The day before, Brendan was all about “Representing the UFC” meaning he was “going for a finish”. Instead, he pretty much all but assured himself to be the last fighter allowed to go out and embarrass themselves and the UFC. Way to go Brendan.

Wow, landed side control with a few seconds left. That’s hilarious, what an uneventful match though.

I am sorry this sucked. I watched the first 10 minutes of this and for 7 minutes Roberto Abreu who is actually a JJ champion simply scooted around on his butt doing silly swimming techniques all over the floor. He could not take Shaub down so he resorted to childish games. To my dismay (maybe not knowing crap about this sport) the crowd was booing in my mind I thought ok at least they are with me this guy scooting on his ass is just getting silly and blatantly avoiding. Anyways fight goes on I was bored out my mind so I fast forwarded it the rest of the 10 minutes. Than the announcer is talking about how he feels Roberto brought the action more? I thought to myself “sure, sweet butt scooting action” but than to my dismay the judges announce butt scooting Roberto as the winner. Shocking. Maybe someone could explain why the butt scooting is worth more points than actually trying to grapple?

Lame, indeed!

Cyborg asked Schaub that if they fight again to please engage and come 100 percent. Shame. The event was serious until this guy played run from the opponent.

PowerTele Says, in 6-10-2013 at 14:46:10 from    

@Giantsilva-in jits comps the fighters directly engage and look for a submission. Schaub purposely avoided the clinch so Cyborg invited him in. He even gave hin full guard, control of his legs and opportunities to engage. Schaub should not enter a jits comp of he will not engage. This ai t cage fighting it is jits. Some matches went 20 mintues with no subs and the guys were on the ground clinched the entire time. Yes. In a cage fight Cyborg couldnt just lay there but in a jits comp Cyborg played Schaubs game and offered sumbission opportunities and Schaub did nothing.

I feel that it should’ve been a draw. The only aggressiveness Cyborg showed was his “butt scooting”. He wasn’t shooting or going for judo stuff. I train with Brendan and trust me he’s awesome. He just didn’t play Cyborgs game.

After watching this watching my grass grow does not seem so boring anymore especially if you have a cold Miller lite.

bad match but i dont fault brenden. its like im here, your awesome at subs, come try to sub me. and instead he just sat down and expected schaub to willingly climb atop him… reminds me of the simpsons bjj bit.

for Christ sake this is a jiu jitsu match , cyborg is giving him top positions.. if Brendan wanted bottom he should have sat his ass down, you got two options pick one.. he managed to embarrass himself and the UFC with those sad tactics.. way to go!

MMAgiantsilva Says, in 6-10-2013 at 17:22:30 from    

I hear you PowerTele and i admit I dont understand the rules of jiu jitsiu that well but in my eye’s if all you can do is butt scoot you are losing the fight / competition. Not to mention he looked like a complete idiot doing it. Also I feel if he can not get the competitor down to implement his game, no way does he deserve to win

@ MMAgiantsilva and JesseTheGreat

As awesome as Schaub may be. He is not awesome at jiu-jitsu. He clearly refused to engage. Standing, he backed away the whole time. On the ground, anytime they were in contact, he jumped up and ran away.
Cyborg on the other tried to engage. He could not take Schaub down, so invited him on the ground. He allowed Schaub to come in how ever he chose. Schaub refused to fight.
The one time Schaub actually tried something is the one time he was about to get tapped before the bell rang.

Schaub had no business in there. That Said High level BJJ players should have takedown ability for these situations…but they dont.

BigDaddyMMA Says, in 6-10-2013 at 19:41:34 from    

I don’t see how some people are saying Schaub embarrassed himself and the UFC. He is entering another champions territory and didn’t play his game.If I were Schaub, I would have made him take me down to, why would he dive into a dangerous BJJ champions guard when that’s what he wants. One problem with some BJJ guys is clearly exposed here. If you can’t take your man down then you can’t submit him. So instead of blaming Schaub for being smart, go work on your take downs, which is beginners wrestling 101.

Go watch the Mackenzie Dern vs Michelle Nicolini match. You’ll feel better afterwards. The countdown will have you drooling

ssrobbi Says, in 6-11-2013 at 02:54:22 from    

what exactly did schaub expect was going to happen? did he think cyborg would give him full mount?

skifri3 Says, in 6-11-2013 at 04:25:13 from    

Schaub has no business doing a jj tourney if he has no intention of engaging. All these people defending Schaub for not engaging an opponent who was better than him… if your plan is to avoid engagement then don’t compete.

Lack of competition doesn’t fly in any other sport, team or individual. Being aggressive isn’t a rule, but if one or both teams/individuals choose not to engage, then the crowd has every right to criticize.

Thanks Bruno!!! A lot better than ufc fuel 10

Thxer Says, in 6-11-2013 at 14:35:07 from    

If “he didn’t play his game” means he didn’t engage in a jiu jitsu match then yea, I guess I agree.

KungFuLowKick Says, in 6-11-2013 at 19:58:20 from    

WTF is Shwab doing??He said he wanted to test his skills…Then test them you F*** your in a BJJ competition.It’s like if a guy wanted to spar With a pro boxer,but would only run and cover up.Shwab is a good MMA fighter but come on,what do you have to lose?Just tap if he catches you.

KungFuLowKick Says, in 6-11-2013 at 20:04:13 from    

Being aggressive is not a rule,but not engaging is also a foul.I saw an amateur MMA fight where the guy just circled around and when they clinched he only disengaged.And I mean he didn’t threw a single strike.Maybe he was scared to get hit full blast because it was his 1st fight but he still got DQed for not wanting to engage.What Shwab did is almost like if a race car driver would just park himself and block the rest of the course for the drivers who really want to race.He should never have another BJJ competition if he doesn’t want to compete.

KungFuLowKick Says, in 6-11-2013 at 20:14:21 from    

BJJ guys do have takedown abilities.Look at Demian Maia vs Chael Sonnen,one of the best takedown ever and Maia at that time was 99% BBJ fighter.The problem here is that BJJ guys are used to grapple guys who actually want to grapple.You’re talking about Brendan “not wanting to play cyborg’s game”wich is BJJ.And they are in a BJJ match.Also Shwab’s only “advantage” to Cyborg is his takedowns and and strength.This isn’t a wrestling or a judo match,Cyborg doesn’t have to prove he’s the better takedown guy.Shwab should’ve been DQed.

You would’ve gotten more respect if you engaged, tried your best grappling and lost; than to do what you did.
