Brock Lesnar Not on Shane Carwin's Mind Heading Into UFC 111

NEW YORK -- Brock Lesnar will be sitting cageside when Shane Carwin and Frank Mir fight for the interim heavyweight title at UFC 111, but Carwin says the heavyweight champion's presence will not distract or motivate him during the fight. MMA Fighting spoke to the undefeated Carwin at Thursday's media workout about his year-long layoff, dealing with Mir's size and strength and his improved ground game.

Carwin also predicted a knockout victory over the former champion. Check out the video below.
