Once Again, It’s Do or Die Time for Phil Baroni

(Image courtesy of If you decide to click that link, be advised that the "music off" button is in the upper-left corner.

After dropping his UFC return fight to Amir Sadollah at UFC 106, Phil Baroni (13-12, 3-6 UFC) was slated to come back as a middleweight against John Salter at UFC 118 — but a training injury changed his plans. According to MMA Junkie, Baroni has been re-scheduled to appear at UFC 125 on January 1st against TUF 11 semifinalist Brad Tavares (5-0, 1-0 UFC).

Tavares, who was eliminated on the show by eventual winner Court McGee, returned at the TUF 11 finale and scored a decision win against Seth Baczynski. Now he has a chance to make his name off a struggling veteran, while Baroni can keep his career alive by whipping the 22-year-old Hawaiian. The New York Bad Ass hasn’t tasted victory since outpointing Olaf Alfonso at a Palace Fighting Championship event in September 2008, and it’s a pretty safe bet that if Baroni loses to a barely-established upstart like Tavares, it’ll be the end of his current stint with the UFC. Can Baroni stage another career comeback, or will he catch one of these?

For his next fight, Baroni's main sponsor will be Evalast.

See what I did there?

I hear you Meow, really think the new convection heating toaster ovens is the way to go? Thanks RwilsonR
That makes me forget all the small, insignificant stuff i rambled off earlier,......I'm off to Walmart to get me one of those new fangled ovens you spoke of,....And more pancake syrup.

I want to see Baroni win just because he'll give you the most insanely exciting fight ever for two minutes until he gasses out and gets wrestled down or KO'd. Hell, he got a hell of a fight out of Matt Lindland of all snooze inspiring fighters.

170 was a better class for him, NYBA should drop some muscle mass.

@ Ballkick - Well, obviouslly. It was all a distraction so that Bernie Ebbers and Rudy Giuliani could fund a Michael Moore movie with profits from put options of airlines and kickbacks from Raytheon in exchange for increased cruise missile contracts. We discussed all of this at the last Bilderberger conference. What... you weren't there?

And definitely try one of the new convection heating toaster ovens. They'll get your bread toasted nice and evenly.

And I think you can answer both the weed and Mrs. Butterworth questions through two consecutive viewings of Super Troopers while high.

Please explain the collapse of building 7.....why did it fall?
What important Government Agencies and Documents were lost in this collapse?......
IRS Regional Council,
U.S. Secret Service
Securities & Exchange Commission At the time of its destruction, Building 7 housed documents relating to numerous SEC investigations. The files for approximately three to four thousand cases were destroyed, according to the Los Angeles Times. Among the destroyed documents were ones that may have demonstrated the relationship between Citigroup and the WorldCom bankruptcy. Among many other cases still pending.
Mayor's Office of Emergency Mgmt How curious that on the day of the attack, Guiliani and his entourage set up shop in a different headquarters, abandoning the special bunker (in building 7) designed precisely for such an event ?
Too many things add up to make this improbable & suspicious.


P.S. Silverstein Properties' estimated investment in WTC 7 was $386 million. So: This building's collapse resulted in a profit of about $500 million!
Prior to 9/11
-Huge surges in purchases of put options on stocks of the two airlines used in the attack -- United Airlines and American Airlines
-Surges in purchases of put options on stocks of reinsurance companies expected to pay out billions to cover losses from the attack -- Munich Re and the AXA Group
-Surges in purchases of put options on stocks of financial services companies hurt by the attack -- Merrill Lynch & Co., and Morgan Stanley and Bank of America
-Huge surge in purchases of call options of stock of a weapons manufacturer expected to gain from the attack -- Raytheon
-Huge surges in purchases of 5-Year US Treasury Notes
Put options allow their holders to profit from declines in stock values because they allow stocks to be bought at market price and sold for the higher option price.

@ Fried Taco - his gas tank seems smaller with every fight. I'd give him about 1:15 to win it, or it is over for Baroni.

@ Ballkick - in order:
- Yes
- Yes
- at KFC
- try one with convection heating
- in hell, with the Power Rangers
- No, but I had low expectations
- insert aparatus, then inject fluid (ask Nick Ring for further details)
- No
- good question?
- No
- Yes
- No

I like how the website shows people other than Italians wearing those shirts, like a black girl and an asian guy. As if.

How can someone with such a pathetic record still be fighting in any organization?
This is sick, sad, lame and sorry.
Could Baroni be a "made" guy?..... a "Goodfella"
Is the UFC involved in the Underworld?
Where is Micheal Moore when you need him?
Why doesn't my toaster brown the bread on both sides equally?
What happened to Pokemon?
Is Barack Obama the change and hope you all expected?
How do they get the Caramilk in those Caramilk bars?
Will Margret Cho win Dancing with the Stars?
Why isn't Marijuana legal?
Do you think you'd get sick if you drank a whole bottle of Mrs. Butterworths?
Did Courtney Kill Kurt?
Was 9/11 a False Flag?

Sorry, much Tryptophan yesterday

If he doesn't get the KO in the first two minutes, he'll lose for sure.
