Phil Baroni was in the Philippines this morning to fight Nobutatsu Suzuki at ONE FC 9: Rise to Power. And he might have needed a little help rising from the mat after this finish. Seemingly nothing out of the ordinary, right? If you were expecting a bloody NSFW knockout, go back and try to pinpoint the exact moment The New York Bad Ass’s ankle went into north/south position.
Back in March, Baroni was candid about his waning fight career:
I don’t know what the fuck I’m going to do when I’m done. Where do old fighters go to die? It’s meant a lot of things to me being a fighter – some great and others terrible, heart breaking. I’d like to win a title in ONE FC – that would be icing on the cake. I’d also like to fight in the UFC again. I’d like to fight in NY and get a fucking Win.
Love or hate the NYBA, it’s tough to see an old dog go out on a janky ankle.
