“Listen, he’s a tough guy with a ton of heart. He goes in there and he gives it his everything. My thing is I’ve always said to him, I’d love to see you take this thing seriously and rip off some weight,” said White in March of this year. “When you’ve got a chin like that and a heart like that, you can’t deny the guy’s got a great chin, a ton of heart and he can knock people out. If he really could get to 205, he’d be a force at 205. He’d be a scary dude. He’s got great wrestling, awesome submissions, great chin, a ton of heart, and has knockout power.

“Who knows what Roy Nelson could really achieve if he applied himself.”

Carwin also believes that Nelson’s approach of being the ‘every man’ in terms of not walking around with six-pack abs and ripped muscles is essentially not telling the whole story in terms of how he relates to who is actually the ‘average man’ in America.

“I think the other tension is that I am this average guy and I’ve worked my ass off to get to where I’m at, and I started working when I was 15, my mom raised three boys on her own and we were very poor and I grew up working construction and concrete work, and threw boxes at the beef plant, I did everything just to try to survive,” Carwin stated.

“He plays this like he’s this average guy and honestly I don’t think the guy’s ever had a normal job.”

Can't wait for this season.
Team Carwin! Phone Post

I think it is just incredible that two TUF coaches have gone this long without one pulling out due to injury. It's been years since we've seen both TUF coaches make it to the fight and I for one can not wait to see these two behemoths collide.

Oh crap I hope I didn't just jinx it

I haven't watched TUF since like the 6th season, but I cannot wait for this one.

Hope carwin sends fat boy packing out of the ufc for good , no doubt nelson has a great chin but his low tier level Phone Post


Even if Carwin knocks him out in a sceond Roy will still be in the UFC. IF Nelson could get 205 it would be awesome but at the age of 36 I dont think it has much chance of happening

 Carwin is going to put Nelson in a coffin when they fight.  Nelson's got a great chin, but I don't think he can take more a few of Carwin's solid shots.



Big Country has heart, but Carwin is the coolest guy ever!



 TEAM CARWIN

Big fan of Shane here...been that way since before he posted here.



Take it to him Carwin!

Definitely rooting for Carwin in this one

The AVERAGE man!?



 



Nah, jk, I know what Carwin is trying to say.



I like Nelson but I'm more of a Carwin fan and I hope he wins this to be honest. A KO over Roy Nelson would be a great way to come back after a layoff.



War Carwin!

 

I bet Carwin ate few of those meat boxes while throwing them

 id like to see VADA do the testing for this fight

You know what is phony?

This stirring of the pot in hopes anyone will watch.

Fans may watch Carwin vs Nelson.

But no one is going to take time to watch them coach guys who will never make a splash in the UFC.

Unless Court McGee, Efrain Escudero and Amir Sadollah have been burning it up and in title pictures.

TUF died a long time ago.

It used to be a place to watch AAA talent get a crack at the majors.

Now it's like watching single A ball players in Yankee Stadium with the production values of FOX behind them.

Adding in a phony coaching feud will do fuck all.

I'd look to engineer something else to draw more viewers. Phone Post

Low tier level what? Jiu jitsu? Boxing? Wtf are you talking about? Phone Post

I like big country but I never thought of him as the average guy, he seems pretty odd to be honest. Phone Post

Stephen Holder - Carwin is the fuckin man no dobut but you guys do realize that Nelson stood with JDS for three rounds and ate every single thing he had till Junior was so tired his shots felt like kitten paws, right?

Does it really count as standing with him the whole time if he got put on his ass multiple times and was made to look completely ineffective? JDS beat him from pillar to post Phone Post

Dunno about the average guy think, lol, Carwin being humble, most average guys don't have engineering degrees and nor are they built like brick shithouses. You'd be hard pressed to find a smart engineer with that physique and vice versa. Phone Post


You would be surprised. I'm 6'0" and a pretty lean 220lbs, and I know a couple other engineers that are pretty regular in the gym as well.

 I wuld never miss a season of TUF.  And I can't wait for everyone to get to see (what the UG already knows) that Carwin is a great guy AND an amazing fighter.

thirdleg - Just because he's not doing roids doesn't imply he's not taking it seriously, Shane.

Fuck off much?

UGCTT_Fraser_Finlay - The AVERAGE man!?
