Brendan “Money” Schaub may have his fighting days behind him, but he’s been making more money from his t-shirt sales, podcasts, tours, and other business ventures than he ever made as a fighter. All that money’s burning a hole in his pocket, apparently, since he offered up a 100k bet against boxing’s Max Kellerman.
Max was saying that Conor McGregor wouldn’t land a single punch against Floyd throughout their entire fight, and Brendan Schaub just wasn’t having that, he took it a step further. He bet Kellerman 100k that not only does Conor land punches, but that Conor actually WINS A ROUND against Floyd.
“When I saw Max Kellerman, it pissed me off man… I respect Max Kellerman the most out of any boxing analyst, he’s a beast man. Head of HBO’s Boxing team and all that… He’s an Ivy league dude, smart guy, knows boxing better than anyone. When he goes ‘I guarantee you Conor McGregor won’t land a punch’, you would have thought he slapped my baby,”
“I was like ‘Yo, HELL NO’. Not only will he touch him, he will win at least one round, I can guarantee you he wins at least one round unless the judges f*ck him over,” said the former UFC heavyweight. “But I guarantee you Conor McGregor touches him. I would bet my entire life’s savings on it. That’s like saying Michael Phelps isn’t going to get wet when he jumps in the pool!”
“People go ‘it’s like a soccer playing jumping in and playing baseball’. No, it’s not you f* morons. It is not like that. Both of them are a part of combat sports. Conor has sparred endless and endless rounds of boxing. Not to the level of Floyd Mayweather, but still, combat sport… it’s like one does the breaststroke, one does the backstroke. That’s a better analogy than baseball to rugby or whatever the f*ck these idiots on Fox or ESPN are comparing it to.”
So, if Conor wins at least one round according to all three judges, then Schaub banks a cool 100k. If not, he’ll have to sell a lot of t-shirts to make up for that loss, that’s a doozy.
