Reports surfaced yesterday on Gracie Fighter stating that Phil Baroni may not be fighting Frank Shamrock after all this weekend because his medical work wasn’t done yet. The report has since then been “removed by request.”
Josh Gross of Sherdog shed light on the situation
with a report this morning:
Regarding a report that surfaced Tuesday on graciefighter.com about the status of Phil Baroni, who is scheduled to fight Frank Shamrock on the card’s main event, Garcia said the middleweight underwent standard MRI tests required of all licensees.
Ken Pavia, who also represents Baroni, said results should be known sometime Wednesday morning and that he believed his client would be cleared to fight.
