Bellator has released Phil Baroni after one bout with the promotion.

MMAFighting.com first reported the news on Wednesday, and Sherdog.com subsequently confirmed Baroni’s release with a Bellator official.

“The New York Bad Ass” made his promotional debut at Bellator 122, falling to Karo Parisyan via technical knockout 2:06 into the opening frame. It was the fifth loss in six outings for the American Kickboxing Academy representative, who sat out most of the past year after suffering a gruesome ankle injury at One FC 9.

Baroni appeared to allude to his release via Twitter earlier in the day:

Baroni, 38, is a veteran of 33 professional fights. He has competed for a number of organizations over the course of his career, including the UFC, Strikeforce and Pride.
