Schaub says he's going to bring a battle to Rothwell's doorstep:
These guys know when they fight me, it's going to be one hell of a fight. I expect the best Ben Rothwell. And I know it's cliche to say and everyone says, 'Oh, that's something fighters say all the time,' but when I say it, it's obviously true. The previous guys he's fought, when they rocked Ben, they don't have the cardio, they rock Ben, they use it as a way to recover themselves.
I'm not like that. It's going to be 15 minutes of me in his face. I can do it all. You want to strike? Let's do that. It's going to be a short night, though. I think if you have to list a top three toughest guys in the heavyweight division, he's right up there. Everyone's tough in the UFC but he's a different caliber of tough. But just being tough isn't going to get you the belt.
I guarantee people walk away from this fight talking about my performance rather than the main event or anyone else on the card.
I had no idea that Rothwell was still in the UFC. Seriously. He's 1-2 during his UFC tenure and has never looked to be much more than merely passable as a heavyweight fighter. This fight should be his last one in the UFC.
This is a gimme fight for Schaub—a way for him to get an easy win after losing his momentum against Nogueira—and I fully expect him to capitalize.
