In a series of tweets on his TWITTER page, Carwin revealed he has signed a contract to fight at UFC 125 on January 1st, but was not at liberty to disclose the name of his opponent.
Rumors have been swirling the opponent would be fellow stand-and-swing king Roy Nelson.
However, Nelson through a potential monkey wrench into those rumors during an interview with The Las Vegas Sun today, when he stated he was in no hurry to jump into the Octagon on January 1st.
"My knee is not 100 percent yet. I'm still in physical therapy. Right now, (January) probably seems a little too soon," Big Country told the Sin City news periodical, "If Brock Lesnar loses I'd like to fight him next. My knee would be healed up by then because he likes to take a little time off between fights."
Nelson added, "Anything that puts me back in title contention is the biggest thing."
Without ever mentioning Nelson's name, Carwin tweeted "Maybe he is scared to sign."
