At 27, Brendan Schaub has plenty of time to mature into an elite heavyweight fighter in the UFC. He's already loaded with talent, he justs needs more experience, and with that, more tailored training practices as he advances through the ranks.

He won his official UFC debut at UFC Live on Versus in 47 seconds. The "TUF 10" finalist had lost via knockout to Roy Nelson in the Ultimate Finale last December.

Schaub seems like a genuinely nice guy who is excited about the path he has chosen in life. Even if you are getting punched in the face, that's probably better than riding the bench for the Buffalo Bills. Watch our video below and see.
