Baroni vs Salter at UFC 118 in Boston at 185
It’s back to middleweight for the New York Badass. Phil Baroni’s trip to the welterweight class appears over for now as he’s set to return to 185lbs in his next fight when he faces John Salter at UFC 118 in Boston on the undercard of the show.
The 13-12 Baroni fell short in his return to the UFC in a fight against Amir Sadollah, losing by unanimous decision. Now back at middleweight, Baroni has to know the pressure is on to get a win or possibly find a new fighting home.
Facing Baroni in Boston will be Alabama fighter John Salter (5-1) who had an unfortunate ending to his last fight in the UFC when opponent Jason MacDonald snapped his leg in the first round of their fight at UFC 113 in May.
