    A SOFT SPOKEN BARONI HAS PLENTY TO SAY ON MMAWEEKLY RADIO


    Phil Baroni appeared on Monday's MMAWeekly Radio Show as himself rather than the character of "The New York Bad Ass," but Baroni can be pretty controversial even when he's just being himself.

    Baroni said that he considers himself the "top dog" in the UFC's middleweight division now that Matt Lindland knocked himself out. Lindland has beaten Baroni in the Octagon on two occasions, but Baroni still said, "Lindland is good at what he does, but I don't really think he's going anywhere. He's not a championship-level fighter. He's a good competitor but now a world class fighter."

    Baroni said that he has defeated better fighters than Matt Lindland, specifically Dave Menne and Amar Suloev. Baroni also took more of a personal shot at Lindland by saying, "He needs to realize that this isn't an amateur wrestling match. He wants to know why he's on the prelims and why he has no fans? It's because he's boring and no one cares about him."

    When asked to name the top-ranked five or six middleweights in his opinion, Phil Baroni listed them in the following order (starting with #1): Murilo Bustamante, Dan Henderson, Phil Baroni, Dave Menne, Amar Suloev, and Matt Lindland. Baroni said that Menne is the toughest guy in the division, and pointed out that he has already beaten Menne.

    When asked about up-and-coming middleweight David Loiseau, Baroni said he doesn't think Loiseau brings much to the table in terms of being able to hurt him. Baroni also commented on two heavyweight fighters. He confirmed that Ricco Rodriguez filed a restraining order against him and called it a "smart move" on Ricco's part, and he also said that Frank Mir doesn't really have anyone good to train with.

    Baroni thinks that Mir needs to go to a different training center if he wants to reach his full potential. (Baroni used to train in the same facility before leaving under controversial circumstances.)

    Phil Baroni also said that he might one day move up to the 205-pound weight class, due to the fact that he sometimes cuts weight from as much as 225 pounds down to the middleweight division's limit of 185 pounds.

    Baroni was planning to fight Chuck Liddell for the Light-Heavyweight Title if he beat Lindland, but that plan went out the window when he lost to Lindland. Baroni said that he could move up to light-heavyweight anytime he wants, but he would first like to win the Middleweight Title (which doesn't even exist right now) and clean out the division. Baroni also said that he might be interested in doing pro wrestling after he retires from MMA somewhere down the road.

    "due to the fact that he sometimes cuts weight from as much as 225 pounds down to the middleweight division's limit of 185 pounds"

    No one can cut that much weight.
    Baroni is nothing but ripped muscle at 185.
    All the fats gone. I don't think he's is getting rid of 20lbs of muscle to get to 205.

    Omega:
    I meant to make 205 he'd more than likely be carrying extra fat. I don't think its muscle mass he is cutting to make 185.

    Would you fight in a division that you were in soley due to your belly :)

    Well, two weeks ago I was 173, right now I'm 158 and ate two 6-inch subs today to stop the descent (I compete at 150-159.9). Didn't even need to cut any water, just meal modification. Cutting weight is just one of those things you gotta do to be competitive. Just depends on how bad you want to win. Personally, I like winning, so I cut.

    "Go cry about it Vargas. Aren't you late for your shift at McDonald's?"
    "I had once talked to Billy Conn, the boxer, about professionals versus amateurs - specifically street fighters. One had always heard rumors of champions being taken out by back-alley fighters. Conn was scornful. "Aw, it's like hitting a girl," he said. "They're nothing."
