When you pride yourself as a comedian, actor, retired martial artist, television host, commentator and former collegiate football player, you shouldn’t be surprised when you have the nickname “The Hybrid”. Brendan Schaub is perhaps the perfect “Jack of all Trades.”

Brendan attended Overland High School where he started honing his skills in competitive sports. He actively played football.

Brendan’s UFC adventure began when he became friends with heavyweight contender Shane Carwin. They trained together and soon enough, he joined Ultimate Fighting Championship from the team, Rashad, defeating players like Demico Rogers, Jon Madsen, and Marcus Jones to reach the final which he lost by knock out to Roy Nelson.

In October 2010, he made his debut at UFC 121 in California against Gabriel Gonzaga, a former UFC heavyweight title challenger, and won the match, In March 2011, he faced Mirko Cro Cop and beat him through in the third-round KO following a well-placed counter-punch and a four-fight win streak.

On October 12, 2015, he announced his retirement.


Brendan has got good looks and charisma to burn, hence getting the ladies drolling has never been a challenge for him. He dated American professional wrestler, actress, and former mixed martial artist Ronda Rousey. Due to various reasons, the relationship was doomed from the beginning. Rousey had a brief relationship with another UFC fighter Travis Browne who had knocked out Brendan in a fighting bout.
