Dana White talks Shane Carwin

August 25, 2010

MMA Fighting had the opportunity to speak with Dana White after Wednesday’s pre-fight press conference for UFC 118. White was asked about the Shane Carwin story.

White on Shane Carwin:

I don’t know enough about it to go into it in depth…But, I know he came up on like a BALCO-type list.  On a list of guys who did it. But, this guy’s [Carwin] fought in the UFC a long time, under regulation and has never tested positive for anything…not a good time for Shane and his family for sure. We’ll see how this whole thing plays out.

Payout Perspective:

Without going into specifics, White supported Carwin and emphasized the fact that the heavyweight contender has never tested positive in the UFC.  Its interesting that this is the first time we’ve heard as far as an explanation for Carwn’s name being linked to steroid use. It is nice to know that Carwin’s employer supports him and White does a good job of reiterating the facts rather than stir the speculation. But, there will come a time where Carwin must face the media and explain himself.

    No there won’t. The prosecutors have already said they won’t go after the athletes. The AC’s can’t do any thing because no one has failed their completely useless when existent drug tests. And the media have already given Carwin a free pass. Carwin just needs to stay quiet a little longer and it will have all blown over.

    The issue will still rear its ugly head the next time he fights.

Got something to say?
