Marshall Zelaznik: Loser of Dos Santos vs. Nelson may face Shane Carwin

UK UFC President, Marshall Zelaznik has revealed that the loser of Saturday’s heavyweight clash between Junior dos Santos and Roy Nelson may be matched up with the former UFC heavyweight interim champion, Shane Carwin.

Zelaznik, speaking via ESPN.co.uk, said:

“Shane Carwin is a man people would love to have a win over on their record. His performance against Brock Lesnar was so good that he only sits one or two fights away from a return to a title shot.”

“Junior Dos Santos and Roy Nelson are the two names that, come hell or high water, Shane is going to have to face. 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 v Dos Santos fight plays out may have a bearing on Shane Carwin.”
