The UFC has signed undefeated heavyweight prospect Shane Carwin to a multiple-fight contract reports Five Ounces of Pain.
Carwin (8-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) last fought in December defeating former-UFC fighter Sherman Pendergast via first-round TKO. In fact, Carwin has won all 8 of his professional fights by first-round knockout or submission with just a single fight making it more than two-minutes.
Earlier this year Carwin was rumored to have signed with EliteXC for a showdown with Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva though it appears the UFC, in desperate need of viable heavyweights, signed the undefeated fighter instead.
No date has been announced for his octagon debut.
