baroni to face nishijima

supposedly this is another fight on the real deal card..i think this would be a great match up..because we know its staying on the feet and it will be a slug fest..i gotta say baroni may be in trouble...nishijima took a beating from mark hunt and kept coming..he can take some serious punishment..and he should be able to dish it out as well against some one closer to his size like baroni..i hope this fight happens..

If Baroni uses his wrestling skills in this fight, there is a hands down victory waiting for him.
But as we all know, Baroni loves to please the crowd. He will stand and bang with the boxer, most likely annihilate him.
Braoni is the faster fighter in general. Faster footwork, faster hands, and not to mention, his fists are like anvils.

Both have the striker's chance, so it can go either way.
But im favoring the Baroni.

First Baroni is going to be defeated at PRIDE 32: The Real Deal by Nishijima, then at December at IFL he'll be killed by Frank Shamrock.

Ah, ok. Thanks for telling me. Well, it should happen, if the US buyers who are new to PRIDE see some familiar UFC names they'll possibly buy the PPV. PRIDE has been smart doing that with Mark Coleman, Kevin Randleman, Vitor Belfort, and Robbie Lawler to name a few.

He's fighting Frank in at Strikeforce in San Jose, not the IFL. And it's gonna be very tough for Nishijima to beat Baroni. Nishijima has no ground game and if Baroni takes him down he will be 0-4 in MMA.

Damn, sorry, my mistake. I thought it was IFL, probably since Shamrock is a coach there. Anyways, sorry again and thank you for correcting me.
