Bellator Cuts Phil Baroni For Supporting 'War Machine'


Phil Baroni had been steadfast in his support of "War Machine" on social media, even though his old friend and protege is facing awful domestic violence charges in connection to an alleged attack on former girlfriend, Christy Mack. You can read all about that and much more right here. Baroni, meanwhile, was taking some time off after suffering a first round technical knockout loss to Karo Parisyan at Bellator 122. It marked the third consecutive defeat for "New York Bad Ass," who has dropped eight of his 10 most recent matches dating back to 2009. Fair play on behalf of Bellator or was Baroni already on his way out based on his recent professional (not social) struggles? Either way, it's crystal clear new Bellator boss, Scott Coker, ain't playing.
