It has been a long time coming, but after months of speculation in the MMA world, Brendan “Big Brown” Schaub has announced he is quitting the UFC. The news comes as he can be heard publicly voicing his disapproval at the Reebok deal reducing his earning per fight significantly and the risk of carrying serious traumatic brain injury into his post fight life.

The sequence of events folded shortly after his loss to Andrei Arlovski and Travis Browne during 2014. It wasn’t until an uncomfortable talking to from Joe Rogan during a live podcast that Brendan started to doubt his future in the UFC. When the Reebok deal came in, it was the straw that broke the camels back! It looks like we will still be seeing Big Brown on a variety of podcasts and live shows with his co-host Bryan Callen. Good luck Brendan!

Here is the original very awkward podcast where Joe encourages Brendan to rethink his career.

Here is the initial announcement during Joe’s Fight Companion podcast.

And finally here is a deeper explanation on his very own podcast The Fighter and The Kid.
