Another bout is confirmed for the free UFC 89 on October 18.  It is a heavyweight clash between Shane Carwin and Neil Wain.  Shane Carwin is a much talked about up and comer in the UFC heavyweight divison and he looked impressive in the first round KO of Christian Wellish at his UFC debut.  However, many say that striking is not his strong suit, but that ground and pound is, which he did not display yet.  We could see it displayed against Neil Wain at UFC 89. it was his ninth consecutive victory via first-round stoppage. UFC UK Division President Marshall Zelaznik said:

British fans will get a chance to see one of the most exciting heavyweight talents in the world, Shane Carwin, lock horns with Neil Wain, who brings his own unbeaten record to the UFC,”  

Neil Wain was scheduled to fight at UFC 85 with Antoni Hardonk, but witdrew due to injury, and he will be back for UFC 89 barring another injury.  This may be a tough fight for the newcomer.
