UFC Quick Quote: Brendan Schaub hopes to earn title shot with win over Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira

Photo
 

"When they were asking people to fight, no one said anything. Then when the fight got confirmed, it was like, 'I wish I had that fight.' Yeah, you weren't saying that before. I'm not OCD about it, but I definitely set goals, and I'm smart about my future, that's for sure. That would be five wins straight. If I can beat Nogueira convincingly in his own backyard, I think you look at the layout of the heavyweight division, and I've got a good argument for it."

-- In a division that will feature Cain Velasquez vs. Junior dos Santos fighting over the heavyweight championship, and Alistair Overeem apparently on the verge of busting down the door, is Brendan Schaub anywhere near a title shot? He believes a win over Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira at UFC 134 on Aug. 27 would earn him the opportunity. His argument (via SI.com) is simple: A victory would mean he's won five in a row, at least three of those being finishes, in a somewhat shallow weight class and he will have done so in "Big Nog's" backyard in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. That sound like a championship resume to you?

Justinmacd - I guess he must've had some brain damage after getting KO'd by Big Country.

Still needs to beat Mir after this one.

Any of the current true heavyweight contenders (Velasquez, Dos Santos, Lesnar, etc) would chew up Schaub, spit him out, shit on him and walk away without breaking a sweat.

IF he beats Nog, then he needs 1 more win before even TALKING about a title shot.

and I am a fan of his!

Lol - this guy can't get past Nelson and he wants a title shot because he beats a few fighters in the twilight of their careers? Time to wake up Schaub. This guy... Sheesh! Phone Post

 How many times is he going to say this? He hasn't got enough fans to talk his way into a shot and he definitely hasn't done enough in the octagon. Would love to see Nog choke him out and shut him up...... At least while hes unconscious

Schaub should fight an actual top contender in the HW division, like Mir or someone like that. Cro Cop, Gonzaga, Tuscherer, and Gomley are not top HW contenders.

I have no respect for calling out guys passed their prime and trying to get an easy title shot. At the very least he should have to fight Brock or another contender from the last couple years before he gets the shot.

 No no no Brendan, not that easy lol.

Even if he beats Nog convincingly, Schaub still needs to fight and beat a top HW contender or two before any consideration for a title shot. And anyone at the top of that HW ladder would put Schaub down fairly easy.

HAHAHAHAHA!!!! A TITLE SHOT?! -___- I wanna see you beat Carwin, Brock, or Mir DECISIVELY, b4 you earn a title shot...Defeating Big Nog just means you're almost read for the big boys, then again you got knocked out cold by Big Country.....Brendan has skills, but tack on a top contender win and then expect s shot....

 I dont think he gets an automatic title shot no matter how impressive the win is.  I do think Schaub vs. Dos Santos would be a great fight though. If JDS beats Cain of course.
