Former UFC Interim Heavyweight Champion Shane Carwin, who lost to Brock Lesnar for the Undisputed UFC Heavyweight Title at UFC 116 in 2010 and later retired in 2013, says he’s interested in a rematch against the reigning WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
Carwin says he would come out of retirement if the “one-dimensional” Lesnar ever did return to the Octagon. He told FOXSports.com:
“I basically almost died in that fight. In the second round, anybody could have tripped me and landed on me. He’s not coming back. I don’t even know why he would have the desire. He’s not going to improve the part of his game he needs to improve in that short (amount) of time. The guys these days are too far ahead. You can’t be one-dimensional. This isn’t the early ’90s.
“I’m all in. All the pain would be worth that. [In the first fight] I should have let him up and kept punching him in the head. Lesson learned. Cain [Velasquez] learned it. If I didn’t make it obvious what to do to that guy, the next guy did.”
