Shane Carwin out for up to twelve weeks after surgeries

Former UFC interim heavyweight champion, Shane Carwin will be out of commission for at least twelve weeks after undergoing successful surgeries on his back to correct a multitude of physical problems.

Carwin’s manager, Jason Genet, speaking via MMAFighting.com, said:

“It went as good as it could have, but it was worse than we thought it was, if that makes sense. His body was out of whack and it could have caused some severe damage if it had not been addressed. It was very much required. When he woke up, the pain in his back where knife-pain was in the last few weeks was gone, he could feel his fingers, and the numbness was gone.”

“There doctor said he was surprised Shane could compete with the damage as it was, but with the surgery, there’s no reason he won’t be able to fight and possibly even perform at a higher level. Once Shane gets back into the motions, we think it’ll be relatively quick for him to get into fighting shape. He’s not a guy who has a lot of ring rust.”
