"I had some friends in the area who watched (UFC 100), and they were watching the UFC for the first time. And they were just appalled by what he had done. Especially what he did with Frank Mir, getting in his face after the victory? That's just disrespectful. You're supposed to have the utmost respect for anybody that goes in there to compete against you. Those are the first words you see when you walk into any dojo ... [My first title defense] will be Cain Velasquez. I really wanted that fight, and Cain deserves a title shot. Cain deserves it, and a lot of people want to see it. I want to see it. So it would be Cain."
The increasingly vocal Shane Carwin continues his retort in response to disparaging comments made by UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar, who will face "The Engineer" at UFC 106 on Nov. 21 for the division title. Carwin has gone on record multiple times about his disdain for Lesnar’s contempt for the sport of mixed martial arts — specifically Brock’s trash talking. Apparently some MMA noobs who are chummy with Carwin had their feelings hurt by Lesnar's July 11 tirade and now it's become his personal vendetta and will exact revenge. While he's already projecting a 2010 title defense against Cain Velasquez, there is a certain pasty-faced goliath waiting to send him back to the unaired preliminary card. Less than a month to go Maniacs ... will this fight live up to the hype?
