0

Shane Carwin wrote an update about his preparation for his upcoming bout with Frank Mir among other things on the <a href=http://www.mma.tv>UG</a>:<br><br>"As most of you know my wife and I had our baby girl on the 24th. Lani was due the 11th and was induced on the 22nd and had a long labor. Alexia Carwin (Lexi) was born at 0024 on the 24th. I was back training on the 25th."<br><br> … "My boss actually got on me this week for looking half dead at work and not being on it. With the new baby, training and working I am really under a ton of pressure. This is the biggest fight of my life, the longest training camp of my life and I am trying to be a good father and husband to my wife."<br><br>"You know they say you are never given more then you could carry in life. I can say I have had days where I question that theory."<br><br>"This fight with Frank is my career balled up into 25 minutes. If I beat Frank I answer questions about who I am and what I can do in this sport. If I don't I am just another heavyweight in a sea of great fighters. I know when I wake up in the morning and I can barely walk out the door to start my morning run that I am giving it 100% of my effort."<br><br>"That is all you can control in life, giving 100%. I train and live like each fight may be my last and to move ahead I have to make a statement."<br><br>"Thank you to the supporters and fans that will tune in to watch this fight. Win or Loose I guarantee you I will be ready for a war. I have trained harder then I have before, I have sacrificed my mind and body for this opportunity and honestly I can't wait to release this built up pressure and aggression on Frank."<br><br>Follow my progress on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Shane-Carwin) on twitter.com/shanecarwin or my social networking site www.shane-carwin.com.
