Well it is one week later and I can't wait to get back in the gym. I have a camping trip I am taking but after that I will be back in the gym helping the guys with up coming fights get ready. I was actually going to go in Monday but I was diagnosed with bronchitis and did not feel well enough to do much of anything.

I went back to work on Thursday and tried to settle back in. It had been awhile. Between all of the cancelations I had been in camp for over a year so I was no longer ahead of the curve on what needed to get done. I am really lucky my boss allows me to work at my own pace but that pace has been lagging lately. I am the designer of the system we use and pretty critical to making sure it work right. I really do love what I do and I am lucky they afford me the time to chase my dreams.

At 35 who knows how much longer my body will allow me to compete at the highest level. I love to compete and I want to be the best at what I do. We have a lot to work on but standing at the base of the mountain you already climbed is a lot less daunting then climbing it for the first time.

I have no idea what the UFC has planned for me yet. I am going to get back to work and try to solve some of my shortcomings, My goal is to face Brock again as soon as possible. I would like another chance and I am willing to work my butt off to get one. Part of the quest will be to win the UFC belt from whoever has it. I want to face the best fighter in MMA and make sure I leave a legacy behind.

I love the sport of MMA, losing has added fuel to the fire. I want to be known for being a complete fighter. I look forward to what ever this sport has in store for me and I am thankful to my Coaches, Training Partners and Sponsors who make this dream of mine possible. Without you I would be at home telling my son and his friends about my glory days as he tries to use my head gear as antennas for TV.

I will be on the road a lot starting August 7th in Bakersfield. While I am out in Bakersfield I am going to try help bring some awareness to the Cal State Bakersfield Wrestling program that is slated to be cut. The sport of wrestling, which is one of the foundations of MMA is under attack and at risk of disappearing because of Title 9. This is all happening as the sport is beginning to have its own version of the NFL with MMA. Imagine the Olympics featuring MMA fighter Ben Askren. We need to do what we can to support our local Wresters and I am doing what I can to help Wrestling as a whole.

Best of luck Shane! You'll be holding that belt soon, Im sure.

It's really hard to not be a fan

TTT Classy as usual.

Can't wait to see you in the cage again!

I would agree with him about Gonzaga having been a harder opponent for HIM.

Gonzaga had him rocked, took him down and he won with a 1 punch KO.

He was beating the living crap out of Brock and only lost because he ran out of gas in a fight that 99% of the time would have been stopped.

All the best Shane.
Look forward to see you ko someone soon.

Best of luck with everything on the road back!

The man is so honest, humble and self critical. Other athletes would do well to learn from his lead.

war carwin.

Best of luck Shane!

Best of luck with everything Shane. I know I am a Brock fan, but after that fight I am a Carwin fan now as well. I know you will have a long road back to the top, but you will get there again, and as a fan I would love to see Lesnar vs Carwin 2 in the future for the title.

thanks for the 110% that you gave us last week.

TTT - save college wrestling!























and War Carwin

I kinda like this guy. TTT

Great stuff from Carwin. But he is dreaming if he thinks the UFC will ever let him near Brock again.

Jesus. MMA and camping do not mix. When will we learn.

 Carwin is the man. He'll beat Brock in the rematch.

But will he survive camping?

I like this, and yes it will be awesome  to hear MMA Fighters Ben Askren and Joe Warren (amongst others) announced and advertised in the next summer olympics
