Remember this?

Back in July of 2008, UFC veteran Phil Baroni made a successful drop to welterweight as he scored a highlight reel one-punch knockout victory over Scott Jansen at the “Cage Rage 27: Step Up” event which took place at Wembley Arena in London.

A few moments after landing the massive right hand on his opponent the “New York Bad Ass” went back to check on the condition of Jansen. It was at that time that Scott’s brother came in and attacked Baroni with a headbutt.

Baroni took the high road at the event’s conclusion stating the following about the incident.

“These things happen,” Baroni told Cage Rage after the fight. “It must be tough to see a loved one get knocked out like that. Emotions ran high. I wanted to put this behind me.”
