... Shane Carwin?
"Beating Brock does not make you Brock. I will still need to insult most of the fighters in my division, flip off the fans, insult the biggest sponsors the UFC has and then and only then will I renegotiate with Zuffa. Dana and Lorenzo have taken good care of my family and I. They have given us more than they are obligated to and we are happy. My manager always says it is not about making money when you fight but to make money when you are not fighting. We really do not have our hands out for anything more – if it comes we will take it and smile. I love fighting for the UFC and for me I choose to do this, I do not have to fight to survive. I am honored to be working for the UFC and representing them in the 'fake' champions category."
UFC Interim Heavyweight Champion, a title deemed "fake" by returning division kingpin Brock Lesnar, is a label that Shane Carwin is honored to have according to his interview with MMA Fighting. The butt-kicking brute will finally get his hands on the former WWE wrestler after months of waiting for Lesnar to heal from his bout with diverticulitis. In the "interim," he's pushed his record to 12-0 by smashing the pants off Frank Mir at UFC 111 last March. Is he the "real" deal? Or will Lesnar send him to the scrap heap right alongside the phony-bologna belt Shane brings to the cage at UFC 116 on July 3?
