Shane Carwin unretired? The ex-UFC champ offered to fight Jon Jones and save UFC 197

Shane Carwin unretired? The ex-UFC champ offered to fight Jon Jones and save UFC 197

The mere thought of Shane Carwin’s watermelon fists bashing into the skull of Jon Jones may have been too much for this MMA world to handle. When news broke that Daniel Cormier was injured and out of his UFC 197 title defense versus Jones, a select few MMA lifers stepped up to the plate to grab the potential short notice fight. Nearly five years since his last MMA bout, none other than Shane “MF-ing” Carwin emerged from the fog to welcome Jones to the UFC’s heavyweight division.

Bah Gawd, that’s Shane Carwin’s music?!?!

In a different timeline, Jones forced the UFC’s hand and demanded his first fight at heavyweight be against a former UFC heavyweight belt holder. Carwin ripped off his a tear-away pants suit only to reveal he was wearing Reebok fight shorts under his business suit the entire time. Carwin versus Jones at heavyweight, could have been an amazing comeback fight for both ex-UFC champions.
