"When they were asking people to fight, no one said anything. Then when the fight got confirmed, it was like, 'I wish I had that fight.' Yeah, you weren't saying that before. I'm not OCD about it, but I definitely set goals, and I'm smart about my future, that's for sure. 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 it."
-- In a division that will feature Cain Velasquez vs. Junior dos Santos fighting over the heavyweight championship, and Alistair Overeem apparently on the verge of busting down the door, is Brendan Schaub anywhere near a title shot? He believes a win over Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira at UFC 134 on Aug. 27 would earn him the opportunity. His argument (via SI.com) is simple: A victory would mean he's won five in a row, at least three of those being finishes, in a somewhat shallow weight class and he will have done so in "Big Nog's" backyard in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. That sound like a championship resume to you?
