You know when we found out that “The New York Bad Ass” was returning to the Mixed Martial Arts cage after an almost four year hiatus, the MiddleEasy crew was fucking pumped.
And now that we finally unearthed footage of Phil Baroni’s victorious return, we are on cloud fucking nine. Check out “Da Best Eva” crack and swarm Matt Lagler until the referee saw enough.

Apparently, the San Diego crowd was there to support Matt Lagler and didn’t take to kindly to Baroni fucking his day up. Some fans decided to throw bottles into the cage during the post-fight interview. In the immortal words of Ron Burgundy, stay classy, San Diego.

The hostilities continued in the casino hotel floor later that night, where fans camped out to boo Phil Baroni. Why the fuck this would be happening is beyond me, but I guess the crowd consisted of the worst people in the San Diego metro area.
After seeing this. yeah. pic.twitter.com/1a6wOyHRZp

Huge congratulations to Phil Baroni, though. Nothing better than seeing Long Island’s finest export back to cracking skulls. With Phil Baroni back to knocking fools out, all is right with the MMA world.
