The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finalist Brendan Schaub talked to Larry Pepe of Pro MMA Radio about his upcoming fight against Chris Tuchscherer, which is set to take place on Spike TV's UFC 116 "Prelims Live" broadcast before the event goes live on pay-per-view. Schaub feels as though his advantages in the speed and cardio departments are what is going to be the deciding factor in this fight. Schaub will probably be 15-20 pounds smaller than Tuchscherer going into the fight.

This should be a good fight and I happy we get to see it on the prelims. I actually think Chris may be able to pull this one off and he's much better then the underdog many are considering him as.

Tuscherer is supposed to be strong as an ox and hard to hold down. That's coming from Brock Lesnar so you know it's legit. I think Schaub better use speed because if Tuscherer gets a hold of him he could put a gorilla stomp on his ass quick.

I think this fight is a toss up for sure. i agree that Tuscherer is much better then the underdog status he is getting. If he gets Schaub on the ground he will grind him to a decision win I think. Schaub will have to use good takedown defense and pepper Tuscherer in the standup game with his speed and precision.

In a close fight I will take Schaub by UD.

I have Chris in this fight. He trained with Brock and Randy leading up to this fight. That's some pretty hefty weapons to have in your arsenal. Despite the fact that Brock is still relatively green (in the grand scheme of things) his wrestling is EXTREMELY good. Let's see how Minnesota MMA game-planned for this fight.

I'll take Chris in this one all day every day. I don't think it's gonna be pretty, and it may not be very entertaining, but Chris should win. Takedowns and GnP all day.
