“The New York Bad Ass” sounds off about Frank Shamrock and the fight between the two that is now in jeopardy
Phil Baroni isn’t one for mincing words. In the past, he has used them brazenly to call out opponents and get under their skin and berate anything or anyone that got in his way. Now, he’s simply using them to get a lot of frustration off his chest.
The beginning of 2007 finds “The New York Badass” entangled in one of the most bizarre episodes in the history of mixed martial arts. On December 8th, former UFC middleweight champion, Frank Shamrock, officially announced to 8,700 fans on hand for Strikeforce’s “Triple Threat” fight card in San Jose, California, that both he and Baroni had officially signed agreements to face one another during a Strikeforce card set for sometime in April.
