Shane Carwin: Face Still Full of Warrior Wounds From JDS
“It’s still pretty ugly man, right (as he points to scarred meat dangling from his eye)? But it’s okay, I’ve now got a big ‘ole freakin’ ball there or something. It took a while. I think I had sutures in about five different spots on my face. It was pretty bad. It took a little time, but it’s part of the game. I don’t mind it. In fact, I kind of enjoy the warrior wounds, you know? I’m already ugly so it doesn’t really matter. I’m disappointed in myself, for sure. You always learn things, and it was real important to come out of that fight having learned something. Not only learn, but have the ability to improve. I need to bring back the tenacity. Be more tenacious. That’s who I am as a fighter and how I got to the Octagon. I need to bring that back and focus more on that sort of stuff, the stuff that got me here.”
Shane Carwin tells the guys over at MMA Nation that he is still looking pretty ugly after his face was batter in (see image) back at UFC 131 this past June by heavyweight contender Junior Dos Santos.
