    I was on vacation and picked up a Muscle Mag to read in the car, it had this big artical about Craig Titus and Phil Baroni and the beef that they have. Muscle Mag said that Phil claimed he would put 14k of his own cash to set up a UFC fight between the 2, Titus agreed to any UFC deal that Baroni comes up with. The funniest part of the artical, was when they had a picture of Craig Titus doing a side tricep pose, and they compared the picture with Phil Baroni in MMA shorts/gloves doing a all muscular pose, like saying "Look at how big titus is compared to him", i figured since its a muscle mag they think that size has a big importance? :dunno: It would be funny if this fight happened, Phil would pretty much give titus a new face.

    I fucking hate that faggot, Baroni. He sucks more ass than Tito.

    If he's so badass, ship him to Pride and lets see Wanderlei rape him.

    being as big as titus is will be huge disadvantage during a 5:00 round. Seriously I don't care how good of shape titus gets in he will still have to caryy 230+ around at 5'9''. Baroni's subs are pretty much non existant so there is a chance that titus would catch him with a haymaker....but not much of one. Titus should fight a heavyweight at least....its a no win for him otherwise.

    He moved to Bushido and is 2-0 and beat 2 very good fighters, his last win coming from Ryo Chonan. I do agree that he does talk a lot of shit, but setting someone who has a good wrestling/standup background, to a 300lb. bodybuilder would just be hilarious. The amount of cardio and conditioning involved in a fight would be impossible for Titus to achieve.

    And Wanderlei has about 15-20lbs on Baroni, not to mention like 30+ more fights and the TOP school training him, so thats kinda ignorant to compare the two.



    For the guy that wanted the pic..Baroni on the left beating Chonan

    Baroni>Titus. I doubt it will hapen though, if Phil fights in the Lightweight GP Pride wont let him pull any bullshit, as to not get him injured.

    I really hope titus fucks him up, just to show everyone that muscle mass != decreased speed/agility.

    if titus gets his hands on him its over, but baroni can put anyones lights out with one punch, being huge doesnt help your face, esp against baronis fists. Although his mouth can win fights alone, big mouthed fuckstick

    kevin levorne at 250 contest shape would blow anyone in here away in the 100...he lost to the fastest man currently but not by much, and coleman at 300 does splits..if I was 150 i couldnt do one. The whole slow/agile thing is a myth and nothing else. Ya some are slow, they were slow before they were big too im sure. I dont how many times I shut some one up when they said I couldnt beat them in a race or I couldnt last a round in a fight.

    Id have to disagree, Titus cannot learn decent standup in a few months, his punches will be hail marry's, even if titus got a mount, he would have no clue how to defend against a sweep, i mean titus is strong and all, but he is at such a huge disadvantage, and to make things worse, going against someone who is known for KO power.

    The only problem is, in grappling, titus will have the ability to overpower him. If I were baroni, I would keep my distance.

    grappling he could break baroni in half, I dont give a fuck what anyone says, I have had my fair share with "NHB" fighters and once I had my hands on them they were either through a table or flying through the air. Unless there Like NHB's size at 280 there in trouble.

    Then again baronis a fast fuck and wont let that happen. One good punch, lights out most likley

    if being muscle bound was true, then all of our professional sports programs in the US wouldnt have all their athletes hittin the weights hard, look at some of the guys in the NBA now, they are gettin pretty beefy for bein so tall.

    Grappling is about leverage, not strength :slap: I mean lets say Titus got mount, you honstly think that he can pass guard to side mount and get a Keylock or something?

    lol @ the ignorance in this thread


    I know a 150 pound guy who could teabag everyone here all day long. He smokes and drinks and doesn't lift weights. Grappling is about so much more than size or strength.

    the major MMA leagues have plenty of guys 230 & under that would likely destroy titus. But with baroni & his lack of cardio & ground game... lets just say that he's not the best representative of MMA.

    If were talkin 185lbs (baroni's weight).... evan tanner, rich franklin, & jeremy horn :noes:

    and lets not even get started on the killers that are at the 205 weight class.

    Leverage is important, but simple physics will tell you that leverage can be overpowered by greater force.

    I am not saying that a good grappler couldn't easily take down titus, but baroni, by nature, isn't a grappler which will work to his disadvantage. He is a wrestler, but not trained in jiu jitsu. If titus has some knowledge of grappling, he will likely be better on the ground. Titus is much stronger and heavier, so he will have a natural advantage on the ground.
