In this talk with Fox News’s "Fight Game" it’s difficult to tell whether Phil Baroni is drunk or just on the downward slope of a career spent getting punched in the head. It’s like that time you did a terrible karaoke rendition of "Little Red Corvette" before throwing up all over your girlfriend’s shoes. There’s only one acceptable explanation, and it’s ‘I was drunk.’ Let’s hope the seven-dollar beers at the Mandalay Bay were to blame for how this interview turned out, and not ten years worth of abuse in the cage.
The catalyst for this particular discussion is the UFC 109 victory by fellow New Yorker Matt Serra over one of Baroni’s Xtreme Couture training partners, Frank Trigg. Apparently, gym loyalties are nothing compared to regional ones. Plus, Serra goes into the Starbucks where Baroni’s mom works and gives her good tips, while all Trigg has ever done is make an awkward pass at her at Baroni’s wedding. Yet another situation where ‘I was drunk’ is the only explanation that will suffice.
After the jump, Eddie Bravo discusses his path to jiu-jitsu, and subtly overstates his own importance.
