shaneShane Carwin, who was scheduled to challenge Brock Lesnar for the UFC heavyweight title, has been critical of Lesnar in the past.

Now Carwin is asking for prayers for the champ as he recovers from bacterial infection in his intestinal tract.

“I am sure most of you know I am not the leader of the Lesnar Fan Club,” Carwin posted Tuesday on the forums. “That being said, antics or not, he is OUR UFC HWT Champion. He beat a future Hall of Famer to keep that belt and he NEEDS our prayers and good thoughts right now.”

Spoken like a true sportsman.
