"Average Guy" Shane Carwin Explains Tension Between "Never Had A Real Job" Roy Nelson | UFC NEWS

“Roy’s a great fighter, don’t get me wrong, very talented, could he be more talented? I think so. If he took things more serious. 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. He plays this like he’s this average guy and honestly I don’t think the guy’s ever had a normal job.”

UFC heavyweight Shane Carwin recently told about the tensions between himself and TUF coaching opposite, Roy Nelson.

  1. the original steve says:

    i wanted this to be about roy’s steroid comments

  2. dante080 says:

    Maybe if carwin didn’t have that expensive “supplement” addiction he could quit a job or 2.

  3. Texas says:

    I have a normal job and I couldn’t afford steroids. I’ve worked for everything I have too. Hip hip horray for Carwin!

  4. Mark Munoz is a joke says:

    Good way 2 avoid a subject
    You should run for president Carwin
    Good shit

  5. T.DADDY says:

    Carwin will destroy nelson.. rd1 ko

  6. ThaGreenBandit says:

    Carwin needs to knock out Roy… if he cant it looks like poop for him

  7. aaron says:

    Carwin will lose. BTW, you can’t train for talent. Dummy, you either have it or you don’t. Talent you are born with. Skill comes with more work and dedication.

  8. HaVaginaButts says:

    Of course Roy is a lazy bum who could be dominating LHW… but he is who he is… if that’s what he wants to be… so be it. I’m just happy he’s willing to scrap.

    • CombatRusse says:

      He may look lazy. But I don’t think that a lazy person can have a juijitsu black belt.
      Anyway I’m a big fan of Nelson since his IFL days
      And I must recognize that I respect Carwin more, if his story is true. Growing up from a poor environement to become an engineer and a world level fighter is a good achievement

  9. Mr. Ap says:

    Roy lazy? Probably. Should he go to LHW? Sure why not. But look at it this way. No one has been able to knock him out in UFC. Should be a good fight if they both can keep a spare gas tank on the side.

  10. Niko Garcia says:

    Omg, Shane took the words right out of my mouth. Roy jokes around and acts like he’s hot shit ever since he knocked Brandon Schaub out, (sorry if I spelled his name wrong,) but seriously he does. It’s aggravating and I hope Shane knocks this fool out and goes back to knock outs in the first round. That’s what we love to see.

  11. seriously? says:

    Look in a shane fan, but let’s be realistic, carwin has hands that are as wide as cinderblocks, in this day and age they don’t let you take abuse like they let cabbage vs silvia, and silvia cant even strike that hard, where the f is nelson gonna win this fight? Lesner couldn’t take him down, eveeryone else gets koed in the first round except jds w superior movment, wtf is nelson gonna do? He’s gonna be the first person who gains perminant brain damage. Taking a punch is cool of you can recover and advance your skills, but a fat ass nelson is just a punching bag for carwin and his punches are cinderblocks, nelson won’t last a round shooting in and testing those cinderblocks, sorry nelson fans but this is a stupid one sided affair…get used to it. Carwin knows, nelsons fat ass knows, just gotta wait till dec to make it official….

    • B-rad says:

      Dont count out Roys kickboxing skill, he has a nasty overhand right.. Did you see his last fight, he hit dude with that overhand and he stiffend him up with it.. Plus hes got the invincible chin, Jr. couldnt crack it, no way Carwin does.

      • 757 says:

        Roy is an out of shape clown. He won’t win and even if he did who cares. He won’t win though. When he is laying face down in his own beard you guys will be talking about how you knew it was going to happen. You will all change your tunes because you are fair weather fans. That’s the nature of the beast. Roy is fat and an embarrassment to the sport. He could be better is crap. He has no motivation. The fact that he has natural skill makes him even worse. Carwin please KO this dump so we can move on.

        • stephen riddle says:

          No who cares about your comments.

        • B-rad says:

          So your sayin because Roy Nelson doesnt have a six pack and doesnt look like a comic book character, he must not be a good fighter? The man has cardiovascular endurance, he fought 3 hard rounds against the HW champion, took an ass whoopin yes, but he fought hard for 15 minites straight… Im sure you will say you can, but can you exhert yourself as hard as you can for 15 minites? No? Dont talk shit to a guy who does what he loves for a living.. If he was a fat slob who couldnt fight at all then he would be 0-10 or somethin..

    • JusRaw says:

      Carwin is a one trick pony. If Nelson tightens up his boxing and footwork he will dog walk Carwin all around the cage

    • LOL@you! says:

      Brock couldn’t take down Carwin?

      Maybe you didn’t see the end of that fight?

  12. stephen riddle says:

    Man if yall dont know wtf yall are talking about then stfu! Roy is getting ripped and is training hard now, hes gonna have gas that whole fight just watch, i like carwin too but damn whats he gonna do when he punches hisself out, hes gonna get koed. I guesstimate roy weighs maybe 230 now.
