Brendan Schaub on Ghost Adventures

Back in March 2012, former UFC heavyweight Brendan Schaub was on an episode of “Ghost Adventures,” a show on the Travel Channel where a team investigates the scariest, most notorious, haunted places in the world.

Schaub and the crew of “Ghost Adventures,” Zak Bagans, Nick Groff and Aaron Goodwin, filmed on location at the Peabody-Whitehead Mansion in Denver, Colorado.  Denver, just happens to be the location of the very first UFC back in November 1993.

The trio of hosts interviews eyewitnesses and historians at each location they visit, arming themselves with the stories of the ghosts they later confront during their dusk-to-dawn lockdowns.  Then they review and analyze their findings with some of the most-respected experts and specialists in the paranormal field.

In this original episode that aired in 2012, Zak, Nick and Aaron attempt to uncover the truth behind an unsolved murder at the Peabody-Whitehead Mansion in Denver.

From UFC: “Built in 1889, its first owner Dr. William R. Whitehead was convinced the building was plagued by the spirits of hundreds of soldiers he tried to save from his days as a surgeon for the Confederate Army during the United States Civil War.  After his death, when controversial Colorado Governor James Peabody moved in to the mansion, things only worsened.  The governor was viewed by many as the enemy of the working man and in 1904, the Governor ordered state militia to break union strikes by the region’s gold miners by brute force.  Hundreds were injured in the violence, and dozens were killed as their bloodshed was on the governor’s hands.  All the years of torment are now trapped inside this now empty Grant Street mansion.  In addition to being the site of a suicide, there have been over 120 years of ghostly activity in the building including reports of visitors being pushed up against the wall by unseen forces!

Schaub joined the trio at the Peabody-Whitehead Mansion in hopes to shed some light on the evil entities in order to learn more about the darkness that lies within the walls of this historic location.  During the investigation in the basement, it gets personal when a spirit calls out Brendan by name, and then reveals new evidence about an unsolved crime.  This turn of events triggers the involvement of the Denver Police Department – currently reviewing the “Ghost Adventures” team’s evidence.”
