Brendan Schaub: ‘A Win Over Nogueira Puts Me Right In The Number One Contender’s Spot’

Bold statement?

It’s the toughest test of my career. Nogueira’s as tough as they come, I think he’s the toughest heavyweight in the division. A win over him puts me right in the number one contender’s spot and I’m looking forward to the challenge.

      hahaha. true, but he’s gotten better since then. And, Nog, sadly, is not a top notch stepping stone anymore. Schaub, and ive said this before, has only been fighting people past their prime. Serious, no one he’s fought has been in their prime. Gonzaga, Cro Cop, Tuchecsherererchserscher, and Gormley (who never had a prime) and now he’s fighting another has-been. He’s is for a rude awakening after this fight. I say he wins this easily, Big Nog retires, and then he gets a top ranked opponent who will knock him the f**** out, just like nelson did.
