Shane Carwin clarifies Twitter "controversy"

ProMMAnow.com: What’s the word on this Twitter thing about your account being blocked by the UFC?

Shane Carwin: No issue just over reactive bloggers. Laura (@UFC Twitter) and I have a great relationship. I was giving her a hard time and she was away from the account and did not see it. Lots of people jumped on without asking me (like you are doing). So it was really a non-event. I was giving them a hard time and they took a while to respond.

ProMMAnow.com: You mentioned on your Twitter, "What’s Scott Coker’s number?" Is Strikeforce a company you would like to fight for if you and the UFC did ever part ways?

Shane Carwin: My contract with the UFC will likely wind out my career and I have not thought much farther past the current contract. My focus is winning the UFC Title so I have to be in the UFC to do that. That part of the tweet was to a long time Team Carwin member who had just unfollowed me the day before. Being unfollowed doesn’t really mean anything but we monitor it. He was teasing me and I was teasing him. Notice I said anyone besides Bjorn who doesn’t seem to have Scott’s number. The fact is the UFC has been great to me. They have taken care of me above and beyond what they are contractually obligated to do. When my kid was born they sent a ton of stuff, they get us fighters Christmas presents and most importantly they have built the best stage in the sport of MMA. If you perform on their stage people will take notice of you.
