Shane Carwin: Maybe Dan Miragliotta is a big Frank Mir fan

This might hurt a bit...

Quoteworthy:

"I was confident in the game plan my coaches crafted. I would never call getting in the cage with Mir "easy" and I trained for the war I was expecting. I felt I was busy and I knew I was just going to try to pin him again so (the referee break) did not affect me too much. It was really weird as Dan was quick to break up the action but he seemed to let Frank get punched longer than necessary. Maybe he is just a big Mir fan."

UFC heavyweight number one contender Shane Carwin sounds off on his "war" with Frank Mir -- which was in reality a one-sided beatdown by "The Engineer" that put returning champion Brock Lesnar on notice. Carwin was a bit surprised that referee Dan Miragliotta broke up the action against the cage during round one -- but not as surprised when he let Mir take several unanswered blows after collapsing face down on the canvas. Any Maniacs out there that don't have a problem with the stoppage?
