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.
"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.
