UFC heavyweight Brendan Schaub claims he was too much man for Ronda Rousey in relationship

For those optimistic fight fans who would jump at the chance to date UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, Big Brown has some advice for you.

UFC heavyweight Brendan Schaub used to date Rowdy but claimed that he was "too much" for her as she prefers yes men.

Speaking on Joe Rogan's podcast on Saturday night, Schaub said: "I did her a favour. I'm not the man for the job."

When Rogan jokingly accused him of not being man enough for the undefeated Rousey, Schaub said that it was the other way around.

"I'm too much," he said. "She needs a guy who's gonna take a backseat and that's not me. She also needs a man who's going to say 'yes ma'am, yes ma'am.'

"She's so successful that she's surrounded by people who worship her and go 'yes, yes that's a good idea,' but when I went 'I don't think that's a good idea,' now I'm a hater."

Rogan stepped in to put an end to the conversation because Rousey wasn't there to fight her corner and Schaub has never been malicious to his ex but, when they were together, there probably wasn't a more dangerous couple in the world.
