Welterweight Phil Baroni released by Strikeforce; reportedly "likely" to sign with UFC

Originally posted on MMAjunkie.com

Following a June defeat at the hands of Joe Riggs, welterweight slugger Phil Baroni (13-11) was today officially released from his contract with Strikeforce.

Baroni fought just twice for the organization, compiling an 0-2 record.

Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker said he wasn't ruling out a future relationship with the "New York Bad Ass," providing Baroni can put together a win streak in the welterweight division.

"We wish Phil the best of luck and hope he can revive his career," Coker said. "If he can, maybe one day he can return and fight for us."
