Carwin, who has recently been cleared to return to action following back surgery, will compete head-to-head with Roy Nelson on the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter.
The two heavyweights, who will eventually collide after the show finishes, do not have much in common other than being MMA fighters.
Carwin left some interesting remarks on his own personal website recently, including strong words for “Big Country.”
“I will just be focusing on developing a team to win the show and focusing on preparing to knock Roy Nelson out,” Carwin posted. “I know Roy likes to be the UFC’s Jester but he better know this is not a joke for me.”
Carwin, who works as an engineer while also training and fighting, will only be focusing on TUF during the fall. The show airs on FX beginning in September.
