Shane Carwin showed plenty of heart and guts in his three round performance against Junior Dos Santos at UFC 131 on Saturday night.

Unfortunately for the former UFC interim champion, heart kept him in the fight, but it wasn’t able to put him over the top for a victory.

When the night was over, Dos Santos came out on top by unanimous decision.

Following the events of UFC 131, Carwin skipped out on any post fight press conferences because he had to head to the emergency room to get treatment for the injuries suffered in the loss to Dos Santos.

According to Carwin’s manager Jason Genet of Ingrained Media via Twitter, the Colorado fighter suffered 3 deep cuts, a broken nose and had to go to the emergency room for a CT scan.

Carwin almost went down in the first round after Dos Santos caught him with a good shot that put him down on his knee on the mat. As the Brazilian followed up, Carwin showed tremendous heart to stick in the fight, defending himself, and working his way back to his feet.

Once the final horn sounded, Carwin was bloodied and may have lost a decision, but no one can question his heart for sticking in the fight and giving everything he had.
