Shane Carwin suffered a minor knee injury during practice, but will still be able to make his December date with Roy Nelson at The Ultimate Fighter 16 Finale. MMA Weekly confirmed with Carwin’s manager that no surgery will be needed.
Carwin was forced to cancel a trip to England for a signing because of the injury. He has not fought since last year because of neck surgery following a loss to current UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos.
The two heavyweights have been going back-and-forth ahead of their fight. Carwin posted an apology on his Twitter account to the fans of England for being unable to attend the signing writing, “I hurt my knee training.”
