Shane Carwin Career

Mixed martial arts career

Carwin made his professional debut at WEC 17, winning his first eight fights by first round stoppage and becoming the Ring of Fire Heavyweight Champion before joining the UFC.

Carwin made his UFC debut against Christian Wellisch on UFC 84's undercard. He won the match by a single punch knockout 44 seconds into the first round, demonstrating his punching ability by launching Wellisch's mouthpiece across the octagon. Carwin won another one-sided match via TKO at 1:31 of the first round after making an appearance in Birmingham, England, against Neil Wain. When Carwin faced former number one contender and well-known Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt Gabriel Gonzaga, he took a major leap forward in competition. Carwin knocked Gonzaga unconscious with a quick right hand at 1:09 of the first round after being stunned by a flurry of punches.

Carwin then set to face then-champion Brock Lesnar at UFC 104, with the winner taking the title against then-champion Brock Lesnar; however, the UFC reconsidered the match and Carwin was confirmed to fight for the title at UFC 106 on November 21, 2009. Lesnar was forced to miss out due to injury, and the fight was postponed, with UFC 108 being the most likely date. Lesnar then pulled out of the match on October 26, and Dana White said at the UFC 105 press conference that Lesnar was too ill to play and was likely to miss the first half of 2010 while recovering from an intestinal disorder and subsequent surgery.

On March 27, 2010, Carwin took on Frank Mir, a former UFC Heavyweight Champion, for the UFC Interim Heavyweight Championship. On his website, Carwin said, "Mir is a legend of the sport, and I would be honored to face him." Carwin had multiple uppercuts from the clinch early in the first round. Carwin eventually took Mir to the ground, stifled mount, and rained heavy punches on Mir's head, thus winning the fight by knockout and becoming the UFC Interim Heavyweight Champion. The match was also the longest fight of Carwin's career, lasting three minutes and 48 seconds; his previous record was his MMA debut against Carlton Jones in a time of 2 minutes and 11 seconds; Beau Dure of USA Today compared Carwin to Mike Tyson, repeating a similar comparison made prior to the event by Mark Wayne of

At UFC 116, Carwin went on to face Brock Lesnar for the undisputed UFC Heavyweight Championship. He dominated the first round, knocking Lesnar down and unleashing a ferocious ground and pound assault on a visibly stunned Lesnar. Lesnar, on the other hand, knocked an exhausted Carwin down and used an arm-triangle choke, causing Carwin to forfeit.

On January 1, 2011, Carwin was supposed to face former IFL Heavyweight Champion Roy Nelson at UFC 125; however, he later announced on his website that he would withdraw from the fight due to back and neck pain, which necessitated surgery that took place on November 2, 2010. The neck surgery was a success, Carwin later reported. Carwin's blog entry on January 3, 2011 said he had just started training since neck surgery, and hoped to be back in the octagon by May or June 2011.

On June 11, 2011, Carwin was supposed to meet Jon Olav Einemo, the country's youngest professional. However, Brock Lesnar was sidelined in another bout with diverticulitis, so Carwin decided to step in to the main event to combat Junior dos Santos. Carwin was dismantled by Dos Santos after a unanimous decision (30–27, 30–27, and 30–26). This was the first fight in Carwin's career to ever reach a decision.

Carwin's blog post on September 9, 2011, he said he was 100% healthy and returning to the octagon in late December or early January. Carwin will require back surgery after being announced on October 16, 2011. He wasn't supposed to be out before mid-2012. However, his recovery took longer than expected, and he was hoping to return to combat from the fall.

Dana White revealed on Thursday that Carwin and Roy Nelson had been chosen as the next coaches for the 16th season of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF), and that they would face each other on December 15, 2012, at The Ultimate Fighter: Team Carwin vs. Team Nelson is the champion of the Nelson Cup Finale. However, Dana White revealed on Twitter that Carwin fractured his knee and would not be facing Nelson in the TUF final on November 14, 2012.

After suffering multiple injuries since his last fight on June 11, 2011, Carwin announced his retirement from mixed martial arts (MMA) on May 7, 2013.

Carwin announced his plans to return to MMA on July 26, 2016, five years after his last competitive bout. Carwin revealed on September 7, 2016, that he had worked with his Ingrained Media team to get him out of the league and became a free agent. Carwin announced on October 28, 2016, that he had signed with the Rizin Fighting Federation. He said he was going to debut on their December 29, 2016, but instead he suffered from an injury.

Carwin was in talks with Bellator MMA in late 2017, but no progress was made, despite his injuries being recovered.

Boxing career

Carwin took part in a boxing exhibition match against professional skateboarder Jason Ellis at EllisMania 13. Carwin had one of his arms duct taped to his body to box Ellis as a result of the peculiar rules. He won the fight after being knocked out in the second round.
