Brendan Schaub on Cro Cop: “There’s going to be no high-fiving. There’s going to be no hugging.”

TUF 10 runner up, Brendan Schaub faces former PRIDE legend, Mirko Cro Cop at UFC 128 and according to Schaub you can expect no hugs or high-fives like the Croation received in previous fights.

Schaub, speaking via Fighters Only Magazine, said:

“I think guys get so caught up in respecting Mirko so much they don’t approach him with a killer instinct. They don’t look for the finish. If you look at his last few fights he fought some tough guys, Frank Mir and Pat Barry, but they go out there and show him too much respect.”

“I respect the guy just as much as those guys do if not more. It was the same with Gonazaga. I respect these guys so much that I give them the best fight I can on the night. That’s my way of showing respect to these guys – I go in there and try and take their heads off. I put the pressure on them.”

“There’s going to be no high-fiving. There’s going to be no hugging. I can tell you that.”
