Hey guys,

I interviewed Brendan Schaub a few days ago. Here's some selected quotes:

(You can check out the full thing here)

Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira stated in one of his recent interviews that he will submit you. What can you say about such statement?
That's part of the game. He's confident in his Jiu-Jitsu and he should be.  He's one of the best in the world with Jiu-Jitsu, so in my opinion, there's no disrespect in anything he said. I'm very confident with my boxing, and he's confident in his grappling. So we'll see how it plays out and who's a tougher fighter.

There are rumors about Alistair Overeem signing with the UFC. What do you think about him as a fighter, and perhaps as one of your future opponents?
You know, I think Overeem is a Top 5 Heavyweight in the World, right behind Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos. He's been doing it for a while, so I think Alistair Overeem is a very good addition to the roster. But at the same time, there are so many great fighters in the UFC... he will have to work hard if he wants to stay on top.

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

If he gets past Nog, which unfortunately I think he can, I would love to see him against Brock !!

Brock vs Slob
Mir vs Reem

he might just do it.

Guy has some talent

and Nog is on the ass end of a great career. I just hate seeing the new breed making names for themselves beating up on former shells of legends.

Maybe start calling out people in their prime. I hope Nog sub's this guy in the first and humbles him. Phone Post

It's rumored that in his post fight interview, he's going to call out Mark Coleman.

I'd be surprised if he doesnt KO him in the first.

He's way too good for Nogueira.

What is worse - Schaub calling out old, broken down fighters or the UFC granting his wish?

Sadly, it will look more like this:

So you're saying he's not good enough to beat him? And soundly at that?

Is it me or is Schaub's ego disproportionally big? He's really making it sound like this battle-worn, aging, cage rusted, chin diminished Nog is the same fighter that was once the greateast HW in the world, and that he deserves to be lauded as a threat to the title if he win.

Personally, I've picked Schaub to beat Gonzaga, Cro Cop, and now Nog, and I don't think he's half as good as he thinks he is. All three of those guys just were too beat up and battle worn for a young, skilled fighter.

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.

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.
