The Ultimate Fighter 10 vet Brendan Schaub is fresh off an impressive UFC 116 win over Chris Tuchscherer and now the heavyweight up and comer feels he is ready for a step up in competition:
"I think I took a step ahead of the rest of those [up-and-comers] beating a guy like Tuchscherer," Schaub said. "If you look at the other up-and-comers, ... they're fighting guys (that are) not as experienced. I think I'd definitely be ready for a (Mirko) 'Cro Cop' (Filipovic) or a Gilbert Yvel. I won't call anyone out, but if Joe Silva calls me, I'm ready for whatever he wants to throw my way."
