Is Shane Carwin A Top Ten Heavyweight After UFC 96 Win?

New, 15 comments

At UFC 96, Shane Carwin seized the largest win of his career in his TKO victory over top ten heavyweight Gabriel Gonzaga. Carwin continued his streak of finishing fights within a couple of minutes of the first round. However, up until the point of landing the big right that put Gonzaga down, he was getting handled. Gonzaga had him rocked a couple of times and took him down relatively easily. However, Carwin was able to weather the storm and get back to his feet rather quickly. With Carwin's performance against Gonzaga, and what little you've seen of him, how does he stack up against the other UFC heavyweights? Also, more importantly would you consider him a top ten heavyweight after this victory over Gonzaga?
