UFC 116 Bet Pick: Shane Carwin Vs Brock Lesnar

With all the hype and drama associated with Brock Lesnar he still only has 5 MMA matches under his belt and has a year of ring rust coming back from a near life threatening intestinal infection. Brock is healthy now and has changed his diet making a leaner body and he does not have to cut as much weight to get to the 265 lb limit. Shane Carwin comes in with more experience for once in his fights. Carwin is 12-0 with none of his fights getting out of the 1st round. Both have top notch wrestling backgrounds but Brock has more athleticism and the stronger wrestling game. Brock will want to brink it to the mat and use his ground and pound. Carwin has the size to match with Brock and has not had to show his ground game. Take Carwin as a nice dog. He has the power and ground game to neutralize Brock's ground game. Add in the year lay off for Brock and less experience you have to take the +125 odds DOG.
