UFC and Strikeforce veteran, Phil Baroni will meet Nick Nolte at Titan Fighting Championships 17. The event takes place on March 25th at Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Missouri.
Phil Baroni signed with Titan FC last month after being released from the UFC, following back-to-back losses in the promotion. He returned to the UFC in November of 2009, but lost a one-sided division to former ‘Ultimate Fighter’ winner Amir Sadollah. Baroni got a second chance to get a win, but was TKO’d by up-and-coming prospect Brad Tavares in the first round.
Nick Nolte is a Kansas City local, competing for both Strikeforce and Bellator in his young MMA career. In just his second professional fight, Nolte earned a first round submission victory over Andy Waters at Strikeforce Challengers 5. He then met Drew Dober at Bellator 16, losing by an arm-triangle choke in the opening round. Nolte recently scored a submission victory over Lee Werr at a regional event in Kansas.
