Shane Carwin: ‘I Just Hate’ Roy Nelson; Two Will Fight At TUF 16 Finale

Former interim UFC heavyweight champion Shane Carwin is pretty blunt when it comes to his feelings towards Roy Nelson.

“I just hate the guy,” said Carwin, during a recent appearance on MMAjunkie.com Radio. “I’ll fight him in the street, I don’t care. It’s hard to like a backstabber.”

Carwin (12-2) and Nelson (17-7) are the current coaches on The Ultimate Fighter. The heavyweights will square off at the TUF 16 Finale in December.

It’s not too surprising that Carwin and Nelson have a genuine disinterest in the other. Outside of being UFC heavyweights – and wanting to become the champion – they share little in common.

“I just wasn’t up for it,” said Carwin, of his time on TUF with Nelson. “I didn’t want to talk to the guy. I don’t like him.”

Carwin said he grew tired of the approach “Big Country” took to the show, saying, “This is very serious. This is a professional part to me.” Nelson was questioned when he allowed the next fight on a recent episode to be picked by the fighters drawing straws.
