Brendan Schaub plans to prove that he's one of the best heavyweight strikers in UFC, as he faces Big Nog at UFC 134.

This Saturday, will face another legend in at . Whether this seemingly well-planned climb to the summit is a result of winning four straight bouts, or his own doing, or both, fans can say that he’s way ahead of — the fighter who knocked him out at TUF 10.

According to Brendan Schaub, nobody wants to fight Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira so he volunteered. He reasoned that if he lost, it was because he was too green. But could be another legend on his bag in case he comes out victorious this Saturday. Enthusiasts couldn’t blame Brendan Schaub for playing the game, since the distance between the middle of the heavyweight division and its top class is still relatively short. Moreover, he is in better position with his good wins and old school self-promotion.

Brendan Schaub hopes that Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira would be the last bullet in his list to point out why he deserves a title shot. Regardless, he plans on making a statement by slugging it out with Big Nog.

“I really pride myself on being one of the best strikers in the UFC, especially the UFC heavyweight division. It’s something I have to go out there and prove time after time, and man, what a great way to prove it against guys like Gonzaga, ‘Cro Cop,’ and Nogueira.”
