The California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) voted today to reduce Phil “New York Badass” Baroni’s suspension for steroids, from one year to six months. Phil Baroni will now be able to fight as of December 22.

Baroni tested positive for steroids following his fight with Frank Shamrock at Strikeforce Judgment Day on June 22. Frank Shamrock defeated Baroni by TKO, (Rear Naked Choke). The choke caused Baroni to loose consciousness, ending the fight in the second round.
