Shane Carwin No Fan Of Roy Nelson's 'Average Guy' Act

Shane Carwin will be working as a coach on the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter on FX. His opposing coach will be former Ultimate Fighter winner, Roy Nelson.

UFC president Dana White has already talked about the season being difficult because of having to put up with Nelson's antics, and now it seems as though Carwin is stepping a little bit outside of his usual game of not trash talking when discussing Nelson's dedication and personality.

From a recent MMAWeekly Radio interview:

"Roy's a great fighter, don't get me wrong, very talented, could he be more talented? I think so. If he took things more serious."

...

"I think the other tension is that I am this average guy and I've worked my ass off to get to where I'm at, and I started working when I was 15, my mom raised three boys on her own and we were very poor and I grew up working construction and concrete work, and threw boxes at the beef plant, I did everything just to try to survive," Carwin stated.

"He plays this like he's this average guy and honestly I don't think the guy's ever had a normal job."

I've grown tired of the TUF formula, and can't see these two guys attracting a huge audience. But I suppose I am a little more interested than I thought I would be in the interaction between the two coaches.
