Carwin, Mir fight to determine next contender - USA Today

By Sergio Non, USA TODAY - Shane Carwin's last fight was the first time he emerged as an elite heavyweight, says former champion Frank Mir. "His back was on the ground, stuffed against the cage, and Carwin was able to immediately get up to his feet," Mir said, recalling Carwin's first-round knockout of Gabriel Gonzaga at UFC 96 more than a year ago.
