i used to really love watching shane fight, hes coming back which makes me happy, who would you like to see him fight upon return, i say Arlovski vs Barnett winner, or Werdum vs rothwell loser or even a young strong prospect like that nganou guy

Travis Browne would be good first opponent

from fan pov i like the ngannou idea, but i not sure carwin should be fighting prospects.

I'd say a Hunt, Nelson or Arlovski would be a good fight. put him against a vet, where a W gets him some hype but a loss doesnt derail anything.

A can. Anything ranked higher could cause him to lose. He's not Lesnar.

I was thinking Arlovski or Nelson as well. I'd be happy with either of those

I think he would hurt Travis baddd. And Nelsons no fun now. Give him to a rising star like Lewis or Ngannou. Carwin is a big name that realistically isn't getting anywhere near the title. A win for one of those guys is a huge boost and if they lose the UFC can play it off as Carwin having cinder blocks for hands.

Wouldn't mind seeing him fight Jared Rosholt, or the winner of Shamil Abdurakhimov vs Walt Harris. Maybe even Tybura.

Werdum or Browne would be the opponents I'd want to see him fight in a comeback match.

I hate to say it because he's one of the most exciting and one of my favorite heavyweights. Not to mention he doesn't deserve to take any more beatings with his health issues.

But if they really want him to look good right off the bat I'd probably give him Struve who hasn't looked the same since his health scare. I'd hate to see him brutally KO Struve but it'd be a good way to put him back in the mix right away afterwards.
