Try as he might, Phil Baroni hasn’t been able to cut it in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. In two stints with the promotion, he has amassed a record of 3-7 in his 10 trips to the Octagon.
Following losses in his last two attempts in the UFC, losing by unanimous decision to Amir Sadollah and TKO to Brad Tavares, Baroni was handed his walking papers.
Baroni has been fighting for more than a decade with a mediocre record of 13-13.
Thirty-four years old and looking to put his career on the right track, Baroni has already signed with a new fight promotion, less than two weeks following his UFC dismissal.
The Titan Fighting Championship on Wednesday announced that it reached a multi-fight agreement with Baroni.
“Since Phil’s departure from the UFC, many fight fans have been wondering what Phil’s next move would be. I am proud to announce that Phil has signed a multi-fight deal with Titan and will be featured during our March event,” Titan Fighting CEO Joe Kelly stated.
“Phil has a star quality to him that so few fighters have and win or lose he has always fought with a true warrior’s mentality.”
Baroni is scheduled to debut for Titan on its March 25 show in Kansas City against an opponent yet to be determined.
“I’m very happy and excited to re-start my career with Titan Fighting in Kansas City,” said Baroni. “I have another chapter to write and it starts March 25.”
The timing didn’t quite work out to get Baroni onto Titan’s next fight card, which takes place Jan. 28 in Kansas City, Kan., and is slated to air live on HDNet. The Jan. 28 fight card features former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia in the evening’s main event.
