This has been going on for a while now, with UFC heavyweight Brendan Schaub talking about possibly retiring, but not officially retiring, but basically saying that he’s not going to fight anymore and on and on.
Well, here’s the latest.
Schaub went on Joe Rogan’s podcast on Friday night and again said that he doesn’t see himself fighting anymore, for several reasons. He isn’t down with Reebok, he has lots of other opportunities going on and he just doesn’t have the time to train.
But, he still threw in some statements that left the door open for a possible, although highly unlikely, return to the octagon.
Here’s some of what he said:
“Do I want one more? F*ck yes, man. But it just doesn’t make sense. I can’t see myself, when it comes down to this, I can’t see myself in a f*cking Reebok kit walking out to that Octagon. I can’t see myself being like, ‘You know what? Cool, man. Yeah, that’s what I’m worth. I’m worth 10-grand to you guys. I’m gonna do this.’ And I have other opportunities.”
“I’ll always still watch every fight. Who knows what happens in the future, but for right now there’s no way. They can offer me anybody and there’s no way. There’s no way I can put all this on hold and be like, let me go take this fight.”
