I am a fan for life.

I reffed him before he ever had an MMA fight - in grappling!

He won.

Duh.

That's awesome, any vid of some of those early matches?








P.S. Were you wearing the scuba suit while reffing? :)

always been a big fan of Baroni. the thought of "it being over" and never fighting again is a terrible feeling.

I'm a fan of the NYBA, if anyone deserves a 1 fight deal to fight at MSG, win, then announce his retirement.. It's Baroni, he's the New York Badass for fucks sake.

I always liked him, but when I watched him on Fight Factory I became an actual fan of him all around. Phone Post

"JB: MMA has come a long way since you began fighting nearly thirteen years ago. What do you find most remarkable about the developments that have taken place over the years?

PB: It’s how big and how mainstream the sport is today. Everyone trains nowadays. UFC fighters are a dime-a -dozen. It’s a completely different animal. When I was first in the UFC, we weren’t on PPV or legal in Las Vegas. It’s crazy to watch the sport grow. It’s nuts how big it is and that the UFC is on FOX. I never would have thought it would be this big, yet I always knew it would be at the same time. It’s great, but I kind of miss the old days when we were kind of an underground subculture and it was kind of a secret that only the people in-the-know knew about."

I wanna see Phil Baroni fight in the Middle East.

Tons of new shows in the region and the NYBA in Dubai would be SICK SON!
