(Press Release) Brendan “The Hybrid” Schaub is one of three UFC fighters nominated for the Tequila CAZADORES Spirit Award at UFC 121. The award is presented to Octagon fighters who have embodied the core values of social responsibility, sportsmanship, and dedication to mixed martial arts, as well as demonstrated honor and integrity both in and out of competition.

When the votes are tallied, Tequila CAZADORES will present a $1,000 check to the winner’s designated charity. Alchemist Management and Hosting.com will each match that total if Brendan Schaub is selected by fans as the winner – bringing the total donation to $3,000 to Brendan’s designated charity, Doctors Without Borders.

“Brendan is passionate about the amazing work that Doctors Without Borders does and we are honored to support him and help champion his cause,” said Alchemist Management President Lex McMahon.

Alchemist Management, led by three-time Grammy Award-winner MC Hammer, represents Brendan “The Hybrid” Schaub, and Hosting.com, the leading provider of hybrid hosting solutions, is a proud sponsor of Schaub who will be back in action on October 23.

“Our experience with Brendan confirms that he is a worthy nominee and ultimately, recipient of the Spirit Award,” said Art Zeile CEO of Hosting.com. “Brendan’s desire to donate his winnings to Hosting.com client Doctors Without Borders is a testament to Brendan’s compassion. Hosting.com is proud to sponsor Brendan in the cage and is also pleased to support Brendan’s efforts outside of the cage.”

With the help of fans across the world, Schaub has the opportunity to help Doctors Without Borders continue their work in providing urgent medical care to countries whose citizens’ survival is threatened by violence, neglect, or catastrophe.
