Shane Carwin excited about tonight's opportunity

"This week has been a whirlwind I have found myself on TV shows I normally watch, endorsing products I usually drink, and being treated like a super star. The entire casino and strip is loaded with ads for UFC 116 it is amazing. The hotel room is larger then my first couple of homes and they even have poker tables with Brock and me on them. There is no doubt in my mind I a living the American Dream. Tonight it is not about winning a belt or being ranked number one in the Heavy Weight Division. Tonight is about two super talented big guys who have put a life time of work into being the very best they can be. Tonight all the hard work and sacrifices comes down to 25 minutes of war. I am honored that Lesnar would give me the chance. It takes a real man to face the very best after a long lay off. Brock doesn't seem to take any short cuts and I expect to see the very best Brock Lesnar ever tonight. He is a tough fight for anyone and holds the one thing that all of us fighters in the division are hunting for, the UFC strap."

Shane Carwin writes on his blog at Shane-Carwin.com just hours away from the biggest fight of his career as he is set to take on UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar in Las Vegas.
