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

0

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.”
