>It's a "Joe gets his close friend on to tell him publicly that he sucks at his job and should quit (and his friend cries)" episode
>it's a Joe starts talking about big dudes with bulging muscles and calls them "sweetie" episode
Rogan was right though. Brendan Schaub would have gotten starched by Cain Velasquez or any other top five guy. This was before Schaub retired, too. Fighters at that level have no shortage of people telling them they can beat anybody. I'm glad Schaub has at least one friend in his life who was will willing to shoot straight with him and tell him he doesn't want to see him get rocked by the HW elites.
Why not, exactly? He's a grown man. They were talking about MMA on the podcast, which Rogan and Schaub always do when they're together. Schaub just lost a fight badly two days beforehand and was saying the stoppage was early, so Joe told him he saw it differently. That's about it. It's not like he just publicly humiliated him on the air. Everybody knew Schaub never had a chance against the top five.
Then do it in private. Why call him out in public?

>Just bring real bro
Why didn't Brendan tell Joe he'd never be a top comedian and just give up? He'd never stand with the greats
Maybe Brendan was making good money fighting? And every fight would've made him more experienced and when he did retire he'd have more credentials as a coach - which is the only option for fighters.
Brendan's gonna be broke as fuck one day and look back and be like.. man fuck Joe I needed to fight for money not for some imaginary belt cause I won a few fights in a row
>"I think you would be surprised, I think you would get your ass kicked"
while true, it's pretty much the same as saying "you're a scrub" live on the air. should have been a private convo
Rogan and Schaub always run podcasts together like they're candid conversations. They don't hold back on real talk until the cameras stop rolling. That's really never how they've done it.
>Why didn't Brendan tell Joe he'd never be a top comedian and just give up?
1. Because they weren't talking about comedy.
2. Joe's pretty respected in MMA circles and people like Schaub consider him a friend and value his opinion.
3. He never told Schaub that he should just quit MMA.
You're acting like Rogan just laughed in his face and called him garbage. Instead he told him as a friend that he doesn't believe he could beat the absolute best in the world, which not only isn't humiliating, but is 100% true and everybody who knows anything about MMA has known this for years. He didn't embarrass him.
>Maybe Brendan was making good money fighting? And every fight would've made him more experienced and when he did retire he'd have more credentials as a coach - which is the only option for fighters.
Then Brendan can make that decision for himself, which he did. Also, coaching is not the only option for fighters, particularly not Schaub, who actually has a good gig going right now.
telling any fighter they'd get their ass kicked is a giant ego smasher for them.
Dude was literally on the verge of tears and this convo is now arguably his most memorable moment in mma history. I don't know how much more you need.
>telling any fighter they'd get their ass kicked is a giant ego smasher for them.
You know what would have been a bigger ego smasher? Getting pummeled by Cain, who Schaub seemed very sure he would have beaten.
>this convo is now arguably his most memorable moment in mma history
lol no. No way, not even close
