Brendan Schaub offers explanation for Rose Namajunas’ lackluster performance against Carla Esparza at UFC 274

Brendan Schaub recently faced a lackluster loss of Rose Namajunas to Carla Esparza at UFC 274. According to Schaub, it was Namajunas, not Esparza, who was responsible for one of the worst title fights in UFC history.

Schaub claims that Rose Namajunas is definitely the best in her class in the world unless she has a nervous breakdown. According to TUF alum, it was her state of mind that stopped her from slamming her opponent at UFC 274. He recently said the above. The Schaub Show:

“The reason this fight is boring is not because of Carla. It’s because of Rose, she doesn’t want to join. She has this mental block. . They fight any other night and Rose gets along. to herself and wanting to be there and get out of her own way, she lit Carla.”

Additionally, Schaub has joined a long list of MMA figures to at least partially blame Namajunas for losing the title. Like others before him, the former UFC heavyweight champion believes it was wrong of the former champion’s corner to give in to complacency when they weren’t sure which way the fight would turn.

“I love the whole team surrounded by Rose. My only criticism is, in perspective, saying ‘You’re four innings’ or ‘Keep doing what you’re doing.’ “I think they gave her a disclaimer. I don’t think they’re being honest with her, I think that’s why she lost.”
