Brendan Schaub: Training to Defeat Matt Mitrione
UFC heavyweight Brendan Schaub has to fight a friend in his next bout, but that doesn't mean he's going to go easy on his old buddy Matt Mitrione.
Schaub and Mitrione were both cast members on The Ultimate Fighter season 10 and have remained good friends since the show ended.
So when UFC matchmaker Joe Silva came calling to pair the two heavyweights together for a fight at UFC on Fox 8, both accepted the bout and promised fireworks, even though it was a tough decision to make.
"It is a business of entertainment. I love Matt, Matt knows this, I wish I could fight any other heavyweight, but you just can't," Schaub told Bleacher Report. "One thing I can guarantee is Matt and I will put on a show."
In the interview, Schaub talks about his upcoming grappling superfight, the controversy surrounding his strategy to beat Lavar Johnson and an interesting note about the recent comments made by Mitrione towards transgender fighter Fallon Fox.
Schaub even offered to have Fox come train with him as he prepares for the fight against Mitrione.
"Matt's a fan favorite too, it might have went down a little bit with his last comments (about Fallon Fox)," Schaub said. "I'm going to throw an offer to (Fallon Fox). If you want to help me get Matt Mitrione back, open invitation to come train. Help me out."
