This is a great fight, I hope that this really goes down. I dont know why exactly but I like Baroni in this one. Cant really rationalize it, just do. War Baroni!!!

IMO Baroni has a good chance on this one, if he catches Ninja with a big punch i think it will be lights out for ninja, especially since both arent that technical, but still i see Ninja whetering the storm, and subbing Baroni late in the first, or Mid second.

This is gonna be a war and I will actually go with Baroni in this fight. He'
ll just have to fight like Lawler and I think he can eventually catch Ninja like Robbie.

Didn't Phil "The Jabroni" Baroni (btw, sorry for using one of "the rock's" quotes...just seems to fit good with what i now think of baroni) just get KO'd by Kala Hose??? i'm pretty sure he's got no chance to win this one... or for that matter any other fight he signs on for

He lost to Hose but i wouldnt say he got schooled. There is an area between a close fight and a blowout and that match fell somewhere in between.

As for this fight, ninja by 2nd round sub

He did Loose, But IMO is he had anything resembling a Gas tank he would have easily won, he schooled Hose in the first, but As always Baroni is Gassed by the second, and just seems to stand there and take the shots to entertain the crowd. as mentioned before, Baroni is a true entertainer, too bad that doesnt win him fights.

Ninja needs to make sure the gas tank is full and this will be easy for him. 2nd rd sub.

I think some people are forgetting that Phil Baroni is "The Best Eva ! "

jk but Phil needs to tweak a lot of his training if he wants to win this one. He relys too much on a quick KO in all of his fights and it never happens half the time. He needs to train with like the Militech camp to work on cardio since Hughes and Sylvia never gas and there two big guys like Phil.

As long as Ninja doesn't get knocked out in the first two minutes, I think Ninja should win this rather easily by a submission or a TKO stoppage late in the second round or early in the third round. I just think Ninja is the better fighter overall while Baroni always has a puncher's chance.
