Baroni deserved to be cut and didnt deserve to be signed to UFC. Amir's gonna send him back to the bush leagues after this one. Didnt Dana once tell Baroni to retire? Its a joke that this guy is welcomed back while McCrory sits at home on his ass with no job anymore.

If nothing else, Amir is a very smart and tactiful fighter. Coming off a loss, he should play this fight smart and take Baroni down and submit him in the 1st round.

Baroni is honestly going to KO the crap out of Amir...

Amir really isn't good...then again Baroni isn't either, but i see a better chance in Baroni winning.

baroni is way to strong for amir imo.

even if amir does get the takedown i dont see him being able to hold baroni down.

im going with baroni by KO

I think this is a very TUF fight to call. Amir is a god fighter with a lot of potential. Phil is a walking PR nightmare but has noteable wins and can be a dangerous opponent. I wish the UFC had gotten Smokin Joey Villasenor instead of the NYBA.

I definitely agree with that. I wasn't too impressed with Villasenor's last performance, but outside of that he's been phenomenal. Definitely deserves a shot on the big stage IMO
