With his UFC 111 fight against Frank Mir less than a week away, Shane Carwin talked about the fight and Brock Lesnar in an interview at MMAWeekly
on why the fight is for the interim belt:
As far as the interim belt, Brock is back, so it’s hard for me to understand that. The champ is fighting. He’s fighting this summer… I just think that interim belt is confusing to the fans a little bit.
I realize they announced that before Brock was planning on coming back. I guess they didn’t know the exact situation with him, so it’s understandable that they did that in the situation that they were in. It’s probably pretty hard to reverse that
on Brock Lesnar
I think Brock is good for the sport. He brings a lot of attention to it. Sometimes it’s good and sometimes it’s bad. The more publicity that he brings to it, the new fans that he brings to it just opens a broader range of people to the sport, and that’s good.
