Brendan Schaub shoots down Amanda Nunes vs. Julianna Pena trilogy fight: “This wasn’t competitive”

Brendan Schaub believes the UFC light heavyweight title will be passed around like a doobie at a Snoop Dogg concert going forward: “You’re not getting another Jon Jones”

Brendan Schaub does not believe there will be another champion as dominant as Jon Jones in his lifetime at light heavyweight in the UFC.

Brendan Schaub Says MMA Judges Should Not Sit Cageside

Brendan Schaub has called for a change in MMA judging, again. Every single week there is a horrible split or unanimous decision. It has become a weekly thing, and there is no fix in sight. This past weekend Holly Holm lost a split decision in the main event of UFC Vegas 55, in which 18 out of 20 media outlets scored the bout as a win for Holm. Four fights prior, Eryk Anders lost a controversial split decision to Jun Yong Park, in which a majority of the media scored for Anders.
