The best way to describe Shane Carwin vs. Jon Olav Einemo is, as my bud Noel mentioned, Elemental vs. Elemental. Rivers will shift, entire atmospheres will collapse on itself, and all that’s left will be one fighter standing in the middle of the cage victorious. Dana White just announced that Shane Carwin is slated to meet UFC newcomer, Jon Olav Einemo at UFC 131. You’ve heard me talk about Jon Olav Einemo (and if you haven’t, read this). At one point in Pride, Einemo was the guy to defeat Fedor. Pride FC Fedor people, before M-1 Global did — whatever.
Jon Olav Einemo collects arms. The guy has a collection of them hanging just above his fireplace. Shane Carwin, collects human consciousness through sticking his gargantuan fists directly in someone’s brain. By the end of June 11, 2011, someone will leave the octagon missing a vital part of their body — and the world will enjoy watching it.
