presents: Afternoon Press Box with guest Brendan Schaub

During the mixed martial arts hour on Wednesday’s episode of AFTERNOON PRESS BOX on Sports Radio 560 WNSR, hosts Darren McFarland, Chris Pappas, Brad Hopkins and Ed Clay talked with UFC heavyweight Brendan Schaub, who will be facing MMA legend Mirko Cro Cop Saturday at UFC 128 LIVE on Pay-Per-View.

Schaub believes a win over Cro Cop will put him right up there with guys like Frank Mir and Big Nog, in the upper echelon of the UFC’s heavyweight division.

Schaub also weighed in with his opinion on teammates fighting one another, which has been a recent hot-button issue within the sport.

In addition to talking to Schaub, the guys discussed the Strikeforce sale, and previewed UFC 128, including the main event title fight between Jon “Bones” Jones and Mauricio “Shogun” Rua.
