Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Because of Joe Rogan’s help and his personal 11-fight profession as a UFC Heavyweight, Brendan Schaub has established himself as one of many extra broadcasted voices in MMA. His podcast, “The Fighter And The Child,” is sort of profitable, and Schaub has additionally appeared on Showtime as an analyst and comic.

What Schaub isn’t, nonetheless, is a scientist or illness researcher. Regardless of his {qualifications} falling outdoors the realm of epidemiology, Schaub has nonetheless repeatedly spoken out in regards to the COVID-19 pandemic, arguing about statistics and customarily downplaying your entire factor.

Within the clip above, Schaub argues for holding UFC occasions, “Let’s say all of them bought Corona … worst-case state of affairs, everybody on the cardboard bought Corona. 97% likelihood, they’re going to be effective. Would you guess on that? Have a look at the possibility you getting in a automotive wreck on the best way to work … that’s the best way I have a look at it, simply stats. I take my feelings out of it and have a look at the stats. Yeah, I’d put it on.”

Because it seems, Schaub’s lack of concern for the virus didn’t maintain him secure. Schaub lately admitted that he contracted COVID-19, although he believes himself to be “virtually 100%” after a 3 day battle with the virus.

Will Schaub’s brush with the virus change his perspective? Someway, I doubt it. Nevertheless, it ought to at the least be harder for Schaub to write down it off as a hoax totally after his personal expertise.
