Brendan Schaub has stumbled only one time in his professional mixed martial arts career. And he doesn’t intend on that happening again anytime soon.

It has been five months since Schaub last set foot in the Octagon, but he’ll make his return Saturday night at UFC 128 in Newark, N.J. It’s too soon to tell if the fight will be his toughest to date, but it is definitely his most high profile.
