UFC heavyweight Brendan Schaub is not happy with the MMA media for using his exact quotes. Schaub, while on Joe Rogan’s ‘Fighter Companion’ podcast, talked about his former fling Ronda Rousey, saying that:
“Believe me, I did her a favor man. I’m not the guy for the job. I’m just not. I’m too much (of a man). She needs a guy who’s gonna take a backseat. That’s not me. She also needs a guy that’s gonna say ‘yes ma’am, yes ma’am’. She’s so successful, she’s surrounded by people that worship her and go ‘yes, yes, that’s a great idea’. But when I said ‘I don’t think that’s a good idea,’ now I’m a hater. I have no financial gain from you. I don’t need anything from you, I’ve earned everything myself.”
So, apparently he didn’t say this (above) and is upset that the media ‘twisted his words’ saying that he’s too much man for her.
Here’s what he said on the most recent episode of his own podcast:
“I’m a huge Ronda Rousey supporter. I love that girl. I’ll defend her to the death. I always do. Too much man? I would never say that. I’m a guy who watches romantic comedies, I like pop culture. I read some books, I drink coffee. I’m not that manly.”
“Right before we went on the air, I said every MMA journalist is watching the Fight Companion with their pen and pad out going, ‘Please say something. Dear God, please something about Ronda. She’s so hot right now, please say something about Ronda.’ Hey TMZ, relax. This is what’s wrong with mixed martial arts. Journalists, you need to listen: when you post this stuff, when you credit TMZ as a reliable source, man, that sets our sport back. Do you see NFL breaking news on TMZ? When you do this stuff and you twist people’s words, it’s not good man. You’re setting the sport back.”
