Up-and-coming heavyweight prospects, Shane Carwin (9-0) and Neil Wain (4-0), will lock horns at UFC 89: "Leben vs. Bisping" at The National Indoor Arena (NIA) in Birmingham, England, on October 19, according to

Carwin lived up to the hype in his inaugural appearance for the promotion, finishing Christian Wellisch with a punch just 44 seconds into their encounter at UFC 84: "Ill Will" in May. The enormous Colorado native still has not made it into the second round of any of his professional mixed martial arts fights.

In fact, Carwin has spent less than eight minutes COMBINED in his nine pro performances.

Wain was was set to make his Octagon debut against Antoni Hardonk at UFC 85: "Bedlam" last month; however, the British fighter sustained a broken nose during training and was forced off the card at the last minute. He has not competed since a technical knockout win over Victor Aniolek at an Ultimate Force show earlier this year.

Don't expect this one to last very long.
