Phil Baroni and Joe Schilling Beef Leading to a Possible Grudge Match

If you were looking for a major lure for GLORY 21 and hadn't found it just yet this might be right up your alley. Joe Schilling stepped into the Bellator cage for the second time on Friday evening and while he demonstrated just how diverse his MMA game has become, he dropped what many considered a controversial decision to Rafael Carvalho. Seemingly out of nowhere, Phil Baroni decided to kick Schilling while he was down via Twitter and things got ugly in a hurry.



Usually that would be the end of this, but GLORY is still looking to fill out the rest of their GLORY 21 card and has an open spot in the co-main event right now. GLORY's CEO Jon J. Franklin took to Twitter and confirmed that they would be happy to house a fight between Baroni and Schilling.

We know that GLORY has been looking for a big fight for this card and was looking to book Bill Goldberg against Alberto el Patron/Del Rio, only for Goldberg to turn it down. Phil Baroni is an experienced MMA fighter who has recently been making the transition to professional wrestling, rumored to be a part of WWE's upcoming Tough Enough reality series. Schilling has far more experience at a higher level when it comes to kickboxing, although it is hard to argue against the experience that Baroni has had throughout his career. Baroni is also 38 years old and is transitioning away from professional fighting. 

Essentially this is not the fight for either man in their respective careers right now, but professional fighting tends to lack these big grudge matches and GLORY is clearly seeing the dollar signs and media attention that this could garner for them and is ready to hop onto it.

What do you think? Is this the right move for GLORY or should they hold course and err on the side of caution when it comes to fights like this?
