Has Phil Baroni murdered his girlfriend?

According to Tribuna De La Bahia, the two were arguing inside a hotel in San Pancho at the time of the alleged incident.

The former mixed martial artist acknowledged throwing the victim into the shower, where she hit her skull and her away shortly after.

She allegedly admitted to cheating on him, according to Baroni.

According to reports, Baroni voluntarily alerted authorities, who discovered the victim’s naked, lifeless body wrapped in a sheet along with bruises and wounds to her face.

At the time of the incident, he was apparently under the effects of drink and drugs.

The report claimed:

“Baroni beat his girlfriend, a Mexico City native, to death in San Pancho, Nayarit, México. He alleges he threw her inside the shower with force after she told him she had cheated where she hit her head and passed away minutes later.”

Michael Bisping, a former UFC fighter, was shocked to learn the news.

He tweeted,



The woman was found to be naked on a bed that had a bed sheet when the police got on the scene. She had visible signs of beatings and bruises on her face, but doctors immediately declared her dead.

The two got into a fight, according to Baroni, who allegedly informed the police that he started smoking marijuana and drinking beer in his room around 3 o’clock. Baroni’s fiancée allegedly confessed to him that she was having sex with another man throughout the fight.

The ex-UFC fighter then threw his girlfriend into the shower, causing her to strike her head on the floor.

‘NYBA’ did assist Phil Baroni’s girlfriend in getting up and then placed her on the bed as she struggled to stand. He then took her clothing off and covered her with a bed sheet.

According to the report, Baroni’s girlfriend next requested a cigarette and a beer. He left the room to obtain them, and when he came back, he saw that she was missing all of her vital signs. According to the article, Baroni was detained on suspicion of murder.

To determine the precise cause of death, an extensive investigation is currently under progress.

About Baroni

Baroni was a founding member of the UFC, having made his promotional debut at UFC 30 back in February 2001. Over the course of two stints with the company, he engaged in ten fights, recording a combined 3-7 record.

Baroni’s professional mixed martial arts career came to an end in 2019 with a record of 16-19.

He ended his MMA career in 2019. After showing support for Jonathan Koppenhaver (aka War Machine), who had been convicted of many felonies for raping, abusing, and attacking his ex-girlfriend Christy Mack and her partner, Baroni is said to have been sacked from Bellator in 2014.

As reported by MMA Weekly at the time, Baroni has also had a few run-ins with the law over the years, including an arrest in 2007 for “one felony count of Threatening a Public Servant and misdemeanor counts for Disorderly Conduct and Resisting Officers Without Violence.”

Phil Baroni supported ‘War Machine’ during his trial and even after his conviction

Jonathan “War Machine” Koppenhaver, a former mixed martial artist, was found guilty on 29 out of 36 counts related to the attack on Christy Mack, a pornographic film actress, and her partner in August 2014.

He was given a life sentence with a 36-year parole eligibility period. Despite the heinousness of his crime, Baroni continued to publicly back his former teammate. He paid ‘War Machine’ a visit while he was incarcerated, and his popularity helped get him released from Bellator.

Throughout the trial, Baroni also made a point to stand up for the “War Machine.”

Baroni remained supportive of “War Machine” despite listening to the horrifying details of his crime. He supported the disgraced former fighter on Instagram as recently as May 2022, sharing a photo of himself standing behind “War Machine” during his trial with the caption:

“Loyalty before royality #gzuphoesdown”
