The former UFC heavyweight, who currently works as a television personality for several outlets including Showtime, became embroiled in a war of words with his old boss after White took him to task over what he perceived to be unfair criticism of Israel Adesanya following the kickboxing convert’s win over Brad Tavares in the main event of The Ultimate Fighter 27 Finale.
White referred to Schaub as “a f**kin tool” and questioned Schaub’s MMA knowledge. Schaub responded by taking a shot at White’s close relationship with Ronda Rousey and calling White a “bald fat guy who has never been in a fight in his life.”
The issue didn’t die there, as White posted the following remarks in which he said it is only because of Schaub’s friendship with Joe Rogan that he has a broadcasting career:
That snipe appeared to be the last straw for Schaub, who posted a lengthy statement on Thursday in which he accused White of riding the coattails of the Fertitta brothers, hurting the UFC’s business, and being his “eskimo brother” (implying that he and White have one or more sexual partners in common):
Schaub closed the statement with the words, “Last warning,” So there may be more to come in this clash of egos.
