I'm not even going to count the fights with Pardoe & Gracie. Pardoe is some unknown bum and Cesar is a BJJ teacher. Sinosic is a can, but he's atleast better than the last 2.

So, Frank hasn't fought in about 6 years. I wouldn't have a problem with it if Frank was humble. He still thinks he's God's gift to MMA, and last I checked this wasn't 1999. Don't get me wrong, Frank was great, but he hasn't done anything of note since the Tito fight. Baroni's not a can, so I'm shocked Frank actually took this fight to be honest.
well what does it take to get respect? you dont respect him for fighting anyone? no you just think he is stupid right?

Frank is not ken and is not in the shape ken is, and frank is younger, this guy can bang!

And he is very well rounded, not to mention he trains his own fighter and has his own school, people act like he has been sitting aroung eating chips and watchign MMA on tv, this guy is in some of the best shape of his life, did you see him at the gracie fight?

Im not saying he is a god of MMA, a pioneer yeah just as much as ken, and the greatest of allt ime stuff is whats is said by other not me, but he is a great fighter and this fight could go either way, but i have my money on frank.

Stay active, and fight decent competition. If you're going to say you're the best, then fight the best. Frank's ego is the size of Frank Mir's gut.

I don't think Frank's stupid at all, in fact, I think he's the smartest guy in MMA right now. He left on top, and fights bums to keep his name & legacy alive. It's just that I'm not counting out Baroni here. Frank may beat him, Baroni may beat him. It's a toss up. I'm not going to say "Frank in 10 seconds by whatever he wants", because that's just stupid.

Frank's a pioneer, and he's my all time favorite fighter. Yea, it sounds cliche'd to read that nowadays, but Frank actually got me to watch MMA with a different mindset. More about skill rather than violence.

its just the way this poll is going, u guys are makin baroni out to be a can when hes far from it..this guy is way better than people give him credit for, he doesnt gas as easily as he used to , and his hands are legendary..i just think this is a big step up in competition for frank and he might be a lil overwhelmed early and if you let baroni jump on you early, ur goin to sleep
