Phil Baroni Signs Multi-Fight Deal with Titan FC
By FCF Staff
Not surprisingly, it didn’t take long for recent UFC exile Phil Baroni to find a new home, as Titan Fighting Championship has announced that it has signed the aggressive and charismatic veteran to a multi-fight agreement.
“Since Phil’s departure from the UFC, many fight fans have been wondering what Phil’s next move would be. I am proud to announce that Phil has signed a multi-fight deal with Titan and will be featured during our March event,” Titan Fighting CEO Joe Kelly stated in the official announcement. “Phil has a star quality to him that so few fighters have and win or lose he has always fought with a true warrior’s mentality.”
“I’m very happy and excited to re-start my career with Titan Fighting in Kansas City,” said Baroni. “I have another chapter to write and it starts March 25. The best NYBA ‘eva is fighting for Titan… People love a comeback.”
Baroni (13-13) was recently released by the UFC following his first round, stoppage loss to BradTavares on January 1st. The loss was Baroni’s third in a row after the 34 year-old-fighter was also defeated by Amir Sadollah and Joe Riggs, the latter who he faced while competing for Strikeforce.
Baroni’s last win came in September, 2008, when he scored a unanimous decision victory over Olaf Alfonso, to extend his winning streak at the time to three.
No opponent for Baroni’s March 25th, Titan FC debut has been determined yet.
The promotion’s next event takes place on January 28th, and will feature former UFC heavyweight champ Tim Sylvia vs. Abe Wagner in the main event.
