UFC 134: Brendan Schaub Hopes to Earn Title Shot with Win Over Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira

Brendan SchaubBrendan Schaub is looking to make a statement when he meets Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira on Saturday at UFC 134 with hopes that his fifth-straight UFC win would earn him a shot at the heavyweight title.

“I’m not OCD about it, but I definitely set goals, and I’m smart about my future, that’s for sure,” Schaub recently told

“That would be five wins straight. If I can beat Nogueira convincingly in his own backyard, I think you look at the layout of the heavyweight division, and I’ve got a good argument for [a title shot].”

Who Schaub could potentially face for the title won’t be decided until November, when heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez is scheduled to make his first title defense against Junior dos Santos at UFC 139.
