If you are reading this Victor Cui, you need to get Phil Baroni behind the mic with Bas and the other gentleman whose name escapes me at the next One FC show. If The New York Badass isn’t fighting that is. Sure, an exciting fight like the one you are about to see between a reformed War Machine and an always handsome Roger Huerta makes it easy for a commentator like Baroni to have a great performance, but I don’t care, he’s awesome. You know what? I’m changing this article midway through to address Dana White as well. Phil Baroni should, no, must be placed solo behind the mic at all future UFC shows. Seat him directly behind the octagon posts just like at this Ultimate Warrior Fighting event while void of any type of monitor. This will enable Baroni to use his natural charisma while free roaming about cage side, directing the production crew to point the cameras at the ring girls’ butts just like he did on Saturday. Watch the welterweight action and the highly entertaining Baroni below.

Roger Huerta took to his Facebook page to explain the strange ending to the fight.
“Hey guys, thx again for the messages. So Yeah, left the hospital earlier this morning and it’s a broken rib. Happened in the scramble when I ended up in half guard late in the 3rd round. Thought I could hold him there but it was to painful. I should of called it off there but I guess my stubbornness in not calling it got the best of me. sorry guys…
You know, I’m not sure what’s going on…I was winning this fight till the rib broke(or at least I felt this). It wasn’t like he punched it and broke it. It just gave out and I couldn’t breath. Weirdest thing. My hats off to him though. It was a good fight all in all. But again thank you guys deeply for the nice messages and for your support. Hope you guys enjoyed the fight either way”
