Video: Phil Baroni talks One FC, the Philippines and cockfighting

"The New York Badass" is trying to reverse recent history.

And he's hoping to do it by channeling his old days in Japan. While Phil Baroni may have a 1-5 record in his last six fights, the 36 year old had a pretty successful stint in Pride Fighting Championships earlier in his career, going 4-2 in the famous Japanese promotion.

The American Kickboxing Academy veteran is already in the Philippines training and preparing for his upcoming One FC: Pride of a Nation fight against Rodrigo Ribeiro this Friday (August 31, 2012) and he took to YouTube to answer some questions about his fight, Manila and even the popular (and legal) local sport of cockfighting.

Check out what he had to say above via Mike Swick's official YouTube channel.

Do you think the 36 year old Baroni can turn back father time for one more fight, or is he just a stepping stone for one of One FC's brightest prospects?
