Default Backs Shane Carwin at UFC 111 Backs Shane Carwin at UFC 111

When the massive Shane Carwin enters the Octagon for Saturday’s interim heavyweight championship fight against veteran Frank Mir at UFC 111, he’ll do so with devastating punching power in both hands and a logo on his shirt and shorts.

Less than 24 hours after Blowout’s two-fight sponsorship of fast-rising Jonny “Bones” Jones ended with Jones’ face-breaking first-round stoppage of Brandon Vera, the trading card distributor announced a deal with Carwin, a top-of-the-heap heavyweight who’s 11-0 with five knockouts in his last six fights.

“I’m very excited to be working with Shane Carwin and I look forward to bringing more awareness to Topps UFC trading cards and MMA collectibles,” said Thomas Fish, Blowout’s president and co-owner. “Shane has a huge fan base and is a social networking master. Today we added an area to our site dedicated to MMA in the forum section of our website. I look forward to sharing our passion for the sport with others.”

As part of the agreement, Blowout will receive memorabilia worn by Carwin in Saturday’s fight as well as autographed promotional items from the fighter.

To date, Carwin has appeared on just 35 UFC trading cards (all from 2009 Topps UFC and 2010 Topps UFC Main Event), including eight autographs and 10 memorabilia cards. His 2009 Topps UFC Red Ink Autograph is valued at $300. It’s worth noting that Carwin, a collegiate national champion as a wrestler and a two-time All-America selection as a linebacker at Colorado’s Western State College, also has a 1998 Senior Bowl football card valued at $2.
