2) Beefs With Brendan:
Two years ago, the UFC booked an unranked Brendan Schaub to a fight with No. three-ranked heavyweight Travis Browne. During an interview on the “Joe Rogan Experience,” Schaub made comments implying that Browne’s recent move to Tarverdyan’s camp was “good” for his (Schaub’s) chances in their bout.
This prompted Tarverdyan, to comment (among other things) that, in his opinion, Schaub couldn’t “fight for s—t”. Tension mounted, social media insults whirled, and Tarverdyan even verbally confronted Schaub at the weigh-ins.
