When Shane Carwin clears his thoughts, entire solar systems must rearrange. He’s one of the handful of guys in this world that pushes the earth down whenever he walks. Dude’s keeping the planet down, wtf. Liberate the earth…from Shane Carwin’s shoes. Screw saving the whales, lets save our planet from gargantuan individuals like Shane Carwin and Frank Mir. You guys all remember the whole ‘Frank Mir wishing death on Brock Lesnar’. Shane Carwin made a comment about Mir’s statement in an interview and today on his blog, Carwin says that all of you guys have it completely wrong.
It is amazing that the MMA media has to twist what people say instead of just requesting your own interview or writing what was actually said. This is the reason I prefer to give my interviews in writing. I get you have a job to do but don’t ask me for interviews and then twist what I said to get visitors to your website. Any MMA media that cut and pasted, read the article, just because one site has a sensation yet wrong title doesn’t mean you have to follow. Very misleading journalism.
I have never said Frank Mir was mentally unfit or a terrible human being. What I did say is that if ANY fighter really wishes to kill someone in the Octagon they IN FACT ARE a terrible person. I also stated that I had not heard any of Mir’s comments so I was not directing the comment to him. I had been buried in getting my wife through labor and the baby here safely (29 hours of labor).
There are a lot of fighters that say were fighting to the death or I want to kill that guy when we fight. Fighting is an emotional sport and we all say some stupid stuff, fighters just have a tendency to say it when the mic is on, when our emotions are at our highest. Do I think Frank is unfit or a bad guy? I do not, every experience I have had with him has been good and I really do not have much negative to say about him. I expect he will be in amazing shape and seems to be as hungry as we all are to get a crack at Brock’s title.
Now since everything is clear, Carwin can return to his daily sparring sessions with Mechazilla and Voltron. There was one site that didn’t report on Carwin’s statement regarding Frank Mir and that same site has fighters’ heads photochopped on the bodies of hot chicks just to see what it looks like. [Source]
