UFC Quick Quote: Brendan Schaub has a couple more guys he needs to beat before he gets a title shot

"Let's not get crazy here. If he wins on Saturday night that would be huge. It's a big fight for his record but he's got a couple more guys he'd need to beat before he got a title shot."

-- UFC heavyweight Brendan Schaub has been telling anyone who will listen that if he defeats Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira tomorrow night (Aug. 27, 2011) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil at UFC 134, he will make his case for a title shot to the powers that be. Well, the powers that be have officially shot that down before "The Hybrid" even enters the cage. Company President Dana White told that the surging heavyweight knockout hound will need to defeat at least a couple more top guys before he gets his shot at gold. Is that fair? Or will Schaub have earned his chance at the division crown with an impressive win over Nogueira? Opinions, please.
