UFC 111’s Shane Carwin juggles duties as fighter, engineer, husband and father
The notion of “spare time” has always been a relative term for heavyweight contender Shane Carwin.
The 6-foot-2, 265-pound father of two juggles a fulltime job as a mechanical engineer at the North Weld County Water District in Lucerne, Colo., with another as a professional mixed martial artist in the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
Today, while discussing his interim title fight with fellow heavyweight Frank Mir at UFC 111, Carwin said he’s been given time off from his day job to prepare for the March 27 fight. But he’ll keep the office gig as long as possible – or until other opportunities arise.
