Phil Baroni may be 0-2 in his last two fights, but everyone at MiddleEasy thinks he’s just another victim of the ‘Sunglasses Indoors’ jinx. You’ve heard it before from us. Essentially, any fighter that wears sunglasses while weighing in or walking to the cage will dramatically increase their chances of losing the bout. It’s just a phenomena that we discovered and since then, its been surprisingly accurate. We also invented the dreaded ‘Eminem Curse,’ which states that any fighter that comes out to Eminem as their walk-out song are almost always guaranteed to lose. We sincerely believe that if Baroni removes the sunglasses gimmick from his pre-fight ritual and deletes every Eminem song from his iPod, he’ll bounce back in no time.
Check out what The New York Bad Ass stated on the Sherdog forums earlier today regarding his TKO loss to Chris Holland in Ring of Fire 43: Bad Blood this past weekend.
Hey look guys I went in the ROF cage fought and lost. I have no excuse. I didnt respect my opponent or his punching power. I paid for dearly for it. Im really dumb and I have no excuse for losing and not having the proper prep. I was in India, NY, Vegas, San Jose, training with dif teams and at dif gyms. I never had a set camp, I wasnt focused. I was going by the mirror telling myself I was in shape and ready not by my performance in the gym. Yes this was a bad L, it cost me a fight in ONE FC with Roger Huerta You think I would have learned this lesson before as I have made the mistake on a few occasions. Look Im not perfect, Im not on here saying im unbeatable or any of that. Im a guy like you who trains for a challenge accepts it and takes it head on. I been thinking a lot how its going to be a long road back from this to anyplace I want to be. So today I stopped thinking and am out the door to Drysdales in Las Vegas . No more time to waste thinking or regretting. Time to head out on the long road and start walking. — NYBA
As we mentioned in the Sunday Morning Rumor Mill yesterday, it appears that it’s now confirmed that Baroni will not be taking on Roger Huerta in this month’s upcoming ONE FC: Destiny of Warriors due to his loss against Chris Holland. Bummer.
