UFC Quick Quote: Brendan Schaub admits to training under the influence of Tim Tebow

NFL quarterback Tim Tebow greets a fan. - Jake Roth-US PRESSWIRE

How does UFC heavyweight Brendan Schaub stay positive? He surrounds himself with positive influences, like former Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow. Don't hate.

"For me I just stay positive; it's part of the game. I've been competing all my life. The most successful people in the world when they do have a setback they don't look back, the just move forward. For me that's the plan. [Tim Tebow is] a very good friend, been a good friend for a couple of years now, and me and him workout a lot together and text and call each other all the time. He's a very positive guy, very similar to me. You are who you surround yourself with and me and Tim are kind of the same in terms of work ethic and the way we go about life. I surround myself with guys who are pretty successful, good people, and I think the two biggest influences in my life lately have been Tim Tebow and Ryron Gracie. Ryron's a positive guy, and Tim's super positive. For me being around that, it just shows me I'm on the right track."

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight Brendan Schaub, who knows a thing or two about major setbacks after a couple of high-profile losses, tells MMA Weekly he's not going to have a negative outlook on his life or his career. But how does "The Hybrid" stay so positive, even when facing disappointment like he did last week after Lavar Johnson torpedoed their UFC on FOX 5 bout in Seattle? He surrounds himself with like-minded people, including New York Jets back-up quarterback Tim Tebow (see it here), who cut his teeth in Schaub's hometown of Denver prior to moving to "The Big Apple." With all the drama that surrounds the "bad boys" of mixed martial arts (MMA), it's nice to get some straight-edge superstars every once in awhile. Anyone disagree?
