LAS VEGAS – Welterweight Phil Baroni (13-11 MMA, 3-5 UFC) has been on the big stage before.

Whether it was Baroni's previous eight-fight run in the UFC or his sequin-robed waltz down the EliteXC entrance ramps on CBS, the "New York Bad Ass" is no stranger to public attention.

But as Baroni prepares for a return trip the world-famous octagon, the 33-year-old is shedding some of his previous antics in favor of a new title: a poor man's Josh Koscheck.

"I plan on being like a poor man's Josh Koscheck," Baroni recently told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "I'm staying in shape. When anybody gets hurt, Koscheck's raising his hand. He wants to fight him. There are guys not as good as Koscheck, not ranked as high as Koscheck, that he can't do that against. I'll be the poor-man's Josh Koscheck.

Great attitude, but I can't see him as very successful....wrestling and striking are decent but the UFC is not the place to have bad showings....2 losses and he's gone. If he wants to stick around he needs a 3 fight win streak for sure. Phil is just to dang inconsistant.

He'll never even be a "Vagabond's Koscheck".

At least he is being realistic and has the right attitude. If he's someone the UFC can call upon anytime he might be more valuable than I thought. That said he'll still need to win more often than not.

Might be foolish, but I'm picking him to win tomorrow night. Just not a big fan of Amir.

I picked Amir, but for some reason I see Baroni beating him. I'm not a big Amir believer either
