According to a report made by ESPN UK, after they spoke with UK UFC president Marshall Zelaznik, it would appear as if Shane Carwin may be very close to getting a shot at the title again. According to the report Carwin will most likely get a bout with the loser of Roy Nelson vs. Junior Dos Santos.
“Shane Carwin is a man people would love to have a win over on their record,” Zelaznik said. “His performance against Brock Lesnar was so good that he only sits one or two fights away from a return to a title shot.
“Joe [Silva] has a tendency to match fighters who are coming off losses in order to give them their chance to turn things around. So how the Nelson vs. Dos Santos fight plays out may have a bearing on Shane Carwin.”
