It looks like a UFC heavyweight title shot is coming sooner rather than later for the big man Shane Carwin. According to MMA Madness, instead of Carwin facing Cain Velasquez at UFC 104 in October as expected, he will face Brock Lesnar at UFC 106 on Nov. 21 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.
It will mark Lesnar’s second UFC Heavyweight Ttle defense after taking the belt from Randy Couture at UFC 91 in November of last year. Lesnar finished Couture with a second round TKO to win the title. He then vindicated his only loss by defeating Frank Mir at UFC 100 back in July with another second round stoppage.
