Former UFC interim heavyweight champion, Shane Carwin, has informed the fans regarding his return to fighting via a photo of a Rizin FF glove that he has posted on his Twitter account with a caption which said:
“Hey @rizin_PR you are going to need bigger gloves, these do not fit, not even close!”
“I accepted that fight two weeks ago. Would be an honor. It is up to him.”
Fedor Emelianenko has always been seeking a recognizable heavyweight opponent and now it seems like he has found one.
Carwin was able to capture the interim heavyweight title with a knockout of Frank Mir at UFC 111. The last time Carwin fought was in 2011, later he retired from MMA after his two-fight losing skid and having injuries.
