Former UFC fighter Brendan Schaub has been offered a surprising opportunity to make a comeback in MMA. Find out more about the potential matchup against Derrick Lewis.
Former heavyweight fighter Brendan Schaub, who retired from professional mixed martial arts in 2015, has been offered a surprising opportunity to make a comeback. Jorge Masvidal, a former UFC title challenger and promoter of Gamebred Fighting Championship, has extended an invitation to Schaub to fight against current free-agent Derrick Lewis. This unexpected offer comes after Schaub’s recent losses to Roy Nelson, Travis Browne, and Andrei Arlovski. Masvidal believes that a fight between Schaub and Lewis would be a thrilling matchup.
Schaub, who was a finalist on The Ultimate Fighter 10 in 2009, has had a successful career in the UFC. He has defeated notable opponents such as Gabriel Gonzaga, Mirko Cro Cop, Lavar Johnson, and Matt Mitrione. Despite his retirement, Schaub has remained active in the MMA community as a podcast host and standup comedian.
Lewis, on the other hand, recently showcased his skills at UFC 291, where he knocked out Marcos Rogerio de Lima in just 33 seconds. This victory marked the completion of Lewis’ contractual obligations with the UFC. Now, Masvidal sees an opportunity for Schaub to face off against Lewis, creating an exciting matchup that fans would love to see.
If Schaub accepts the offer, it would mark a remarkable return to the sport for the 40-year-old former champion. Fans and fellow fighters are eagerly awaiting Schaub’s decision and the potential for an exhilarating showdown between him and Lewis.
