Shane Carwin is an MMA fighter who is one of the coaches in Season 16 of the FX mixed martial arts competition series, "The Ultimate Fighter."

Shane Carwin, 12-2 in his mixed martial arts career, is unquestionably one of the hardest one-shot punchers in the entire sport. He knocked out the likes of Christian Wellisch, Gabriel Gonzaga and Frank Mir en route to winning the interim UFC heavyweight title in 2010. Now fully healthy after back surgery, the former NCAA Division II champion asked for the chance to coach the next generation of UFC stars on the longest-running sports reality TV series in the world.

Titles that Carwin has held include Interim UFC Heavyweight Champion, two-time NCAA Division II Wrestling National Runner-Up Heavyweight (1996 and 1997), NCAA II Wrestling National Champion Heavyweight (1999), two-time NCAA II All-American in Football, and Ring of Fire Heavyweight Champion. He also has a Purple belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. He was invited to participate in the NFL Draft Combine in Indianapolis along with top prospects.

The disappointment of going undrafted in the NFL — and also failing to be among the undrafted collegians who were invited by teams to mini-camp "auditions" — was a significant factor in his decision to become an MMA fighter.

Carwin earned his BS in Mechanical Engineering from Colorado School of Mines and his BA in Environmental Technology from Western State College.

He also works as a mechanical engineer with his local water district
