"At 35 who knows how much longer my body will allow me to compete at the highest level. I love to compete and I want to be the best at what I do. We have a lot to work on but standing at the base of the mountain you already climbed is a lot less daunting then climbing it for the first time. I have no idea what the UFC has planned for me yet. I am going to get back to work and try to solve some of my shortcomings, My goal is to face Brock again as soon as possible. I would like another chance and I am willing to work my butt off to get one. Part of the quest will be to win the UFC belt from whoever has it. I want to face the best fighter in MMA and make sure I leave a legacy behind."
Former UFC Heavyweight Interim Champion Shane Carwin (via The Underground) recognizes the small window he has to get himself back into the division title picture after falling short against Brock Lesnar earlier this month at UFC 116 in Las Vegas. At 35, "The Engineer" may have only one more chance to make it happen, but if he keeps winning, he may or may not get the chance to face the former WWE star depending on the outcome of the champ's upcoming fight with Cain Velasquez at UFC 121 in Anaheim. Carwin may indeed eventually score gold, but will his legacy be complete without a win over Lesnar?
