During the latest episode of his podcast, Brendan Schaub used strongly worded language to describe his views on two recent altercations. Schaub has been trying to kickstart his own podcast network so he’s been trying to offer interesting takes. In his opinion what transpired with both Masvidal and Will Smith can best be described as “soft, beta, soy boy sh*t.”
As a reminder, Jorge Masvidal is facing 2 felony charges after an incident where he allegedly ambushed Colby Covington with an assist from Nelk boys’ Bob Menery.
Schaub previously talked about being a fan of Jorge Masvidal, but his latest actions have rubbed him the wrong way.
“You [Jorge Masvidal] got your a*s whooped… Colby beat his a*s for 25 minutes, dude. And then [Masvidal] retaliates by finding out what restaurant’s he at and sucker-punching him?… It’s so stupid, and for what? Did it feel good to sucker-punch a guy and clip his tooth when you got literally destroyed for 25 minutes legally by commission in the sport?”
Schaub went ahead and called the entire incident “the most b**ch sh*t in the world.”
Furthermore, Schaub piled on Will Smith in reference to the incident at the Oscars in which Smith stormed to the stage and slapped Chris Rock after the comedian made a joke about his wife. Schaub said:
“Will Smith, basically a cheap shot, too. It’s just b**ch tendencies, dude. Soft sh*t. Society’s getting softer and softer. Anybody who’s sticking up for Will Smith, sticking up for Masvidal – it’s just soft, beta, soy boy sh*t.”
Schaub still took time to try and convince Covington to drop the charges he had filed against Masvidal. In his opinion – this was “excessive”, Schaub said Covington should consider a more lenient action against Masvidal since Masvidal is a father and they have a long history.
“I was surprised he [Covington] is pressing charges... If you press charges and he [Masvidal] is found guilty, which he will be, he’s looking at time, dude. You really want to put Masvidal away for, I don’t know, 2 years, 3 years, over this? Seems a little excessive. I wish, you know, someone can get in Colby’s ear and just be like, ‘Don’t press charges, dude. Don’t do that, man.'”
The MMA world appears to be divided on whether Colby Covington should pursue a harsher form of punishment, primarily due to Jorge Masvidal’s fame and the fact that he’s in the swan’s song stages of his career.
