The Bad Asses
Both Joey Villasenor and Phil Baroni enjoy performing in quality fights. Elite XC has been incredibly intelligent in choosing fighters who have a track record of fan friendly performances. These fighters, especially Baroni, are outspoken and can promote a fight. Baroni is a bulldozer who can take a beating and keep pressing forward. His style pleases fans and Villasenor, who does not shy away from a challenge, will most likely oblige Baroni in a war on their feet. While Baroni is no longer (and arguably never was) an elite fighter, can still make a bout entertaining in and out of the cage. He has a granite chin and enjoys providing theatrics throughout his fights. Although Villasenor has lost to the likes of Robbie Lawler and Ninja Rua, those fights were extremely easy to watch and this bout should be no different.
