During the final segment of his show, The Schaub Show, on Monday, Schaub broke down several of the main card matchups for the upcoming event.
Schaub picked John Wayne Parr to get the knockout victory over Eduard Folayang in his retirement bout. If the Aussie were to win, it would mark his 100th professional victory before calling it a career.
For the Japanese legend’s superfight between Shinya Aoki and Yoshihiro “Sexyama” Akiyama, the Coloradan picked Akiyama, who he called “distractingly good looking.”
Schaub got into the meat of the two main events a little more.
For the mixed rules superfight between Rodtang Jitmuangnon and Demetrious Johnson, Schaub expects Johnson’s movement to allow him to avoid a first-round knockout. Once in the mixed martial arts portion of the bout, Schaub predicted that Johnson would get a takedown and choke out the Thai superstar.
For the main event, Schaub’s favorite matchup on the card, he selected Angela Lee to retain the ONE Atomweight World Championship over Stamp Fairtex. However, the veteran noted Stamp’s improvement as an all-around mixed martial artist, making the matchup even more intriguing.
“Whether it’s Bellator, UFC, whatever you watch, nobody has a better card than ONE Championship this week,” said Schaub.
“ONE Championship is delivering some real, real entertaining stuff right now, man.”
