Where the baloni... errr I mean Baroni

With all this UFC recruitment and plans of world domination why haven't they gottent the most electrifying fighter in the game back. Even though Phil originally left the UFC because no one could challenge him and people were contiually turning down fights with him because they felt insecure fighting next to him with their shirts off, don't you think with the new talent coming in, and the stream of young fighters with more toned and tanned bodies that he would be willing to come back??? If by some miracle the UFC could offer him enough money to join up again who would you like to see him destroy new york bad ass style? And, on a less serious not, do you think Dana would allow him to wear tight jean shorts?

Im not convinced... Phil is a good fighter but it's not transcending either...
Dana has other priorities.

Phil only lost to tanner because he was dating Heidi Klum at the time and was focusing more on hitting that then hitting the heavy bag. Wouldn't you?

I remember Pete Sell submitting him as well as a certain Matt Lindland beating him as well, Baroni is a one trick pony he can bang but with all the respect in the world with someone who trains so hard why cant he get his Cardio and Ground game to work in the Octagon?

Baroni is an average fighter at best. The only way Dana would bring him back is to sell tickets b/c he is a nutcase.

Fav Fighters: Arlovski, Filipovic, Franklin, Hughes, Fedor

Future UFC Heavyweight Championship Bout: Cro Cop vs. Arlovski

One trick pony, say that to his chiseled jaw and rock hard abs. He would da dangity dangity booomm knock you out then pull you back up by the lip and ask you if you wanted some more.

He was released from the UFC because he sucks as a fighter (although he is entertaining). He lost four fights in a row and has an overall UFC record of 2-5. He should stay in Pride where the competition is a little easier.

the thread starter is joking around you guys, its actually pretty funny. I like Baroni and would love to see him back in the UFC. I think he is a matchup problem for Silva, and would give him trouble. If he beat Silva he truly would be the best evahhhh!!!
