Shane Carwin might be done competing for the UFC, but he’s not forgetting about MMA. The former UFC heavyweight interim champion is the new vice president of fighter development for Colorado’s Prize Fighting Championship (PFC).
“The fighters and trainers will be more than welcome to call me,” said Carwin. “I hope I can give these fighters a roadmap for success in life. Along with that, I hope to bridge the gap between the promoter and the fighters. If the fighters and trainers are happy and performing, the sky is the limit for them and PFC.”
Carwin last saw action at UFC 131 in June 2011, losing in a bloody one-sided contest to future champion Junior dos Santos. He coached on The Ultimate Fighter opposite Roy Nelson, but neck and back surgeries caused the 38-year-old Carwin to call it quits this past May.
PFC held their first event in 2012 and they return on July 13 with Tony Sims vs. Thomas “Wildman” Denny from the Magness Arena in Denver, CO.
