Apparently This Skinny, Bearded Guy Is Phil Baroni

Though he’s slated for a welterweight bout against Karo Parisyan at Bellator 122 later this month, New York Bad Ass Phil Baroni has been preparing for a drop to lightweight. On Friday, Baroni posted this photo of his impressively lean (but oddly un-Baroni-like) physique, and it’s kind of freaking us out. As of last week, he weighed 169 pounds, and that was before his morning dump. #oversharing #besteva #stilltheman

It’s crazy. Even after a large Italian meal, Baroni still looks like he switched bodies with Mike Swick. So is Lightweight Baroni destined for greatness, or will he land on the bad/ugly end of the spectrum?

Brace Yourself: Alistair Overeem Will Be Looking a Little Thinner at Today’s UFC 169 Weigh-Ins

We just wanted to give you a heads up so you don’t spaz out later today: The gigantic, hippo-raping Alistair Overeem that you’ve come to love to is no longer with us. In his place is a noticeably slimmer guy who’s still jacked, but not suspiciously jacked. As the Reem explained to MMAJunkie:

I actually dropped some weight. I wanted improved cardio, so obviously you want to lose some weight. That actually goes automatic. A lot more cardio and you automatically lose a lot of weight. We just wanted [my cardio] to be better.

Overeem, who weighed-in near the heavyweight limit of 265 pounds for his first two UFC appearances, seemed to fade by the third round of his UFC 156 match against Antonio Silva, and got knocked out as a result. But then he weighed in at a relatively svelte 255.5 pounds for his August match against Travis Browne and got KO’d in the first round anyway, so who knows.

More importantly, Overeem recently parted ways with the Blackzilians camp, and has been spending his training camp for tomorrow’s fight against Frank Mir at the SuperPro camp in Thailand. A change in scenery and a change in body type — will it be enough to pull the Dutch slugger out of his losing skid?

If there was any question as to what kind of shape Fedor Emelianenko would be in for his upcoming Strikeforce fight Saturday night against Dan Henderson, this photo should answer it.
