"It's a must-win fight," Baroni told MMAjunkie.com Radio. "My back is against the wall, and I've got to win the fight. I'm too old to be a journeyman.

"I don't want to be fighting on small shows. You've got to do what you've got to do. My back's against the wall, and it's time to get serious and take care of my business."

"Nice kid," Baroni said of his UFC 125 opponent TUF 11 cast member Brad Tavares. "My wife said he's a good-looking kid, so I'm definitely going to bust him up. He's a nice kid, but he signed the contract. He accepted the fight, and I'm not really friends with him right now.

"I'm confident in my ability and my training. It's going to be a s---storm that first round, and we'll see if Brad Tavares can get through it. I don't think he can."

"They don't know what in-shape is.  fight hard, and I leave it all in the ring. Maybe guys should fight harder and try and leave it all in the ring – try and fight for a finish. If I laid on top of guys or ran around the ring, I wouldn't get tired, either. That's just how I fight."

"I just want to perform my best. I've been hearing this for six, seven, eight years now – I'm gone. The sport has passed my by. It's a bunch of b-------. I like to prove people wrong.

"One thing I've done over the years is take care of my business. I've always been fighting in the big shows, and when my back's up against the wall, I seem to show up. Plan on me showing up, and plan on me taking this guy out."

"I'm not that old. I'm pretty tough, and I'm confident in myself. I think I'm going on a run here. That's my plan, to win a bunch of fights in the next couple of years in the UFC – not get released and kick some ass. That's what I'm going to do. It's now or never, so I'm embracing the moment. I've been in the sport for 10 years. It's time to go on a run."

A win would be Baroni's first in the octagon since his legendary 18-second win over Dave Menne at UFC 39.

 Dear Santa, all I want for Christmas is a full tank of gas for Phil. Please send him some cardio and maybe another roll of duct tape for his car.

Welcome to the Hater's Ball

I'd buy a PPV headlined with Phil over Grey, Jon, or Mendes ANYDAY.

C'mon Phil, prove these fools wrong.

Leaving it all in the cage is one thing, just make sure it's in the last round.

 He has a lot of things he needs to admit.


Yeah people do dumb shit all the time, but you can only hear so much about a guy punching refs or jumping on fans.


He should also lay off of twitter.  He is not some a celebrity outside of this site.

Goodridge in the house! What's up Big Daddy? Big fan!

Okay, about Phil...

Dude puts it on the line all the time. Win, lose or draw he shows up to fight. There is no pussy footing around when Mr. Baroni steps in the cage.

Hope he gets the win here!

It's cool he's been reflecting on his life and career the last few years, had some amazing fights and maybe more in him, and the guy posts here, and he's the best eva.

OMG Big Daddy in the house!

The UFC is more fun with phil in it so I hope he wins. Hard to believe that his fight with Menne was 94 events ago or something. jesus, I'm so old
