On the latest episode of Joe Rogan’s MMA Show podcast, he had UFC hall of famer Yves Edwards on where he discussed his beef with Brendan Schaub. Schaub recently put out a statement trashing Fox and UFC Tonight for having an all black panel on during their broadcast. He insinuated racism and claimed it was because affirmative action and the guys weren’t qualified to be there despite not being in the hall of fame himself like Yves Edwards who was on that night or being a UFC champion like Tyron Woodley who was also on that night.

Brendan Peter Schaub (born March 18, 1983) is an American comedian, actor, television host, commentator, former collegiate football player, and retired mixed martial artist. He was a finalist and the runner-up of Spike TV’s The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights. He co-hosts The Fighter and the Kid, a bi-weekly podcast with comedian Bryan Callen, as well as his own podcast Below The Belt. He also serves as a commentator and co-host for E! Entertainment red carpet events.
Schaub rebounded from his loss to Nelson with a 47-second technical knockout (TKO) win over Chase Gormley at UFC Live: Vera vs. Jones. Schaub next fought Chris Tuchscherer, the main training partner for former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar, at UFC 116. Once again, Schaub won the bout via a first-round KO. Schaub made his main card debut at UFC 121 in Anaheim, California on October 23, 2010 against former UFC heavyweight title challenger, Gabriel Gonzaga. For the first time in Schaub’s career, the fight continued past the first round, going the full distance to a unanimous decision (30–27, 30–27, and 30–27) victory for Schaub.
Schaub had expressed interest in fighting Frank Mir or Mirko Cro Cop in his next fight and a fight against Mir was tentatively booked for UFC 128 on March 19, 2011. However, Schaub instead faced Cro Cop at the event, a day after his 28th birthday. Schaub won the Knockout of the Night award with a third-round KO following a well-placed counter-punch, compiling a four-fight win streak. On August 27, 2011 at UFC 134, Schaub lost to Antônio Rodrigo Nogueira via KO (punches) in the first round. He lost his second straight fight, also via KO (punches), to Ben Rothwell on April 21, 2012 at UFC 145.
Schaub was expected to face Lavar Johnson on December 8, 2012 at UFC on Fox 5. However, Johnson was forced out of the bout with a groin injury and Schaub was pulled from the card as well. Schaub fought Johnson on February 23, 2013 at UFC 157. He controlled Johnson with his wrestling on the ground for most of all three rounds and won a unanimous decision (30–27, 30–27, and 30–27). Johnson tested positive for elevated testosterone in a post-fight drug test.
