Episode 310: Brendan Schaub: "You're picking against Izzy? Y'all must have forgot"
Brendan breaks down the most recent UFC fight night and then previews this Saturday’s star studded UFC 281 card including Israel Adesanya vs Alex Pereira and why he believes it would be disastrous for the division if Alex were to win, Dustin Poirier vs Michael Chandler and why he won’t make an official pick between the two, Weili Zhang vs Carla Esparza and why if you’re a Rose Namajunas fan you should be rooting for Weili, Frankie Edgar’s retirement fight against Chris Gutierrez and why if you’re not rooting for Edgar you can’t call yourself an American, and Dan Hooker vs Claudio Puelles and why everything’s on the line for Hooker this fight. He also speculates on the betting controversy surrounding Darrick Minner and Shayilan Nuerdanbieke and the potential involvement of Darrick’s coach James Krause, does a deep dive on Mark Hunt’s career in the wake of his boxing victory over previously undefeated Sonny Bill Williams who is 11 years Mark’s junior, and makes the case for why Hunt is in fact the biggest gangster in all of MMA. Finally he responds to Jake Paul's justification for the lower than expected PPV numbers for his Anderson Silva fight, Paolo Costa calling out Jake Paul, and Polyana Viana's salacious claims about Colby Covington.
