I don't know what the status is in NY as far as legalization but Baroni is a one man promotion machine and if fed a few guys could be hyped for a big fight on a NY card.
But like everyone else, WTF?
I really didn't think about that, hay maybe Dana is much closer than I thought to resolving the issues in New York? That is the only way it makes any sense at all because Phil really has no drawing power as a UFC fighter and for me if he's on a card it's something that would mean less value and not more regardless of who he fights.
Baroni most certainly has drawing power in the ufc, maybe not for you but he is an interesting fighter and brings it when he fights, has a history of popularity with the fans of the ufc and hypes it like crazy, that my friend is drawing power.
Baroni is 5 and 5 in his last ten not 2-8. say what you will about baroni but you cant argue the level of guys he's faced throughout his career (win or lose).
Actually no he doesn't, with the losses on his record and the level of competition in the UFC and the rate the game has changed I think the UFC will be hard pressed to find a way for anyone to get excited about his fights. I would be surprised if half the fans even know who he is. There is nothing interesting about a one dimensional fighter with no cardio especially if he's not winning fights.
I cant believe you just said the "level" he's faced, Im not trying to bash the guy but the level he fought at is so far behind the level of competition in the UFC now its not even debatable not only that but he lost to everyone he's ever fought that was good. 5 and 5 in his last ten fights is a horrible record especially when you factor in who he lost to and where they stand in rankings.
I admire his heart and his willingness to go out there and toss hay makers and I respect anyone who's willing to go out there and compete in MMA but the reality is that he has no business in the UFC with his record and skill set. I think the poll speaks to my opinion or at least that Im not the only one that wants to see competitive fights. Its not about hating on Baroni its about wanting only the most talented fighters or at the very least fighters that can compete on that level.
