Carwin vs. Dos Santos will determine no.1 contender to heavyweight title


Shane Carwin UFC-131-replaced-by-Carwin-vs-JDS/" target="_blank">was just announced to replace Brock Lesnar versus Junior Dos Santos at UFC 131, as Lesnar is battling a recent flare-up of diverticulitis. Yahoo's Kevin Iole tells us that the bout will also decide who's next in line for Cain Velasquez's heavyweight title:

The Carwin-dos Santos fight is a No 1 contender's fight, per Dana #UFC #MMA

Kevin Iole's official Twitter...

Shane Carwin immediately took to his blog, giving his side of the story:

I was training and my phone was blowing up so I looked over and saw some missed calls from Dana and Joe Silva.  I reached out to my manager to see what was going on and he informed me that we are taking Lesnar's spot for 131. 

Junior is a serious fight and not the type of fight that you would normally take on a 30 day notice but I have a dream to chase and I do not have a lot of time to chase it.  This is an opportunity to put myself in contention for the title.  I know my Coaches will have me ready so I have everything to gain.
