UFC 35 UPDATE:
INJURY FORCES "NY BAD-ASS" OUT!


Phil Baroni punching Matt Lindland
Phil Baroni, known for his strong punching and even stronger heart, but could not out do a fracture in his right hand and has been forced to pull out of his upcoming bout in UFC 35. Baroni was to face Eugene Jackson on Friday January 11th at the Mohegan Sun in a middleweight matchup. An old nagging injury finally gave way to a fracture in his right hand while working 3-minute drills of wrestling and kickboxing nonstop. "I was having trouble with my hand for a long time, but I needed to try and work through the pain." It all came to an end while training over the weekend. Baroni’s trainer forced him to get an x-ray of the blown-up hand. "I really didn’t want to go to the doctor because I knew it was bad and didn’t want to hear I wasn’t going to be able to fight," said an upset Baroni. "I was really looking forward to this fight — I had a ton of people coming to see me fight and a lot of fans emailing me every day wishing me well." Baroni will have to lay off the hand for about 6-weeks, but hopes to be able to fight in a UFC in the near future.
