I posted a blog on my site about it. I think it is a much better situation for me. I think Junior has great stand up. I think we match up nicely and add that this is for a shot at the Belt and I think it could have fight of the year opportunity. We won't be putting on a wrestling clinic that is for sure.

If you can DONT BLINK. We both have that kind of power.

So far so good. A lot of what happened in the Lesnar fight can be attributed to diet and supplements. I was not fueling my body properly and essentially I threw too many blows and did not breath enough. Prior to that fight I could have fought at a fast pace for 25 minutes with no real issues. I went for the finish, I missed it.

This time around I have eliminated a lot of the supplements and totally changed my diet. I am laying off the fat foods and have a company (Forged Fuel) that cooks for me. I eat a lot of meals during the day and they are all organic and very lean meals. No red meat, no fat foods. Lots of veggies and sea food.

I also wont be cutting 15 pounds the week of the fight. I will weigh in the 260 range and not cut for this fight or any fight in the future. I cheated myself and my coaches last time of something we all worked hard for. If I had the diet and meals worked out I would be defending my belt not trying to get another shot. I won't ever let that happen again.

Sorry but to me both the diet and the company behind it seem dubious. But if it works for you, great.

Hey Shane, if you had fought Big Country, how do you think that would have played out? I know he's a sponge for punches, but I don't think he could have taken Carwin punches!

That's great man, it's good that you feel lean, and you found the right diet. Hope it works out. Good luck.

 i think if Shane can avoid shots and land some bombs, he can take it however, JDS is a blackhouse bad ass and those fools dont play around i can see JDS outboxing him, but i question his power after beating on country biscuit for 3 rounds and not coming too close to a finish.

Thanks for your honest input Shane, your interaction with the supporters of the sport is fantastic, and makes it quite difficult not to like you. All the best with your bout mate, you've made another fan. :)
