Shane CarwinUFC heavyweight contender Shane Carwin is expected to resume training in 8 to 12 weeks after undergoing successful back surgery earlier this week to relieve pressure on nerves which recently forced him out of a January meeting with Roy Nelson.

“I will be better than ever,” Carwin wrote on Twitter. “Taking over my cardio, I am going to be healthy, which means others won’t be when I’m done.”

It hasn’t been determined when Carwin will step back into the Octagon or who he will face when he returns.
