    That's strange.

    Phil was on was on Adam Hunter's podcast a few months back and he was bragging that before being in the UFC he was a personal trainer.

    He would charge $100 an hour (mostly women), then many of them wanted to be shagged by him along the way.

    That's what he did in order to sign them up for another 10 sessions...of either shagging and/or training.

    If I do the math correctly that's a lot of dough even in you only work 5 hours a day...

    Since he is still in OK shape compared with the average cubicle worker, I guess he could to that. At his age, he would need to think TRT if his ratio shagging/training get out of whack.

    Sounds like this was more story telling to entertain the guys on the podcast than anything else...

    Them saying that they need him to be a personal trainer was just an excuse to get banged by him. The truf.

    But yeah, that seems like a good job.

    Phil did a great video a year or two ago about how he was on this giant billboard in Vegas but yet he was so broke and driving this fucked up old car with stuff that didn't work (like the window had to be taped shut and would roll down when he hit bumps in the road) and he was bringing his gym clothes in garbage bags and stuff like that.

    So either Phil Baroni really is that broke e or he is putting a lot of effort into keeping up that image, I'd go with the former. There are places the money could go (especially in vegas) gym fees, coaches, parties, duct tape..... stuff costs money.

    It's not hard to go broke pursuing a career as a pro athlete.

    MMA is a young sport but it's the same as boxing in a few years there will be a ton of retired fighters with brain damage or huge debts it's no different than boxing

    Classical example how the sport has evolved. Baroni was never able to keep up.

    If you read through his interviews he will tell you that he has an alcohol and gambling problem which cost him much money and the success in MMA. He admitted it several times.

    Seriously. If i had a friend doing it I'd suggest to find a way to save while you're making it, but not all fighters, probably the vast majority of fighters, don't make enough to last their lifetimes.

    Phil Baroni is the champion of poor decision making, so that's not surprising

    He should just release a totally honest autobiography and he would be well off.

    It's not how much you make, it's how much you spend.

    He certainly lived the right place for an alcoholic gambler.

    It has to be this. I never understood why Baroni was so damn inconsistent. He was a very good athlete, physially gifted with a ton of explosiveness, and he actually came from respectable wrestling ad striking background b4 MMA (not talking about tough man). And it has to be this that explins his money problems as well. Because Phil was one of the UFC's biggest stars in the early 2000s. He co mained against Lindland, had a part time commentating gig with them, and was on he main card for the vast majority of his fights. Than when he switched to PRIDE it was when PRIDE was paying very well they were running full speed ahead. And then he was a big part of launching Stikeforce. Too bad for Phil that sucks.

    I don't think he has the level of fame to do that and make serious money. But he could call it "I Could'a Been the Best Eva. The Phil Baroni Story."

    Mt guess is that the interest on his huge debts are getting to him. He' not making the same money he used to and I'm sure it's difficult to chance his way of life. Happens to a lot of people, both in and out of professional sports. Easy for everyone to shit on him when something similar have never happened to you.
