    Ariel Helwani: Were you happy with your performance against Hose?

    Phil Baroni: What the f— do you think? Was I happy with my performance against Hose? What are you retarded?

    Ariel Helwani: Who's the better fighter Hose or Rua?
    Phil Baroni: Come on man, who do you think? Rua. Ask Rampage or Henderson who's better. Those guys won questionable split decisions against Rua. Rua has fought the best in the biggest shows and held his own. Hose is a tough kid but he still has a lot to prove. He needs to rematch me and show his fans and the world he is for real

    Ariel Helwani: What did you think of Frank Shamrock's performance against Cung Le?
    Phil Baroni: I think he won the first round. I think he hurt Cung in the third (round). Watching the fight I kept thinking to myself: "how the fuck did I lose to that guy." I'm so much better than him.

    Ariel Helwani: You've trained with Kimbo Slice before, what are your thoughts on him?
    Phil Baroni: He is a big, black, tough motherfucker. Could it be anymore obvious?

    Kala is a tough kid an has a ton of heart.

    But I feel he has to fight me when I'm in shape.

    He knows I did him an TJ a huge favor jumping in last min to fight in the main event of ICON for the title. Without me there wouldn't have even been a show March 22

    Nobody wanted to fight the guy on short notice.


    So I stepped up. Last min. I saw it as a challenge and an opportunity

    I sized him up an thought I could get him out of there in one round.

    I didn't an paid the price.

    For five fucking rounds.

    I just feel to be the real ICON champ an call his win over me legit he has to beat me when I'm at my best.

    No excuse I took the fight, I underestimated the kid.

    I like Kala and we are friends. He is a tough mother fucker, all Hawaii's top fighters are.

    I gave him a shot, If he is the real Icon Champ he should rematch me after I beat Ninja.

    I'm not saying he isn't a real champion. But a real champion would want to fight me again, an prove his win wasn't a fluke.

    Look at Serra.

    an that's just my .02

    PS A funny side note. I didn't know the fight was five rnds until after I got back to my corner 15 minutes in. I was like what the fuck man you got to be kidding me Coleman. But to be honest Nobody including me thought it would go 5 anyway.

    Now let me focus on Killing Ninja, after that all this can be settled in the ICON ring....

    really?

    seems like he's chilled out a lot since leaving Hammer House, and he was pretty respectful in this interview

    i think he's come a long way from " BARONI...SMASH!" days

    he praised Rua and Hose, and considering his beef with Shamrock, his analysis of Shamrock/Le was pretty unbiased
