Ronda Rousey ex-boyfriend Brendan Schaub: Rousey wants a yes man
The mystery has been revealed: Brendan Schaub and Ronda Rousey used to date. And Rousey’s ex-boyfriend says the UFC women’s bantamweight champion is tough to date because she only wants a “yes man.”
Schaub, an ex-football player turned MMA fighter, was a guest on “The Joe Rogan Experience,” and they were talking about Rousey. At one point Rousey’s growing wealth was brought up, and someone joked that Schaub should get back together with the champ and that he was missing out. Schaub felt otherwise.
“Believe me, I did her a favor, man. I’m not the guy for the job,” Schaub said of being Rousey’s boyfriend. “I’m just not. I’m too much (of a man). She needs a guy who’s gonna take a backseat. That’s not me. She also needs a guy that’s gonna say ‘yes ma’am, yes ma’am’.
“She’s so successful, she’s surrounded by people that worship her and go ‘yes, yes, that’s a great idea.’ But when I went ‘I don’t think that’s a good idea’, I’m a hater. I have no financial gain from you. I don’t need anything from you. I’ve earned everything myself.”
At that point Rogan cut off the conversation because he felt it was unfair to trash talk Rousey without allowing her a chance to respond. They all agreed, stopped the conversation, and then unanimously praised her as a fighter.
What’s interesting is that this is one of the first times the public has received information about one of Rousey’s love interests. In March, Rousey said that she did not have time for a boyfriend. However, last May there was talk about Rousey having a boyfriend. That must have been Schaub. We’re at least guessing that Schaub is not the ex-boyfriend who took creepy pictures of Rousey. But the two definitely broke up prior to the new year, because Schaub has moved on to someone else.
