Brendan Schaub recently went off on UFC president Dana White for dismissing a heavyweight crossover clash between Francis Ngannou and Tyson Fury. He argued that the reason White is disinterested in making the fight is that he isn't poised to turn a profit off the scrap.

Discussing the matter on the latest edition of The Schaub Show, 'Big Brown' argued in favor of setting up a heavyweight super-fight. He admitted that Ngannou could make a significant amount of money even if he loses to Tyson Fury.

He compared Conor McGregor's fight against Floyd Mayweather to Fury vs. Ngannou, claiming that a payday for Dana White is the only difference between the two events. He further argued that 'The Predator' has a better chance of beating Fury than McGregor did against Mayweather.

"I saw [Dana White] say [Tyson Fury] vs. [Francis Ngannou] is stupid blah, blah. Really? It wasn't stupid when [Conor McGregor] fought Floyd Mayweather, when he made all the money. Now that you don't have your hand in the pie, it's stupid."

He added:

"Is he gonna win? Probably not. I don't give a f**k the guy's gonna make life-changing money. He never has to do anything ever again. His kids' kids' kids are rich if he's smart with his money."
