Well it looks as if UFC welterweight Phil Baroni is out of August 28th’s UFC 118 with John Salter.
Baroni’s agent, Ken Pavia, confirmed earlier today with MMAJunkie.com that the news was indeed true, and stated that the reason for Baroni’s withdrawl from the bout is due a collarbone injury, but the fighter should not be out long.
“He suffered a minor injury that interrupted his preparations,” Pavia said. “It’s not going to be a long-term problem.”
A search for Baroni’s replacement is already underway and the fighter is expected to come back for a fall UFC event.
UFC 118 is taking place at TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts on August 28th.
