Classic Clip: Phil Baroni Was Never Really Great at Losing


(Props: ix3623vault)

At this point, emotional post-fight breakdowns are the norm for Phil Baroni. (Remember this old classic?) Since each loss seems like it could represent the end of the road for the veteran slugger, we understand why he takes them so hard. But as the above clip demonstrates, Baroni has always had a difficult time coping with losses, even the ones that came before he really had a professional career.

Prior to making his MMA debut in 2000, Phil Baroni was a standout on the Toughman amateur boxing circuit. Though he won most of his fights, he lost a decision to a dude named Sam Rodriguez (date of fight unknown), and reacted by storming out of the ring and beating up every inanimate object in sight, including a defenseless fire hose door. His longtime training partner Mark Coleman would later pay tribute to the incident in the acclaimed short film "FUUUUUUUUCK!"

And now that we have this bit of footage, we’re only missing one thing: A clip of Baroni throwing a tantrum after a loss at one of his old bodybuilding competitions. Make it happen, Internet.

Phil Baroni should just fight the entire cast of Jersey Shore next. No rules, no commissions, just a bunch of roided pumpkins swinging until the dust settles.

Yeah Baroni is great. I still don't think he'll get axed by the UFC. He gives entertaining fights and Tavares was almost out. He's never going to be a standout, but it's not like the UFC really cares. Give him another step down in competition.

I'm gonna miss Baroni. Definitely one of my favorites. Not because he was great or anything, but because he was always enteraining, both inside and outside the ring. Whether stomping undersized, crazy kamikaze's in Japan or going toes with Shamrock or gassing midway thru the 1st in the UFC...

Good luck, New York Badass. Hopefully you saved a enough dough to live/live comfortably/survive on(judging by that funny ass vid of that jalopy you drive, probably not). "The best evah!"

It's gotta be one of a few things that's fucking up Baroni:
1) He was bottle-fed.
2) He's the douchebag di tutti douchebag.
3) It's the steroids.
4) He's a little bitch.
5) His daddy never gave him a reach around.
6) All of the above.

I can't decide if Baroni is more entertaining when he celebrates a win or when he throws a tantrum after a loss.
