Baroni comments on the fight.
“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.”
The loss also had a knock on effect for Baroni as he was knocked out he is now out of his scheduled fight with Roger Huerta which was set for later in the month at ONE FC: Destiny of Warriors.Tags: featured, mma, MMA NEWS, Phil Baroni, Ring of Fire
