"I think it's good to control your own destiny. I just throw a name out there. He's had three fights in the UFC and two Knockouts of the Nights. His sole loss is to Struve. I think people are scared of him. I think it'd be a good fight. Lavar hits hard. For me, yeah people say I have a weak chin, so this would solidify my place. But I fight at heavyweight. Everyone hits hard."
-- Three Octagon losses in a row is almost a guaranteed serving of walking papers if you work for Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). Thus, Heavyweight Brendan Schaub will be under immense pressure when he fights heavy-hitting Lavar Johnson at UFC on FOX 5 in Seattle, Wash., on Dec. 8, 2012, as he looks to avoid his third straight loss in the eight-walled cage. It's a "big" match up for "The Hybrid," but it's one that he wanted. Indeed, Schaub has never been one to shy away from calling out his opponents, telling FUEL TV's "UFC Tonight" during a recent sitdown. He believes this match up will not only give him an opportunity to get back on the "win wagon," but it will also allow him to show his haters that he doesn't have a weak chin, a sentiment that came under the magnifying glass after he lost his last two fights via first round knockouts. Just remember, be careful what you ask for, Brendan.
