    I see many similarities between them, hilariously giant jock douche bags who you can't help but root for, both had amateur boxing backgrounds, both brawlers that are physical strong with knock out power, rough upbringings and weren't elite fighters but had enough toughness and skills to give them a run for their money whilst beating some okay opposition along the way.

    Baroni was much better than Perry ever will be.

    At least Perry doesn't completely gas out 1 minute into the fight like Baroni always did

    Big Baroni fan here, I often made the comparison...it'll be sad when Perry's chin goes just as Phil's did.

    I’d be fine with Perry claiming to be the second best eva.

    I don’t know about that. Baroni has a losing record and 90 percent of the fighters he beat don’t have Wikipedia pages.

    That's fair. Love both guys, but I don't understand how a guy in Mike Perry's position is still so bad at fighting. What does this guy do during training camp???

    Huh. Baroni never beat anyone of relevance and was like a side show WWE comedy act.

    If anything Perry is a tatted up Don Frye in a time where the competition isn’t filled with one dimensional cans

    Similar comparison. Baroni relied on his wrestling a lot more than Mike does.

    Baroni would gas out after the first round in every fight. However, EVERYONE gassed out quick in those days. Now no one seems to gas out. Probably because everyones on PED's now.
