UFC 131 Fight Card: Breaking Down Shane Carwin vs. Junior Dos Santos

UFC 131: Shane Carwin vs Junior dos Santos A look at the Main Event

Bleacher Report's Mike Hodges:

UFC 131 will be Carwin's first appearance inside the Octagon since his loss to Lesnar last year at UFC 116, since then Carwin has spent a substantial amount of time recovering from backs surgery. 

Dos Santos has been on an impressive run since his debut in the UFC, recently defeating Roy Nelson at UFC 117.

The Brazilian has made his tenure in the heavyweight division look easy so far, picking up wins over some of the prominent fighters, including Fabricio Werdum, Gabriel Gonzaga and Mirko Cro Cop. 

Both men hold some notable victories over some the division's top stars, and a win for either Carwin or dos Santos will guarantee a title shot against Cain Velasquez later this year.
