Quote of the Day: Shane Carwin Attributes Adrenaline Dump Against Brock Lesnar at UFC 116 to Referee's Words

"Anyone who questions my cardio should come and train with me. We trained for a twenty-five minute fight but things go wrong. It happens. I basically had an adrenaline dump towards the end of the first (round) and I was unable to recover in between rounds.

"I think the biggest factor of the adrenaline dump was hearing Rosenthal say, `Brock I am going to stop it,' and then not stopping it. He said it at least three different points in the round, and each time I went for the finish and it never came. It sucked the wind and life out of me."

Shane Carwin talks to Heavy.com


Bonus quote:

 "I am the guy that can beat Brock Lesnar.

"This is not a lot different than his first fight with Mir when he was pretty dominant and got caught. I had my body fail me, but I know I can win that fight if I ever get a second chance. Brock has the heart of a champion and he won't break or quit easily. But everyone can be  beaten."

UPDATE: Shane Carwin responds to me on Twitter:

"I don't blame anyone Nate."

UPDATE: I changed the headline because "Carwin blames ref" is a bit of a distortion. Thanks to BE reader AzianG for suggesting a better one. The goal here is to spur discussion and be a little provocative, I missed the mark here. Apologies to Mr Carwin and E. Spencer Kyte.
