Shane Carwin has been itching to return to MMA for some time now and it seems that is finally on the cards, but not how we originally thought. The former interim UFC heavyweight champion has announced that he will return to fighting and that he is now a free agent. This comes from a post he made on the Underground.

Given the entertainment value that comes with an imposing heavyweight like Carwin, it seems strange that the UFC wouldn’t do more to bring him back into the fold. He was a big star in the sport before having to step away due to multiple nagging injuries.

With that being said, there are a number of other promotions that are growing by the day. Bellator is gaining a lot of attention at the moment and is full of talented athletes. Carwin could fit right in over there.
