It would just be wrong if the second episode of Pistols and Predictions didn’t include this classic Urban Dictionary entry on Phil Baroni:
“Phil Baroni is arguably the greatest showman in the history of human fighting. He is the New York Bad Ass and he represents the coolest faction in the fight scene, Hammer House (never bet the house against the Hammer House!). He wears a beautiful robe and sunglasses worth more than the average man’s life. He enjoys dancing to the ring and yelling at referees for touching his hair. He has big muscles and likes to show them off much to the asian/island women’s delight while wearing nothing but daisy dukes. The Baroni style of fighting consists of jiving around for a few seconds then promptly storming in and punching the opponent as hard as possible in the head until they are rendered unconscious; it is time tested and proven highly effective. There is also video evidence of Baroni mocking his opponents screams of pain during post-match interviews. Phil Baroni has a great amateur wrestling background but he refuses to use it because he is a showman and knows what the people want to see. Punching. And lots of it. Phil Baroni has claimed on more than one occasion that he is the greatest fighter in his weight class, which is a no brainer, but Baroni is too humble to say what most everyone else believes, that he is the greatest fighter in any weight class…ever. He also was a male stripper at a go-go bar.”
The above paragraph will hopefully prepare you for the next seven minutes of your life as Phil Baroni heads down to The Gun Store to make his picks for UFC 145: Jones Vs. Evans. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, then you’ll be impressed by Phil’s match picking abilities (especially the main event) in Pistols and Predictions Episode 2. Please, pop the cork, pour yourself a glass, let it breathe a bit, then…Enjoy.
