UFC 111 Results: Shane Carwin Derails the Frank Mir Space Station

via cdn.cagepotato.com

So much for that Frank Mir/Brock Lesnar rubber match.  Shane Carwin had something to say about that.

The pace started slow, Mir looking for spots to throw with Carwin looking to clinch.  Carwin kept Mir pinned up against the fence and tried to wear down the former champ with punches and knees to the legs.  Referee Dan Miragliotta made another questionable separation before Carwin found himself pressing Mir against the cage yet again.

If you blinked you might have missed Carwin's power.  He landed two massive left uppercuts that dropped Mir.  Miragliotta gave him plenty of time, allowing Mir to take punishment.  Mir made a desperation kimura attempt, but kept getting hit in the face for his troubles.  He eventually flattened himself face down on the mat while Carwin rained more punishment.  Miragliotta must have won a bet because he let Frank take even more shots until mercifully stepping in to end the bout.
