Phil Baroni Fighting For Strikeforce in May

Phil Baroni (13-10) has publicly said he'll make his return to MMA at a May Strikeforce event that is scheduled to take place in Seattle.  The scheduled bout will take place in the welterweight division, and it's unknown who Baroni's opponent will be.

"I've started my training camp at Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas... I'm very happy to be fighting in Strikeforce for Scott Coker again," Baroni said on a post on the UG forums.

Since dropping from middleweight to welterweight, Baroni has a three-fight win streak against the likes of Olaf Alfonso, Ron Verdadero and Scott Jansen.  Prior to his move to 170, he lost three straight, a slide started by Frank Shamrock submitting him in a middleweight title fight during StrikeForce Shamrock vs. Baroni in 2007.

Strikeforce had eight shows in 2008, but after a recently announced deal with Showtime, the organization hopes to have 16 live televised MMA events this year.
