MMA Fighter Challenges People to Punch Him in the Face, Everyone Fails

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.

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.

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
irieboy- July 13, 2008 at 8:10 am
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.
dandaman- July 13, 2008 at 6:42 am
at 2:36 the commentator calls a kimura an armbar...i dont understand :(
Fug- July 13, 2008 at 6:26 am
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!!
MGillis- July 13, 2008 at 3:06 am
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.
Mark- July 13, 2008 at 3:04 am
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.
Barry McKockenner- July 13, 2008 at 2:36 am
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.

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
T BONE- July 13, 2008 at 1:13 am
damn... baronis lucky the guy couldn't "nutted" for shit cos he coulda busted his head open if he got him with a good one... i couldn't see baroni being so cool n calm if that happened lol
shutupandfight- July 12, 2008 at 11:47 pm
what is a yellow shirt/ shiny belt wearin queer doing in the cage in the first place?

oustanding KO...Baroni found that fuker's switch and flipped it OFF.

WAR GLAD!
Chuck's Penis- July 12, 2008 at 10:58 pm
he just nutted Baroni!, I thought only Baroni's boyfriend got to do that to him?

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!

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
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.
