M.M.A. News: Carano vs. Cyborg Video; Brock Lesnar's Next Opponent?

I’ve posted the Gina Carano-Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos fight which took place this past Saturday night on Showtime. Spike TV is blowing its own horn by saying that the re-broadcast of UFC 100 (which went up against the Carano-Cyborg match) drew two million viewers compared with the 576,000 that watched Santos beat Carano. The one thing to consider is that Showtime is available in roughly one-fifth as many households as Spike.

Meanwhile, Shane Carwin is rumored to be the next opponent for UFC Heavyweight Champ Brock Lesnar. Carwin was supposed to fight Cain Velasquez at UFC 104, with the winner getting a title shot against Lesnar. Velasquez, though, suffered an undisclosed injury and so the undefeated Carwin has now reportedly been named the man to fight Lesnar at UFC 106 in late November.
