Phil Baroni not fighting in Sengoku??

Sunday 10 February 2008

Five Ounce of Pain reports today that Phil Baroni has signed with EliteXC. His first fight for EliteXC is confirmed and will be agianst Kala Kolohe Hose on March 15. There is no doubt that this would conflict with a fight in Sengoku against Sanae Kikuta.

The problems with having 2 management teams were mentioned on FightOpinion soon after the fight was announced. As you remember there was some controversy around the announcement of Baroni for Sengoku. There is more likely more controversy to come...

It would not be good for Sengoku to lose a fight like that just a month away from their first event.

The card as it looks now:
Sanae Kikuta 26-6-3 vs. 10-8-0 Phil Baroni (?)
Makoto Takimoto 4-3-0 vs. 15-10-0 Evangelista "Cyborg" Santos
Kazuo Misaki 18-8-2 (1NC) vs. 13-1-1 Siyar Bahadurzada
Hidehiko Yoshida 7-5-1 vs. 20-5-0 Josh Barnett

Also participating:
-Ryo Kawamura 7-1-2
-Takanori Gomi 27-3-0
-Fabricio Monteiro (?) 16-6-0
