Brendan Schaub says he helped Brazilian jiu-jitsu after his match at Metamoris

Brendan Schaub says he helped Brazilian jiu-jitsu after his match at Metamoris

Ah it’s weigh-in day. The day when the fighters march grumpily on the scales and look a bit disoriented while knowing that all their hopes and dreams of the last month hang on a fifteen or twenty-five minute match tomorrow.

It’s also the day when Ariel Helwani releases his entire batch of exclusive one-on-one interviews in which he poses questions fighters just can’t help but answer appropriately.

In his pre-fight interview with the reporter who 'nose,' Schaub states that not only does he have no regrets concerning his Metamoris match—he actually claims that his 'shutting down' of Cyborg Abreu helped the grappling centric sport.

While he did bring fresh eyeballs to the competition, I’m not sure his performance actually helped it. I mean he didn’t exactly steamroll anyone, but hey at least Royce Gracie thought he won. I guess.

Anyways here’s the video, you know you want to here this man speak. Go to the 3:00 mark for the goods.

Schaub is a delusional scumbag and I hope the MMA gods bring down hellacious fury upon his chin once again

On "Glass Joe" Schaub's behalf, that other "fat" guy just rolled around like a freaken "weeble" the whole damn time. He should have gotten up and taken Schaub down and suplexed him, choked him out and broken both of his damn arms and showed us what Jiu Jitsu or however the hell you spell it, is all about.

It was an embarrassmnt and it wasn't all Schaubs fault. If some lopsided idiot was just rolling around like a freaken egg , making circles around me, I would have done the same damn thing. Schaub should have just soccer kicked the pig.

Does this make Kalib Starnes the man who singlehandedly resurrected MMA?

Schaub is so modest.
He did not help BJJ, he fucking put it to the next level.
Shut down a whole lot of haters as well.

Can you fighter bash on ME?

Anyway, for freak sake, this is the best fight this weekend! Why you ask? Because two of the least talented HWs are going at it and hopefully the loser gets his walking papers. I'm sure the other will follow along next year.

The WSOF is holding their breath....

Schaub is to Metamoris what sitting in a chair is to a dance contest.

For a journalism student, his grammar check sucks.
