Brendan Schaub recently appeared on Joe Rogan’s podcast and said that he thinks his next opponent made a mistake by switching camps.
Schaub is scheduled to take on Travis Browne December 6 at UFC 181. After losing a match to Fabicio Werdum in April, Browne decided to leave Greg Jackson’s camp (where Jon Jones and Alistair Overeem both also train) and begin working with women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey’s coach, Edmond Tarverdyan.
“It can be good,” said Schaub. “Listen, I came to [Los Angeles] and switched things up. Obviously, I know Ronda very well and I know that camp pretty well. I’m not going to go into detail but I think it’s a great thing for me that he’s training there. I’ll put it like that. I think it’s a good thing for me.”
Rogan said that Schaub on the comment, arguing he would have replied the same way ‘even if he didn’t mean it.’
“I promise I wouldn’t,” said Schaub. “I just wouldn’t say s**t. I’m 100 percent, dead serious.”
When Eddie Bravo followed up and asked Schaub if he believed Browne made a mistake by joining Tarverdyan, Schaub simply replied, “100 percent.”
“I don’t give a f**k. I’m not worried about him. I’m worried about me.”
