Report: Phil Baroni to Take on Amir Sadollah at UFC 106

According to, Phil Baroni will make his return to the UFC at UFC 106 (November 21st, Las Vegas) against cursed TUF 7 winner Amir Sadollah. It will be Baroni’s first Octagon appearance since his submission loss to Pete Sell at UFC 51. After leaving the UFC in 2005, Baroni competed in PRIDE, Icon Sport, and Strikeforce, among other promotions, going 5-5 as a middleweight, then 3-1 as a welterweight. He most recently dropped a decision to Joe Riggs at Strikeforce: Lawler vs. Shields.

Amir Sadollah’s MMA career hasn’t quite lived up to the promise of his storybook run on TUF 7, where he scored stoppage victories over Steve Byrnes, Gerald Harris, Matt Brown, and CB Dollaway (twice), despite coming into the show with a 0-0 professional record. After two separate injuries suffered in training, Sadollah finally made his return to the cage at UFC 101, 14 months after the TUF 7 finale, came in way underweight, and was TKO’d by Johny Hendricks in 29 seconds. Needless to say, both guys have a lot to prove, and the loser of their match will have to decide if he really wants to continue in a profession that’s treated him with so much cruelty. No word yet on whether this match will be on UFC 106′s televised card. Any early predictions?

@ are correct Sir! although, I'd give it at least a full minute before Sodallah becomes "Narcoleptic" due to Drakkar Noir scented head strikes.

The only thing Baroni can offer is precisely what can beat Sadollah in less than thirty seconds... Baroni wins this one by punches to the face.

This one is TOO easy...

Baroni pisses dirty and is replaced by the next closest fighter to him, Matt Serra. 5 Seconds into the first round, both of Amir's knees give out, Serra capitalizes by rushing in with stiff-armed hooks like he's wearing a sportscoat with the hanger still inside and then after winning, Serra runs around the ring with a permanent "Oh" face.

Sodallah head kick KO.

Sadollah is struck by lightning twice as he enters the Octogan. Baroni doesn't make it to the ring as he catches a glimpse of himself in the mirror and begins flexing. Dan Mirgliotta rules it TKO victory for Buffer.

Baroni out muscles and berets Sadollah with a series of destructive punches in the secondTKO-- It is THEN, his lungs will collapse.

Sadollah gets TKO'd by Baroni in the first, then drops to 155 a la Florian.

Amir forgets his fuckin' shinebox and gets his face punched off 20 seconds in, Baroni jumps on the cage and starts to scream "I'm the best eva" but gasses after "the".

This fight will be televised. A TUF Champion and the return of cocky icon with grand enterences. I think it will make the cut. At least I hope it does. Phil is the man.

Who will win though?
