    Baroni is not really a douche bag, just a running joke among some mmanewsforums members.

    Baroni personality wise is a douche. Thats my opinion on him. As a fighter I say this is good for him. At least he still has it in him to fight.

    You aren't the only one who is missing something.

    It's not hate. It's an inside joke. It's not even funny, so don't blame me if you don't laugh.

    One time, Mac [an admin here] stated Baroni was a douchebag. Sakara= got worked up about it. At the time, it was distracting, but hardly worth reliving.

    Baroni is just ducking Askren! J/k and ironic since bellator signed him.

    So his douchebaggyness is so high it even transends to Bellator for signing him?

    Makes internet sense to me.

    Been watching the NY Badass since Toughman. Hope he wins and gets a shot at the tourney. One last hurrah for the Badass, hell with Askren gone, he could win the damn thing.....ok not likely but shit it would be nice for him to end his career as champion of the #2 American Promotion.

    With the infractions for fighter bashing during the Vitrtor Belfotrt post, any handed out here? "douche" or "douche bag" has caused it to be given out in the past.

    I thought it was okay because that was his persona, just like its okay to call Chael a heel.

    Is Baroni a douche in real life? I don't know. I've never met him. Could be the coolest, nicest person ever. But he definitely plays a douche on TV.
