NmyBlood Posted August 18, 2010 Report Share Posted August 18, 2010 QUOTE=dfwGSP;1122980]I'm gonna need some proof on Carwin before I condemn him. Shane Carwin = 6'1 265lbs. End of Story..Your "Proof". He's the Great hype machine that failed. They used to post him at "6'5" on the Ufc stat page. Then 6'3'. Now 6'2..which is still giving him 1/2 an inch lift. Even with his 35lbs of Jelly on him..he's at best 6'1 230lbs. Even at that size the man has Clearly taken "enhancement"..aids. I am 6'1 185lbs. When I lean up I walk around at 175lbs & that is still at 10-12% body fat. Rather Low but nowhere near as low as someone like Rich Franklin who gets as low as 4% Body Fat. Rich btw is a True 6'2, fights at 205 & walks around at about 220. When I am not training I go as high as 20% body fat & then walk around at around 190-195lbs. So let's give hime a larger frame than me (bones). Shall we add..15 lbs? a Tad much for just a frame but let's go with that to finish this Scenario. So a Lean Carwin..could be as low as 190lbs. Now we see he likes the sugar treats by his Ovally challenged mid section. So let's say he is Never Lean. add 15lbs (damn bone density) to my weight at a higher body weight of 190 lbs..putting him at 205..for his version of lean. Now I like to stay lean & not bulk up..so let's give Carwin another say 25 lbs of Lean Muscle mass over me..that is quite a bit but..can be done. Example..it has taken GSP a Lean fighter almost 1 year to put on & maintain a Lean 8 lbs of muscle. So now we have a Shane Carwin at about 230lbs. Still from his last fight against Lesnar at 265lbs..35 lbs Under wieght~!~ That is a staggering difference. Try training at even a moderate level & Gain 35lbs of fat at the same time. You'd have to eat 5,000 calories a day..just to gain just under 2lbs per day & you'd have to eat that every single day without break to keep it on. Ain't happenin. We all saw his Cardio was shi@. So attribute that to the already 35lbs of body fat he carries around with him. We also know Muscle heads gas out much quicker because of the demands on the body to feed itself. Look at Forrest Griffin. 6'3 220ish Lean as fu#$~!~ Far more muscle on him than Carwin. No, Muscle does Not have to be bulked up to hold weight. Muscle lean compared to body fat weighs more. When out of shape up to as high as 235lbs. Countless examples of Fighters Bigger than Carwin who are nowhere near his numbers. Another example is Brock Lesnar as a "comedic wrestler"....(wwe). The guy was at 330lbs & lean. Yes, Brock to has done the "enhancement aids". Before Brocks Reality check he cut from 280lbs down to 265lbs. Even at 280lbs he was 50lbs less than what he "acted" at. Now. He says he doesn't even Cut weight. He's at 265lb lean without about 15lbs of body fat. A small amount for a Man his heigth. He had to put 30 lbs back on just to get back up to 265 after he got Ill. That means Brock "Freak Of Nature" Lesnar was down to 235lbs at a true 6'3 & Massive Frame...one much larger than Carwins. Just Look at their shoulder base standing next to one another. So now Brock is fighting 80lbs or so under what he "wrestled in wwe" at. Ouch. I'm certain that's natural though. (cough)..horsesh&^. Look it's just the way it is people. Athletes at this level in order to put the size & look of a "heavyweight"..on.."enhance" in anyway they can. It's the fools that go to the roids anymore when there are so many "Legal" ways to put on size anymore. Thats Struve guy..is what 6'10 reportedly? Yet..he fights at 245lbs? ha~fu*~!~ He is lean yes. But..a bean pole?...hardly. He is nearly 1 foot taller than Shane Carwin. Shane has the power of a heavywieght in his hands..but he is a LHW..who refuses to be disciplined in his diet. It's ok. He can beat a lot of fighters at HW. But he will never hold the belt..even if he doesn't get Suspended for 1 year like sherk did for "illegal performance enhancement)..what a f'n joke..to call it that. JDS.. that is the future of the Heavyweight division. If Jones should ever step up to heavyweight which he could do easily. JDS..should welcome him. He (Jones) would quickly change his mind. Even Cain..fights at around 240 with 15lbs of belly fat & taller than Carwin. Mir is finally realizing the difference between heavyweights & fighters that could & Should..be at LHW & letting his body take on natural form. I do expect the Ufc to go to lengths to protect truth of Carwins use..since he has some "Juice"..no pun intended behind him after losing to Lesnar. a Fight I'd love to see is Vitor Belfort Vs Shane Carwin. That would show exactly where Carwin should be. Note.. I was at 117 & watched Roy Nelson take shot after shot from JDS. That Man regardless of his 60lbs of Jelly Belly..has more heart & Stamina than almost anyone in the heavyweight division & I'd love to see him against Carwin. Carwin punches hard..but is Not a HW. The Sooner he embraces that..he may have a career in the ufc for more than another year or two. If not.. he has already began sliding down the Proverbial "Mountain". We all know what happens when Chubby is sliding down that Mountain.. we Run the F..away. In other words.. Lose Interest. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
