    “Brendan, you fought in the UFC,” McCarthy said. “Congratulations, that was great. You had a couple of good fights. But I can point out fights that he had against guys that beat him that lost to guys outside of the UFC.

    [​IMG]

    “Back when [Schaub] was fighting, if they had brought Fedor Emelianenko over, because Brendan is a UFC fighter, he’s better than Fedor Emelianenko?” McCarthy continued. “He’s going to win? Does that make sense? You’re a UFC fighter, you’re better? It just doesn’t add up.”

    Everyone, including his buddy Rogan, is spreading propaganda against Schaub. In this case he is innocent, his only point was that he can't consider a fighter outside of the UFC as the best. He never claimed that Lima for example can't beat anyone on the UFC roster, it's a straw man.

    Lol. Nice straw man Big John!

    Brendan never said all UFC fighters would beat all bellator guys. He specially said some bellator guys would hang and be ranked.

    His quote of "if you're not in the UFC, you're not shit" was specifically in the context of saying that no one outside the UFC can logically claim "best in the world" because we haven't seen them against the same amount and quality of what you get in ranked UFC guys.

    In other words, Lima could claim all he wants that he's the best in the world, but since we haven't seen him beat the Colby's, RDA's, the Woodley's, etc, it will always be a claim in question. Whereas Usman can claim to be the best in the world.

    John McCarthy is extremely knowledgable, and spot on.

    If you think that just because a fighter is in the ufc that they are the absolute best fighter out there, you're an idiot. Especially in this day and age when the UFC seems more concerned about physical appearance and what you can say on a microphone.

    Imagine calling someone a idiot when you could not figure out how to post a pic of your "tv" last week. Ironic

    i personally cant stand BJM on the mic. i feel like he is about the most arrogant commentator ever. wish goldy would beat his ass next time he tries to correct him.
    bjm just tries to alpha the mic and act like his knowledge is law. he was the founder of mma rules and knows the most about mma.
    he is also a jitsu redbelt and striking savant
    he fucking triggers me.

    It’s greatly improved. Lima would expose Marty’s shit striking defense worse than pillow fisted Covington did

    Doesn't he work for Bellator?

    I listen to what he says most of the time. Just not this time.

    Schaub was right and Big John is purposely misconstruing him and arguing against a straw man. I like both guys.
