I think Dana and the UFC are trying to give some older guys one last go so they can make some money and ride off into the sunset, guys like Renzo Gracie, Phil Baroni and Paul Buentello.

I always like to watch Baroni fight. They are exciting fight for the first round or so and he always "brings it". To bad his cardio is always suspect. Not the most technical ground fighter compared to some guys but his stand up is upper tier. Those of you that bash him and say he has no skills kill me; wonder how an average Joe would fair against a "skilless" NY badass?

The point it not that he literally has no skills, but he is a low skilled fighter in the context of elite MMA. So what if he can beat any average joe to a pulp, this is about the top ranks of a sport not a bar fight. Baroni isn't even mid tier, and is only an attraction for low skilled windmilling that evidently pleases some people.

This Guy shouldve been cut after his last fight all he did was go for his quick flurry at the start and gas himself an take a beating from amir even during his quick flurry he didnt trouble amir.

Phils time has long gone and the guy should hang up his gloves and maybe go into training or something.Just hope hes not on the main card.

You know what, even if he'll lose to most elite fighters these days, he still comes out to fight. I can respect that in him and prefer watching him over some top fighters who try to win solely on points and leg hump someone the whole fight.

So war on Baroni !

Am I the only one that thinks that their going to get a Boston guy to destroy the "New York Badass"? Seriously the UFC should be a little ashamed of this one. Dana gets on other promotions for pulling this crap. He should look in the mirror.
