Shane Carwin Could Get Loser Of Dos Santos Vs. Nelson

0

According to a report from ESPN UK, after speaking with UFC UK President Marshall Zelaznik it looks as thought Shane Carwin could be right back in the title hunt against the loser of UFC 117's number one contender match between Roy Nelson and Junior Dos Santos:

“Shane Carwin is a man people would love to have a win over on their record,” Zelaznik said. “His performance against Brock Lesnar was so good that he only sits one or two fights away from a return to a title shot.

“Joe [Silva] has a tendency to match fighters who are coming off losses in order to give them their chance to turn things around. So how the Nelson vs. Dos Santos fight plays out may have a bearing on Shane Carwin.”
