UFC heavyweight “The Hybrid” Brendan Schaub (11-5-0) recently appeared on the Jason Ellis show and tagged himself as the man to return former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar (5-3-0) back to the UFC – if he ever returns.
Welcome back to The Crossfire.
It was an entertaining interview.
Schaub suffered a TKO loss to Travis Browne at UFC 181. UFC broadcaster Joe Rogan took him to task about his performance in that fight on his radio show.
Lesnar is currently in the WWE and is the heavyweight champion in the company. UFC president Dana White has hinted that he is open to Lesnar returning to the UFC if he’s interested.
Health issues hastened Lesnar’s first run with the company, He last fight was a TKO to Alistair Overeem back at UFC 141 in 2011.
THE CROSSFIRE’S TAKE: Talking up Lesnar is a great way for Schaub to keep his name relevant. An impressive win over Lesnar would turn around his current misfortunes.
