One minute and forty-eight seconds.
That's the average length of Shane Carwin's four bouts in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Two of those four bouts were against either a former UFC heavyweight champion or contender, and all of them were ended by way of Carwin's massive fists smashing repeatedly into his opponent's face.
Carwin's latest victory was last night against former 2x UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir. The fight was the first in over a year for the undefeated Jackson Submission fighter. Carwin, the underdog in the fight, ended the bout less than four minutes into the first round. The beginning of the action was the beginning of the end for Mir as Carwin pinned him against the cage and buckled him with a series of brutal uppercuts. The victory secured Carwin a UFC interim heavyweight strap.
But you can be sure that he is not satisfied with merely an interim title.
Carwin faced off with current UFC heavyweight champ Brock Lesnar just minutes after his destruction of Mir. Lesnar, who has not fought since his own TKO victory over Mir at UFC 100 in July of 2009 , called Carwin's belt "fake" and expressed his excitment to show that he is the true UFC heavyweight king.
The two behemoths with work out their differences sometime in July on a not yet announced UFC card. The fight will almost surely end violently; the only question is who will still be standing when the dust finally settles?
