Were they ever friends?
UFC Fighter Brendan Schaub, UFC Fighter Chuck Liddell, UFC Fighter Matt Serra and UFC President Dana White attend the premiere of ''UFC Undisputed 2010'' at M2 Ultra Lounge on March 25, 2010 in New York City.
UFC heavyweight contender Brendan Schaub, who scored back-to-back wins following a recent two-fight skid, has re-upped with the UFC with a new six-fight deal.
Schaub recently announced the deal via Twitter, which included a picture of UFC President Dana White. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Schaub (10-3 MMA, 6-3 UFC), an honorable mention in the USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie.com MMA heavyweight rankings, most recently scored a first-round submission victory over Matt Mitrione at UFC 165. It marked his eighth stoppage in 10 career wins and gave him a 67 percent UFC win rate.
Schaub, a former pro football player, first entered the UFC after a runner-up finish on “The Ultimate Fighter 10,” the highest rated season of the UFC’s long-running reality series. Following a loss to Roy Nelson in the show’s tournament final, the 30-year-old won his next four UFC fights, which included knockouts of Chase Gormley, Chris Tuchscherer and Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic.
