  1. Dig, we need a show about the insights of combat sports, ignore the haters, and Keep On Truckin', great show !

  2. Connor was right, he did deserve that fight to be against Connor. He could have used that money and in a different weight class wouldn't have affected his legacy the way the Ortega bout did if he lost.

  3. Christ Brendan…..this is the worst. Just make it real, not this awful badly produced shit.

  4. this is great, a little clunky but its episode 1 and will only get better. Schuab is the man for this role and once it gets its feet under itself its gonna be huge!

  5. I followed you since the ultimate fighter! Doing big things son! I enjoy all your shows. Infact, you have inspired my vlog series. Thanks schaub!

  6. Brandon “I’ll eat your food and throw you through a sliding glass door because I hate bullies” Schawb

  7. whoever told that guy in the intro he can sing, LOL. fucking cringe!

  8. Schaub says some dumb shit at times but he is funny and charismatic as hell.

  9. Great podcast with FTK and BBB but this is bad. Ditch the scripts. You are going to turn into those dbags on ESPN.

  10. 1st episode down, really not that bad for 1st try. I am super excited to see where this ends up. I might actually have to start watching boxing to follow along better >_>

  11. You basically discarded all the strengths of podcasting and introduced all the weaknesses of a scripted tv show. I love bbb, listen every episode but this was truly disappointing. I'm not angry, just ashamed. I know nobody cares but you lost a fan today, sincerely. Gutted!

  12. Charlie z has mental health issue. Seriously the heavyweight champ knocked out a retarded kid.
    On Deontay behalf i don't think he knew that. And you noticed he didn't even want to talk about it.

  13. I support you schaub and hope this works out, but this show seams very planned and not too fluent. I'll be looking forward to episode 2 and to see if any changes were made.

  14. wilder didnt beat the GOAT charlie z is still undefeated. Wilder disqualified him self throwing that upper cut to downed charlie once charlie slipped because he knew he was losing the fight

  15. Loved it! I think this is the kind of show you need to do in front of an audience though. Love Big Brown!

  16. big fan Brendan, BUT. Be yourself!! please dont turn into a talking talk show head. We have enough of those. We loved your casual delivery, talking like a normal dude and pacing yourself. The entire episode feels like an old time E variety show. The host is rushing through things and we dont get to see the real Brendan. I can imagine its really hard to do this type of show, so please take the critique knowing the fans love you

  17. I’ve seen a good of European soccer players lift the legs after someone gets knocked out, like the fighter in Moscow. Wonder what the aim of it is

  18. Personally I enjoy the simplicity of BBB better than this Talk Soup style format. Brendan does like the whole Hollywood, pop culture thing though, so this probably suits him better I suppose.

  19. The interview segments are where the show shines, ‘natural’ Brendan is the best Brendan. He looks comfortable, at ease, and can make a conversation with any fighter interesting. I think the ‘talking head’ stuff is awkward, but mainly because we know the podcast shit shooting Brendan, also, it’s the first episode, it’s probably kinda awkward for Brendan to get into that vibe. I’m looking forward to episode two man! Love that it’s on Youtube ??

    Also, maybe cut back on the quick cuts. Looking down at the camera looks super awkward when they cut back to Brendan. The side cameras are tried and true, maybe just remove the floor Cam.
