The New York Badass Phil Baroni will fight Matt Lagler on May 4th

Buckle your seatbelts ladies and gentlemen, the New York Badass is back and will be looking to collect heads. Phil Baroni will be headlining a King of the Cage event May 4th in near San Diego. He’ll be facing Matt Lagler at 185 pounds.

Matt Lagler (12-14) has gone four and four over his last eight fights. He’s been a fixture in the KOTC, Tachi Palace scene and has a pretty big fanbase in Southern California. If nothing else, he will provide a game opponent for Baroni in his comeback fight.

A while back we posted a preview of Baroni’s documentary. We weren’t sure we’d be reporting on him returning to MMA this soon. He’s a welcome addition as he brings flair and excitement¬†to a watered down product.

Phil Baroni (15-18) has been away from active competition for nearly four years. He has lost three consecutive fights and will be looking to make an impact when he returns to the cage. Phil Baroni is a popular fighter and figure. He’s been in and around the pro wrestling scene as of late.

This event will be broadcast in over 50 million U.S. households on MAVTV. MAVTV is currently available on DIRECTV (channel 214), Verizon Fios (channel 810), Comcast, Google Fiber, Time Warner Cable, Charter and hundreds of regional distributors.
