    Yeah it was great to hear when he got invited to the show, after winning the Ring of Fire heavyweight crown.

    I was eagerly waiting for the premiere of this season, and Schaub had the best moment, IMO:

    When Dana White "introduces" Kimbo Slice as the surprise 16th fighter, every fighter's eyes get big, but the microphones catch Schaub saying "F--- him, f--- that guy". It was great because he kept his cool and still thought that he would outclass Kimbo (which I am certain he will if he gets the chance).

    The one thing in the article that is like salt in the wound:
    Schaub said former CU coach Gary Barnett helped shape his "combat" competitiveness.

    "I'm a Barnett guy," he said. "Playing football at CU, Barnett instilled toughness in us. That's one of the biggest things in fighting is your mental game, and it's huge in MMA."

    What have we been missing the last couple of seasons?

    Hmmmmmm, It would appear GB left an indelible mark at CU.
