Shane Carwin Out Of UFC 125 Fight With Roy Nelson

Shane Carwin has been forced to pull out of his UFC 125 bout with Roy Nelson due to an injury. Carwin and Nelson had been developing some bad blood in the wake of Shane Carwin being tied to a performance enhancement drug trial. Nelson criticized the former interim heavyweight champion for the PED link and had caused Carwin to respond with anger.

Shane Carwin's blog has the info on his pulling out:

I am going to pull out of the fight with Roy Nelson. As many of you know I have been having some back pain. I had an MRI yesterday and I have some damage that may really require surgery. If the doctors do not have to perform surgery then I will be out 8-12 weeks. If they do have to perform surgery I do not know how long I will be out of action.

There is no word yet on a replacement opponent for the rotund but skilled Nelson.
