Former UFC interim heavyweight champion Shane Carwin has spent several months on the sidelines rehabbing from back surgery. Now, Carwin has been given the opportunity to coach on The Ultimate Fighter opposite Roy Nelson.

Everyone knows Nelson for his fun-loving attitude. However, the former winner of TUF doesn’t have a fan in Carwin, as the heavyweight posted on his own personal website recently.

This will be the first time in my adult life that I won’t be working. I will just be focusing on developing a team to win the show and focusing on preparing to knock Roy Nelson out. That is my new job and my new passion. I know Roy likes to be the UFC’s Jester but he better know this is not a joke for me.

The show will begin on FX this September. It will go back to the taped format that was used prior to the first season of FX involving live fights.

Carwin and Nelson will face each other after the show concludes.
