The way i remember that fight, Shaub did absolutely nothing, got hit with the uppercut and the fight was over early in the first. I completely agreed with Rogan when he had the "I think you'd be surprised" talk with Shaub.
After re watcing it and seeing that Shaubs striking didn't look as sloppy as i remembered and he actually took Travis down twice in the fight changes my view on Brenden as a fighter. Travis being top 5 in the world and then looking at the fight Shaub had with Arlovski i tihnk Shaub could still beat alot of guys in the UFC, obviously his lack of chin would still be a problem but he could still be competitive and i feel Rogan is what truly pushed him out of the sport more then any of the Reebok things that Shaub relates it to.
Maybe he would of left either way due to the sponsorship thing but i doubt it, and now that Shaub won't be in the spotlight from the UFC anymore im interested to see how the podcast goes in the coming years, he seems to have thrown all his eggs in one basket with it and idk if thats something you can take to retirement as Shaub seems to think, his 2 millions listeners will start to grow up and get tired of their dick talk as the years go on and if he isn't bringing in new listeners idk how it will all turn out.
