Undefeated UFC heavyweight prospect Shane Carwin has been diagnosed with a deviated septum and will require surgery to repair the injury.

Carwin revealed the news on his personal web site, Shane-Carwin.com.

“(I) ust got home from the specialist and he said my nose requires surgery to repair,” wrote Carwin. “I have a deviated septum and the nose is in pieces.”

According to Carwin, doctors have informed him that he will require six-to-eight weeks to fully heel from the surgery. The recovery time could potentially delay the scheduling of his next fight.

It is believed that Carwin sustained the injury during his first round TKO victory over Gabriel Gonzaga this past Saturday at UFC 96. Carwin shook off a slow start in the fight and put Gonzaga down with punches before forcing the referee to stop the bout.

The victory moved the former NCAA Division II wrestling and football All-American to 11-0 during his pro MMA career with all 11 victories coming via first round stoppage.
