    Brendan schaub might be the most hated man in mma. I know he was disliked a little during tuf for being a cocky nfl guy, but it wasn’t this bad. After realizing that he’s basically sherdogs walking toilet, I had to figure out wtf happened. I mean I’ve never seen a dude so hated that that even Dana haters can’t get behind him during that beef.

    Then it hit me, knocking out old cro cop and celebrating how he did was the first domino. Then all the shit he talked during the build
    Up to the nog fight was the last nail in the coffin. I think that the moment nog knocked him the fuck out, cemented his status as the most hated man in MMA. I’m not even really a Schaub hater and seeing him talk about knocking nog out in Brazil how he was rubbed me the wrong way. That was one of the best moments in mma where everyone in the world was cheering for the same guy.

    What do you guys think, was it his encounters with mma legends and beloved sons, cro cop and big nog the downfall of Schaub.

    Yes, this is much more relevant to the UFC than actual current wmma.

    Schuab’s paper mache chin and inability to fight good ruined Schuab.

    Not a big Schaub fan, but he didn't seem any more hated to me than any other fighter (Woodley excluded), but I am not a big consumer of MMA media other than the fights themselves. Contrary to the title's implication that Schaub is somehow "ruined"...I'm seeing him as having used MMA to launch into one of the most succesful post-athletic careers ever invented by a retired athlete.

    I thought BS beat Arlovski, albeit the fight sucked ass
    He didn't look all that bad vs. Browne until the stoppage

    He could of had a longer journeyman career but I guess he was tired of getting KTFO

    He's successful without being particularly good at anything other than over using a gay shtick.

    That's bound to generate some critics.

    His voice and the things he says and the way he says them is why he gets grief

    It's the same reason you don't see a movie called Robin. Everybody cares about Batman (Rogan). Nobody really cares about his sidekick Robin. If Robin was an MMA fighter with no heart and a weak chin then so be it. The highlight of his fighting career for me was when Kimbo thought he was black in TUF. He had some moments in the UFC and he'll have them in comedy. I'm happy for him for his success but i'm not buying in nor have I ever have. Some people don't like Batman (Rogan). He is not my favorite comedian but I like him as an announcer. As far as Robin (Schaub) the thing I like and respect about him is that he doesn't back down from Dana. Kudos to him for speaking out against Reebok and in favor of fighters. He's consistent about that and there are very few people in the world willing to stand up to the Dana's of the world. Good for him!

    He Knocked out Cro Cop, then CALLED OUT Noguiera. He went after old, washed up big name fighters. Only problem is one of them was Antonio Minotauro Fucking Noguiera.

    Lmao damn I didn’t realize he called him out. I just remember how serious the look on his face was when he was talking pre fight. “I don’t know what the fans expect man, they think nog is gonna win and it’s gonna be a big party. That’s not gonna happen man I’m gonna knock him out and get the on a plane and leave Brazil. Then nog hit him with that reality check lmfao. There was a cool guile theme video on it. If anyone has it that would be cool to see.

    Yeah hunting legends isn’t a good way to win over fans. And as far as ruin I just meant I regards to how sherdog views him. He’s stupid successful in everything he does after fighting. I don’t really mind him too much. The only thing I didn’t like was him saying Conor could beat Floyd. Such a big name in mma makes us look dumb. Real fans knew he had no chance though

    People throw the word "hate" around too much. I dont think there are many people who actually hate hate him. I think the reason why people dislike him is becouse he represents someone who made it big with mediocre talent becouse of nepotism. I dont care either way but i think thats closer to the truth

    Most of the vitriol towards Schaub is rooted in envy and jealousy. He’s of very average intelligence, yet has succeeded in many lucrative endeavors. A lot of sherdoggers want better lives for themselves and feel slighted seeing someone who they feel hasn’t worked hard enough for what they have attained.

    Also he’s a god awful comedian.

    I’d blame Hollyweird, and his insatiable hunger for fame.

    But, at the same time, let your freak flag fly if you got one (likely what Rogan told him).

    He’s realized it’s not worth following the crowd, he’s living his best life now.
