Baroni is Out of UFC 118

Written on August 02, 2010 by Clive Wilson

Phil Baroni posted a tweet that sent a different message from the one he delivered in June. It is a depressed and anguished voice we heard. We could only think of one thing to which we can attribute this: the accomplished wrestler is now out of UFC 118.

“It [my previous fight] was a do-or-die. This fight I’m not going to look at it that way. I’m going to go there and enjoy it and not put the pressure on myself.”

This felt like a war cry from Phil George Baroni when he was interviewed on The MMA Hour in June. That was when the wrestling warrior still qualified to ensue a battle head-on against John Salter. Unfortunately the war cry is giving way to an anguished cry, as Baroni has been forced to relinquish the fight because of a collarbone condition.

Deciding to move up to middleweight, “The New York Bad Ass” started working out to strengthen himself and improve his skills in Thailand way back in November, after a unanimously voted loss against Amir Sadollah at UFC 116. Barely a time after he got back up, he gets another blow from the forced pulling-out.

His recent tweet gives an idea of how he is faring through the situation:

“I cant take it anymore. Im freaking out. anxiety im shot. beaten [sic].”

Meanwhile, first reported that Dan Miller agreed to go on a face-off with John Salter. This was confirmed by Dan Constantino of AMA Fight Club through another report, this time by MMA Fighting.
