Schaub: 'I can beat any heavweight'

by Trent Reinsmith | source:

Schaub advanced his record to 8-1 with the victory over Cro Cop and is very close to breaking into the top 10 rankings.

Schaub, recently spoke to MMA:30, telling them, "I think I can beat anyone in the heavyweight division, I can hang with any of those guys."

One of the fights that Schaub would welcome would be against Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira on the upcoming UFC card in Brazil. "It would be an honor to fight 'Big Nog' in Brazil," Schaub said. "It would be hostile territory, I think there going to have a (hard) time finding someone to fight him. For me, that would be a great opportunity and a third legend in a row."

Schaub has potential. He really has to work on his head movement. 3 big KO losses in the UFC though. He has to fight smarter or he won't be fighting long.

Schaub / Herman actually sounds like a pretty good matchup.

i disliked schaub from the begining because of his attitude and him calling out old legends and his cheap back of the head shots against cro cop but he's been ko'd a few times by guys he shouldn't have and is getting shittted on by everyone so i kind of feel bad for him now. Zuffa should give him someone like pee wee herman so he doesn't get ko'd again.

I'm pretty sure Schaub wants none of Mir especially after getting romped by Old Nog
