After a successful stint on season 10 of The Ultimate fighter that saw him take runner-up honors, Brendan Schaub looked primed to become one of the heavyweight division’s top contenders.

He had all the size and power of a heavyweight, with the speed and athleticism of a much lighter fighter, and this contrast led him to victories in four straight Octagon appearances, including bouts against Gabriel Gonzaga and Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic.

Since his devastating knockout victory over the Croatian legend, though, Schaub has fallen on rough times, and he has his chin squarely to blame.

Because of his inability to take a punch, Schaub’s upcoming bout against Lavar Johnson at UFC on Fox 5 will be his last before settling into retirement.

Here’s why.
