    I ve watched Joe Rogans YT channel and in one video he spoke with Schaub about his fight with Cro Cop.

    Even tho he won that fight with KO, he admited that , that fight changed his life.

    His face was smashed and he had many injuries so he became adicted to painkillers and had very hard and long recovery phase.
    Even tho he was relative young he ended his career, just few fight after this mentioned fight.


    So this fight was a bad choice for him at the time and he paid because of his cockyness - cro cop still fights .


    DO YOU HAVE ANY SIMILAR EXAMPLE WHERE FIGHT CHANGE FIGHTERS' LIFE AND CAREER.


    In a recent Mcgregor Aldo is good example too

    Dillashaw Barao is a pretty good example of someone going on a downward spiral after being dominant. Dude was on a huge winstreak, then TJ beat him and now he's losing to randoms, maybe ending up getting cut from the roster.

    Weidman is heading in that direction since the Rockhold fight.

    Seriously, she went from MMA and UFC postergirl to looking like she never trained striking a day in her life. After that, she dropped to a level where a random soccer mum would have done the same against Nunes.

    GSP after Serra, but in a different way. It made him so calculated and methodical with his approach and execution of his game plan.
