link In fact, with three consecutive wins in the UFC, Schaub wants to sustain his momentum and continue moving up the heavyweight ladder. The division, of course, got a shakeup in UFC 121's main event when Cain Velasquez made quick work of champion Brock Lesnar and took the title.
Wanting to be in the best position possible when the dust settles, Schaub already has a next opponent in mind. And it's a veteran who once held the title himself.
"I'd love to match up with Frank Mir," said Schaub, a former football player once employed in the NFL and AFL. "He's one of the stars in the division, and I think I would give him a lot of problems."

I would love to see this fight. I think it would be a good test for Schaub though I'd predict that it would be the end of his climb to the top.

Frank Mir prolly doesnt want to come off his high horse, prolly think schaub doesnt deserve to fight him or you know Mir is gunning for lesnar, now that lesnar lost.

but as long as frank loses, it's all good.

Lesnar has no one to fight right now besides big nog or mir

I would rather see schaub vs mir. Or give schaub mitrone or madsen next

Unless they want Lesnar to have a better shot of getting a win and they throw like Rothwell at him

Rotohwell is Carwin's meal next...so I doubt that will happen.

Carwin is fighting Roy Nelson, not Rothwell.

Anyway, I think that Mir would deal with him pretty easily. I am not a fan of Mir but he is a very well rounded fighter with a boatload of experience against the best in the world.

i like schaub, but Mir would submit him

you could tell Mir that fighting a grandmother would increase his chances of getting back to brock and he'd do it

I like Schaub, but I was not impressed by Gonzaga's performance, and think Schaubb should rematch Roy Nelson . I think once Mir can put all his new skills together with his old skills, and fight smart, He can make another title run.


Some prolly want Mir Lesnar 3, or Nog mir 2

but I want

Lesnar vs Nog
Roy vs Schaubb
Mir vs Gonzaga or Madsen (

Madsen looks like he has a case of backne- interested in drug tests from 121)

Roy vs Schaubb


Roy Nelson is already fighting Shane Carwin.
