Paul Heyman has posted a very interesting blog on THE HEYMAN HUSTLE site about the main event for UFC 116, UFC Champion Brock Lesnar vs Interim Champion Shane Carwin. You can read the entire blog if you CLICK HERE.
Heyman, who readily admits to being a member of Lesnar's inner circle, has heavy praise for Carwin. Here is a key excerpt:
"Watch the video of Carwin vs Frank Mir. Ladies and gentlemen, readers of this blog, let me tell you I was right there, sitting 1st row. Only the cameraman and referee were closer. Shane Carwin hits hard. Scary hard. Inhumanly hard. Hard, fast, and violently. This guy is no F'N joke. And that's exactly what Brock Lesnar wants. A fight. A real competitor. A 100 percent bonafide bad ass who will push Brock in training, make Brock go the extra rep, force Brock to cement a gameplan yet be able to improvise as all "Best Ever" Athletes can do. Brock Lesnar is a little under 9 weeks away from sitting in a locker room, looking at his taped hands, and realizing "tonight, I am going to fight a man who wants to take my title away from me. Tonight, I am going to fight an athlete who wants to prove he's better than I am. In just a few moments, I will walk into a sold out arena, with a rabid crowd of people who paid big money to see me lose, with millions watching at home waiting for the moment when this Knockout King smashes me in my face and takes away everything I have worked for, everything I left WWE for, everything I came back from my death bed to prove."
There's a lot of Brock and Heyman's personal friendship revealed in the blog, too. Highly recommended.
