"I'm 245 pounds, so I'm a smaller heavyweight. My biggest asset is my cardio and speed. I think my teammates would agree with that. I don't think there are many heavyweights that can keep up with my the pace... Chris' biggest asset is his wrestling. That's how he gets his wins. He likes to take guys down and pound them out or grind out a decision. Obviously he'll be coming in looking to take me down, but he's gonna be pretty surprised to find I'm not easy to take down. But even if the fight goes to the ground, one of my strengths is fighting off my back. I'm comfortable down there. I don't think he'll be ready for that."

The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 10 Finalist Brendan Schaub talked to Larry Pepe of Pro MMA Radio about his upcoming fight against Chris Tuchscherer, which is set to take place on Spike TV's UFC 116 "Prelims Live" broadcast before the event goes live on pay-per-view. Schaub feels as though his advantages in the speed and cardio departments are what is going to be the deciding factor in this fight. Do you agree? Will Schaub be too explosive for Tuchscherer to handle? Or, will Chris' size and wrestling advantages lead him to victory on July 3? Discuss.
