    *****This is a Q&A for former UFC, Pride, Strikeforce & Bellator veteran Middle & Welterweight, Phil Baroni! He will answer your questions via video(which will be posted when made). So ask away & keep it respectful & clean otherwise dubs or bans will be handed out.*****



    Phil Baroni is one of the true veterans of the sport. He had his very first pro fight all the way back in 2000. A fight in which he won in only 35 seconds.

    [​IMG]

    Phil holds a 15-18 pro MMA record & has fought around the world against many great opponents including the likes of Matt Lindland, Evan Tanner, Dave Menne, Amir Suloev, Pete Sell, Minowaman, Ryo Chonan, Yuki Kondo, Kazuo Misaki, Frank Shamrock, Joey Villasenor, Olaf Alonso, Joe Riggs, Amir Sadollah, Brad Tavares, Yoshiyuki Yoshida, Hayato Sakurai & Karo Parisyan. Phil isn't one who likes to leave it in the hands of the judges as only 3 of his wins have gone to decision.

    Hey Phil, do you have any interest in coming out of retirement to compete for Rizin over in Japan? A Pride guy like yourself would definitely be welcomed there, and you could soccer kick and stomp and smash people over there for sure.

    Even if you don't fight, what about taking Joe Warren's spot on the microphone? We'd be glad to have you back in the booth at least.

    Hi Phil, what do you think of the current efforts in unionization and bringing the Ali act to MMA? And are you in support of any particular union/association - MMAAA, MMAFA, PFA?

    Mr Baroni.
    Would you like to have a fight in
    Rizin Fighting Federation?
    If so who would you like to fight?

    I would be down to pay good money to see you fight Krazy Horse.

    Who hits harder? You or a bread truck?

    Who's the best evah?

    Serious question, was training in the early days serious and you just not have the added value of the 20+ years guys now do, or did you just show up play around and try to 'figure it out'

    Hi Phil! Let me preface this by saying you are indeed, The Best Eva

    Platinum Mike Perry has drawn a lot of comparisons to you, what do you think of him and how far do you think he can go?

    And second question, who are some of your favorite fighters ever?

    I remember watching a documentary on you before one of your recent fights where you were training at AKA. DC was talking about not going hard to avoid getting hurt and he mentioned you having a lot of setbacks throughout your career.

    What kind of injuries did you face, when and during what moments in your career. Always interested in what us fans don't hear about...Thanks Phil.

    I am serious with this question, it may already have been answered so he might not need to answer it.

    What do you think of wmma in the ufc? and Ronda Rousey and her downfall
    The ufc sale/did he expect the Fertittas would sell the ufc around this time or did he think they wouldn't sell it at all or at least till 2020
    thoughts on Goldberg getting fired and chuck/hughes losing their job for life even though that was only under zuffa so that cant be too surprising
    Joe Silva also gone


    This is all one question HI, make sure you fit it in!

    How do you manage to be so badass? Were you born badass or did you have to work on it?

    What is your proudest moment from your MMA career?

    A few years ago a friend and I met you in Dublin at UFC 93. My friend asked you which was your favourite fight that you participated in and he said he liked your fight with Frank Shamrock in Strikeforce. Personally I couldn't beleive he said that given how it ended but you were pretty cool about it and just said "Yeah...That wasn't my favourite one".

    We laughed about it later as in wasn't Baroni pretty cool in his response.

    My question is which was your actual personal favourite fight that you participated in?
