After the details of the UFC/Reebok deal payout was released, many fighters voiced their opinions on the matter. Schaub was among them and mentioned that he usually earns $100,000 in sponsorships while fighting for the UFC and he would be losing a great deal of money due to the Reebok deal.
UFC President Dana White went off in a recent interview criticizing Schaub’s claims that he made that much money while mockingly reading off a list of his sponsorships— or what he thought were his sponsorships.
On a recent edition of “The Joe Rogan Experience”, Schaub mentioned that the list Dana read wasn’t even a collection of his sponsors. Rogan responded that the two are now in a pissing contest, and Schaub needs to pee back.
“You’re in a pissing contest. He pissed on you. I saw him on that Landsberg show. He basically pulled his d**k out and peed all over you.”
Rogan went on to suggest that Schaub fought back and responded to White by sending him the proof that he did, in fact, make $100,000 for his last fight. Schaub showed Rogan the papers. “If somebody called me a liar, I would release the papers. If I knew that I had everything on paper that would show that I wasn’t a liar. It doesn’t make sense to call you a liar,” Rogan said to Schaub. “It makes sense to ask you what you were getting paid and then, ‘Well, can you send me that?’ That’s like a rational conversation. It gets irrational when someone calls you a liar when you know you’re not a liar and you do have the tax returns. The rational response to that is to just show.”
“I don’t know if he actually knew how much money guys like you who are very clever with your marketing and really good at promoting yourself how much they were making. He obviously didn’t talk to you about it, so how could he know?”
Should Brendan Schaub piss back, or should he take the high road and go along with the Reebok journey?
