Baroni Wins WW Debut, Gets Headbutted by Asshole

Phil Baroni‘s first match as a welterweight was a resounding success, as the New York Badass dominated Scott Jansen to a first-round knockout victory at Cage Rage 27 last night in London. Unexpectedly, Baroni quickly got the fight to the ground, scoring a smooth double-leg takedown shortly after the bell and effortlessly controlling Jansen from the top. After an armlock attempt didn’t pan out, Baroni moved to full mount, but both men were quickly ordered to their feet by the ref. Baroni then reverted back to his bread and butter, turning out Jansen’s lights with a perfect right hook; Baroni returned after the stoppage to shake the hand of his still-sleeping opponent.

About thirty seconds later, Baroni made the mistake of going back again to check on Jansen, and one of Jansen’s cornermen responded by headbutting him — or “nutting” him, as the commentators colorfully put it. (“Wot’a dizgrace.”) The headbutter conveniently disappeared after the confrontation, while Baroni scored big-time respect points for not chasing him down and tearing his dumb ass apart. Video of the fight and post-fight assault is above; the questionable ref standup is at 3:36, the knockout punch is at 3:58, and the headbutt is at 4:45. Baroni competes next at Icon Sport: Hard Times (August 2, Honolulu), where he’ll face 3-5 Jesus Is Lord jobber Ron Verdadero.

In other action at Cage Rage 27, Neil Grove defeated Robert Berry in their rematch, stopping “Buzz” via strikes in the second round, while Mustapha Al Turk scored a first-round ground-and-pound TKO over James McSweeney to win the Cage Rage British heavyweight title. Full results are after the jump.

    I love the fact that the guy who headbutted Baroni was called an asshole. Usually that moniker is reserved for Baroni himself! You can't say that he wasn't a bit of an ass either especially when he shook the hand of an opponent that was still laid out watching cartoons in his head.

    I thought that too, but then I memmered they earlier showed the guy talking to his corner men. His arm was still limp but whatever.

    A huge win for Baroni, that couldn't have gone any better for him. So far it looks like the drop in weight was a good idea, clearly he hasn't lost any punching power.

    the headbutter was Jansen's brother Dean. Fucking idiot.

    If, while standing next to Phil Baroni, YOU'RE the asshole, perhaps it's time to reevaluate your life.

    You cant call Baroni an asshole for shaking his opponents hand.Weather the guys still asleep or not isnt the issue its all about the cornerman who nutted him. Someone has stated that the conerman was jansens brother but that dont make it right. Jansen is a big boy who im sure knows what can happen in the cage and so should his brother. Its just fucking ridiculous that it happend. It also doesnt do the sport we love any favours with the press this incident will recieve. Ban Jansens brother from every m.m.a event for all time. It makes every organization in the uk look amateurish. Well done Baroni for not being sucked into a brawl. They should give you a medal for not kicking the shit outa that guy

    Well, 'Dean' is a fucking tool. Congrats to Baroni, he looked good. Here's hoping he wins his next fight, and the one after that, and gets back in contention.

    I really hope that with Baroni at welterweight, and Nick Diaz fighting at random catchweights, that we can have some sort of matchup between the two. I'm sure the build would have a thousand curse words per minute and their camps would be "nutting" all over each other, there would be scuffles in cages, back alley Compton brawls, and New York Ladder matches. It'd be so sweet.

    He did the right thing and didnt react Baroni but i still wish he KO'd him and put him asleep next to his brother!

    dont they usually leave someone on their back when they got knocked the F out? and was that Dan Mergilotta or however you spell it? with the standup? -Dyn

    this is the first time i've ever seen someone stood up when they had mount, i thought that mount and back mount were considered off limits for stand up no matter how long and inactive you maybe with the position. i've seen people do nothing with both for an entire round.
  12. ADW Says:

    Sat, 07/12/08 - 05:39


    Yeah I didn't know that Dan Mirglimacaroni (Or whatever the hell his name is) was a ref in England. I didn't think that any thing could make Phil Baroni look classy, but him not knocking out that ref or the corner man scores him points in my book.
  13. emil Says:

    Sat, 07/12/08 - 06:04


    That's not Dan Miragliotta (or however the fuck he spells it). He is about five times the size of the ref above.

    definitely a questionable standup, was weird that Baroni didn't complain, but that knockout was crazy, how hard are the floors in Cage Rage?
  15. Ryan Says:

    Sat, 07/12/08 - 08:47


    Especially after Baroni didn't jump on him after the knockout and punch him in the face once or twice more. He easily could have, and then for the corner to do that while Baroni was checking up on him... Man, Baroni should so that asshole for all he's worth. It's not like the dude can deny anything, it's on tape and clearly unprovoked.

    Did the sucker-butting bitch get thrown in jail? Funny how fast he moved backwards before Baroni even looked. Bitch ass would have got dropped like his chump brother. The league should have that fool arrested and prosecuted so that shit stops.
  18. Smith Says:

    Sat, 07/12/08 - 09:10


    The ref for that fight was Grant Waterman , he referees most of the big fights at Cage Rage . I totally agree with darren , jansens brother should be banned from all mma events as he's nothing but a fuckin idiot

    Anybody notice Jansen's girlfriend in the 1980's prom dress? She came out and wanted to start talking smack, but then realized Jabroni, I mean Baroni would probably lay her out too. GOD I hate the British. I could barely stand to hear the commentators "nutting" all over eachother.
  20. BLS1919 Says:

    Sat, 07/12/08 - 10:56


    WOW i hope they bring up assault charges against that guy. Thats ridiculous. I think Phil didnt know the kid was still out when he shook his hand the first time. Either way the "nutting"(cant get past that term) was a cowardly thing to do, what a punk

    What everybody appears to have forgotten to mention was the near riot after the Stav Economou versus Piotor Kusmierz fight. I was at the event and the build up to the fight was immense. I was in the 13th row of the floor seats and the entire back row of the seats behind us was filled with Polish fans cheering for their man. When Popek Rak came in rapping in front of Piotor the arena went mental. I've never been to a fight like that ever. The atmosphere was absolutely electric. Both fighters really went at it with Piotor's fans chanting away in Polish. Amazing. It almost went bad when I believe one of Stav's fans ran up to jeer at the Pole's after their guy lost. It got a bit tense with Wembley's security team doing their best to impose control. After the fight, most of Piotor's fans left leaving a substantial chunk of the arena empty. It's amazing seeing what having a Polish fighter on a card in the UK can do for ticket sales!

    Whats up with 'nutted' and 'nuts' in this video.. pretty weird .. check out 5:13 .. you see the word NUTS on the floors .. its a subliminal advertisement for Nutter Butter's or something

    its the UK, them wankers talk strange, but they love their MMA! Major props to Baroni, you couldnt handle that situation any better then he did. After the KO, i was half expecting some kind of outburst from him telling us how great he is (ie .. "I'M THE MAN! IM THE FUCKIN MAAAAAN!) but he handled that very well also .. MMA is a better place with the NYBA in it .. many of us would never admit it, but its true.

    Solid win for Baroni. Anyone know if jansen ever woke up/his condition? Looked like he wasn't even close to waking up at the end of the vid.
  28. MGillis Says:

    Sun, 07/13/08 - 03:06


    Jansen's entire camp was a bunch of idiots. His dumb twat girlfriend came in to the cage beaked off and flipped off baroni. But on the other hand it was pretty hilarious seeing him shake Jansen's limp hand.

    Damn, wot a KO, and i meant myself after looking at how ugly those damn British girls are!! Fuckin Brit's r terrible fighters, sore loser's, and "nutter's?" Thought the announcer was saying Baroni got kneed in the balls! Calzaghes' an asskicker but he's Welsh and a boxer so i don't think he counts! Don't mind that guy's brother but the girlfriend? Baroni shoulda slapped her pretty!!

  31. irieboy Says:

    Sun, 07/13/08 - 08:10


    it wasn't a kimura, it was a straight armbar. same physics as the more common armbar, except you aren't humping the other guy's arm.
  32. Anonymous Says:

    Sun, 07/13/08 - 10:52


    it looked like he tried to go for an armbar, and then when he couldnt get him to tap, he tried to go for the kimura

    To get headbutted by the brother of the guy you just knocked out in a consented professional fight and then to have his slag of a wife call you a wanker for doing what they were both trained to do, and not hit out at her or his fag of a brother is remarkable restraint but also common sense. He'd probably have been in more shit than the tit in the yellow top if he'd hit back. I'm sure he got the shit kicked out of him for that anyway. Hopefully.
