Former heavyweight champion Shane Carwin announces retirement


 It's been almost two years since heavyweight Shane Carwin had competed in the Octagon and fans were starting to wonder when they would see him back in action. Unfortunately that day won't come, as today Carwin announced his retired on Twitter:

Officially retired 2day:-) thank you to my family, friends and fans! #dreambig GOD BLESS!!!

read official Twitter...

Carwin burst into the UFC's heavyweight division in 2008, winning his first four fights by KO or TKO in the first round, including winning the interim heavyweight title versus Frank Mir. Carwin was seconds away from stopping champion Brock Lesnar to unify the title in 2010, but the champion battled back, submitting Carwin in the second round. Carwin would fight once more, a three round decision loss to Junior Dos Santos.

I would say enjoy your retirement, but realistically, you are just retiring from just one of your job's. At any rate, good luck, and start enjoying more time with the family.
