Im guessing it was Danga that deleted my comment, like the bitch he is.

That is a really good documentary on AKA. It's better than the UFC Countdowns.

mma fan Says:
.
Its all good in the hood, I skimmed the articles and didn't read anything about Baroni, only Davis.
.
Take out the bully beat down parts, and my thoughts on Phil Davis stands.
.
As for Baroni being a bully, well watching his fights of late he has sure gotten it dished back at him over the years. No tears shed, right!

XENOPHON: sorry i should have clarified. I was talking about Phil Baroni pertaining to the video that was posted about AKA.

mma fan Says: - OK, I got it. He is a arrogant prick. So am I, but I didn't ever once until I signed up for Cage Potato pick on weaklings.
.
I often jumped in, or pulled their soon to get whopped ass out of a beat down. Question for you, did you ever help out the guys he picked on?
.
I didn't know he fought in Pride, but it matters not if that is correct or not.
.
Soon enough we will get to see if he "...deserves to have to live a life of a beat up fighter with no money..." After Rashad - if he wins, he only has 1-2 fights before he gets jumped-in by Jones.
.
My gut feeling is you will get to see your wish soon.

ON Transplant Kidney - If you had only donated more, sooner....
.
ON Davis - Maybe I am wrong, but the Wonderful is missing so many skills for his leap into MMA that I wonder how long it will be until he is derailed.
.
As for his his "...regret not saying something, we all could have got started together...." when talking about the other Penn wrestlers. Good thing he went his own way. He would have retarded his learning sticking with the same bunch of wrestlers.
.
Davis sponsors, Dethrone, BSN, Lugz, Headrush and Knight Transportation. Do you know that Knight Transportation ships ammunition for firearms? Best not to let Fox find this out Phil!
.
ON Chael Sonnen - none of that shit in article matters. Now that we all heard Bisping accept the call out - about who the champ is, the only think now worth any value is the bragging rights after the fight, right?
.
ON Demian Maia - he is correct, fans are much more educated today. If they saw a man fighting for a championship belt against Anderson and sliding on the ground to escape a beat down - they too would know he didn't belong in the ring.
.
AND so we all don't forget, Maia says: "...that he would like a rematch with Anderson Silva!"
.
ON Karate Hottie - as I said in the past, gotta love the LBFM's (lil brown fucking machines.) She is nothing special without her make-up. Not much to wake up too. A pair of bolt-ON's would do much to hide that mug. Did you catch her little victory somersault at the end of her video?
.
ON Rashad - Jones says it best, "I am rooting for Rashad to win the fight so I can fight Rashad and get past it, get it over with.”
.
ON UFC Hacking - Quote: “I could give a flying rats ass about UFC. Com : ) , ” White tweeted. “I’m the fight biz not the website biz!! Might be a big deal to other companies not mine.”
.
He is absolutely correct. Think about that one for a minute Cage Potato. So sad, no love today. GRIN
.
ON Great Wrestling Moments - According to MMA Convert, there have only been 6 great moments. Fucking wrestling for 4 years in high school, and then another 4 years in college must just suck.
.
When will we see MMA in high school and college? Who is working on that?
.
I wont look it up. Someone reply back and tell me what the fuck is "Calvinball?"
.
ON Culinary Union - I really do hope to see them get MMA banned from NYC. That would be fucking great to hear all the soured up fans!
.
ON ESPN Coverage of UFC - READ THIS ONE ARTICLE. BEST You decide.
.
ON Sanchez vs. Ellenberger - QUOTE: "Back when I was 19-0 I was like that too (talking about Ellenberger.) With age and experience comes wisdom. Those that exalt themselves will be humbled. Those that humble themselves will be exalted. I'm humbled man; I'm going to fight my best and show him what I got inside my heart and apply my skill set. We're going to do it inside his back yard and its going to be a war,"
.
OK Diego, since you've grown up enough to stop the God Talk, I say GO DIEGO, GO! And lets witness this war bro. Only the lord knows that we pay enough and don't get many great fights.
The "Lord" - GRIN

Phil was always a hot head. Speaking from experience in jr high and highschool he was a bully and was a real asshole. I saw him pick on kids and beat up kids that had absolutely no chance of knowing how to defend themselves. I believe karma is a bitch and what goes around comes around. Without a doubt Phil could have been a great fighter, but throughout the years he always had problems no matter what camp he trained at. He always managed to piss people off and butt heads with trainers,other fighters and basically everyone that was willing to help him.
Over the past couple of years Phil has become more mature and humble realizing that his time is past. Yes were most of his fights be it Pride,strikeforce and UFC entertaining. Absolutely. Nobody is denying that he has the heart of a lion and could have been a great fighter maybe even a champion. It was his own doing that he never became that fighter. I don't feel sorry for him one bit. He deserves to have to live a life of a beat up fighter with no money and forever have the thought of "I could have been a champ" attitude.

Prayers for Dan and Daniel.

I've always wondered how Baroni got that nasty scar on the back of his head, does anyone know?

Shit news about Miller's kid too, I hope things work out soon.
