In the latest edition of "The KO Corner," my weekly MMA column for The Detroit News, I take a look at the big heavyweight main event this weekend at UFC 131 between Junior dos Santos and Shane Carwin.
To say the UFC's heavyweight division has evolved the last few years would be a substantial understatement.
The days of the slow, plodding fighter who grinds out decision wins are long gone. The new breed is here.
The UFC heavyweight division's renaissance continues Saturday as two top-five fighters meet when hard-hitting Brazilian slugger Junior dos Santos faces powerful wrestler Shane Carwin in a high-stakes bout in the main event of UFC 131 at Rogers Arena in Vancouver.
Not only will the winner solidify his spot near the top of the heavyweight division, the victor is expected to meet UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez, likely in the fall.
