Phil Baroni vs. Brad Tavares Tapped For UFC 125


MMANEWS.COM Staff Writer

“The New York Bad Ass” Phil Baroni (13-12) will be making his move back to middleweight soon.

His opponent will be none other than The Ultimate Fighter Alum Brad Tavares.

The two are expected to clash at UFC 125, which we just announced would feature a bout pitting dangerous lightweights Clay “The Carpenter” Guida against Takanori “The Fireball Kid” Gomi.

Brad Tavares sports an undefeated professional record at 6-0, with a single win inside the octagon which came at The Ultimate Fighter 11 Finale.

Baroni meanwhile will look to bounce back from a decision loss to Amir Sadollah at UFC 106.
