"After the second round I knew I was in trouble. My nose made it impossible to breathe, my eyes were full of blood and Junior was still coming at me. When the ref stopped the fight in the third, I thought it was over. When the doctor came in the Octagon I knew it was going to be up to me to sell them on letting me continue. I knew I was in deep trouble but I also knew that all I needed was one clean shot. I wanted to keep myself in the fight. I wasn't able to see but I said I could and we continued. When the final bell rang there was no question in my mind who won the fight. I was pretty out of it and needed some medical care. The adrenaline was leaving my body and the pain was coming on pretty fast." -Shane Carwin
UFC heavyweight contender Shane Carwin speaks out after his three round drubbing at the highly capable hands of new UFC number one heavyweight contender, Junior dos Santos. Carwin was brutally battered over the course of the fight and his face was a bloody mess when referee Herb Dean called for the ringside physician to check the fighters vision in the fights' third frame.
Carwin drops to 13-2 following the loss and has now fallen short in consecutive fights for the first time in his career.
Dos Santos moves to 14-1 with the unanimous decision victory and will next face current UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez.
