Schaub: I will KO Nogueira in 2nd round


In our interview prior to the fight with Mirko Cro Cop, you spoke about being two fights away from a title shot..

If I get a good "W" I think I'll be next in line for a title shot. Look, going out there to Brazil and beat Nogueira in his homeland is something that Cain, Frank Mir or Fedor never did. So yeah, I think that beating Nogueira in Brazil makes a pretty good argument for a title shot, not speaking about the fact that it's going to be my fifth consecutive victory.

What's your prediction for August 27th?

I think Nogueira will have a tough time dealing with my speed. I'll knock him out in Round 2

Nog is as shot as Wanderlei if not more so. He's like a walking zombie whereas Wanderlei can at least still move around a bit.

I'm in favor of that. Only problem is that he'd likely get a nice fat contract prior to his title shot. He shouldn't be getting paid big bucks until he beats some guys in their prime.

Honestly I'm relieved to see so many people calling Schaub out; I've been irate about this match-up since the begining. Schaub's trying to pad his resume with names of men who've been through too many wars to keep up. I originally played along with Gonzaga, but watching him cheap shot Cro Cop then call out Nog is a mockery.....You know what: if he wins give him the title shot. Let's see him deal with a top HW in his prime.
