Former Ultimate Fighter winner Brendan Schaub got himself back in the win column Saturday night at UFC 157: Rousey vs. Carmouche, besting Lavar Johnson in the main prelim bout on FX.
Schaub, who had lost two straight, was able to use his wrestling to avoid the striking of Johnson and grind out the victory.
The win didn’t go unnoticed by a certain famous friend of Schaubs, as NFL superstar Tim Tebow offered up his congratulations via Twitter after the match.
Congrats @brendanschaub! So proud of you! All of your hard work & dedication paid off! Love you bro!

Schaub and Tebow became friends while the quarterback was with the Denver Broncos. He is currently on the New York Jets roster.
