Shane Carwin Breaks Nose In Bout With Gabe Gonzaga At UFC 96

From an interview with MMAweekly.com following his win over Gabe Gonzaga at UFC 96, Shane Carwin talks breaking his nose:

“I went out and executed the game plan; I wanted to see if he would stand and trade with me. He crushed my nose and dazed me a bit. Next thing I know, he has a deep single that we worked on defending the whole camp and -boom! -out of nowhere, he sweeps me with an amazing sweep. I have a black belt on top of me trying to pass my guard and all I could think of is “get to your feet.” When I got to my feet, I wanted to give him a taste of his own medicine and that was it. I want to thank Gabe for giving me the opportunity and my first broken nose.”
