We reported earlier this week here on MMAmania.com that Phil “The New York Badass” Baroni (10-10) was moving down to the welterweight division for the first time ever and would compete on the Cage Rage: “Step Up” card on July 12.

Today, his opponent, Scott Jansen (3-2), was revealed. In addition, the 170-pound fight will be featured as the main event of the evening.

Jansen is a hometown English-born fighter who has competed mostly in the Cage Rage “Contenders” shows. He should make for an exciting match up for Baroni because he’s never gone the distance. And all three of his wins have come via technical knockouts and his two losses are by submissions.

Clearly, Jansen prefers to stand and bang it out with his opponents and has some work to do on his submission defense. I doubt he’ll have to worry too much about defending submissions in this fight, however, because Baroni isn’t known to be much of a jiu-jitsu afficionado himself.

Is this seriously news? Do people still care when Baroni is fighting?

This should be called Cage Rage 27 - SET UP

Baroni is fighting a nobody with less than half a dozen fights!

WAR JANSEN!

I'm not sure many people care about Baroni anymore as a fighter. As a self promoter and a guy that is exciting to watch get beat. I think alot of people still want to see that...lol! I've met the guy personally and he damn entertaining to talk too. But does he have any skills beyond having a huge heart probably not.

Is he really dropping 15 pounds of muscle in that short of time?

I was hoping he'd take more time off to get accustomed to WW.
