Default Baroni on MMAradio, talks about Sakuraba, Linland, and more.....

From [Link View Has Been Removed. Click Here To Unlock This Content.]

If you missed Friday's show, check it on the radio archive at MMAWeekly.com. Phil Baroni provided one of the most entertaining and informative interviews of the year on Friday's MMAWeekly Radio Show.

Baroni said that he has been training hard and will be ready to go for UFC 45 in November, where he hopes to fight Kazushi Sakuraba. Baroni said that talks between the UFC and Pride regarding the possibility of Sakuraba fighting on UFC 45 have gone well, and he is very hopeful that the fight will take place in November.

Baroni said that he is in amazingly good shape, with more strength than he has ever had in his life and good enough cardio to consistently run three miles in less than 20 minutes. Baroni seemed very excited about fighting Sakuraba at UFC 45, which he said will take place at the Mohegan Sun in Connecticut.

When asked if the UFC is going to be having a UFC Middleweight Title fight for the first time since May 2002, Baroni said that he hopes so and he's getting tired of waiting for the middleweight division "to have a damn champion."

Baroni said that if the UFC doesn't fix the situation soon, he will not hesitate to move up in weight class to light-heavyweight and fight people like Tito Ortiz, Randy Couture, and Chuck Liddell. Baroni would also love to represent the UFC in Pride against fighters like Vanderlei Silva, Quinton Jackson, and Ricardo Arona, in addition to "knocking Murilo Bustamante's ass out."

Baroni said that he would dominate Bustamante in much the same way Quinton Jackson did, with the difference being that Baroni believes he is "a lot stronger than Jackson, much better at finishing fights, and with much better hands." Fighting at light-heavyweight would not be a problem for Baroni because he is currently walking around at about 215 pounds.

Phil Baroni said that he wants to fight the best fighters in the world; he does not want to take a step back or have any tune-up fights. Team Miletich fighter Tony Fryklund and Team Quest fighter Chael Sonnen, both of whom have expressed an interest in fighting Baroni, apparently fit into the category of "tune-up fight."

Baroni commented that he doesn't want to hear about Fryklund because he had a chance to fight Baroni at UFC 40 and turned it down. Baroni went as far as to say that he could "beat up twenty Tony Fryklund's and build up an artificial record like Sean Sherk," but it would just be a mismatch.

Baroni also gauranteed that "C-K Sonnen" (as Baroni called him) will not win the eight-man IFC tournament, and he predicted that Sonnen will put out of the tournament if he's lucky enough to get past the first round.

Baroni said that he would be happy to knock Sonnen out if by some minor miracle he does win the IFC tournament, but until then he doesn't want to hear about him.

Baroni reitered that he wants to fight the best fighters in the world and doesn't "want to fight any f---ing bums." He also complained that Matt Lindland doesn't want to fight him anymore. Baroni said that he made Lindland's career and compared their fights to Gatti vs. Ward in boxing, but he doesn't think Lindland-Baroni III will ever happen because Lindland knows he would get knocked out
