Phil Baroni: ‘Hammerhouse Is A Punching Bag On Coleman’s Porch’

Mark Coleman & Phil Baroni

There’s no gym Hammerhouse. There’s no gym in Ohio. There’s no–you know Coleman’s out here in Vegas training me. He’s staying at the Palace Station. There’s no team. I never went to train with Team Hammerhouse. It’s just bullshit. Coleman’s just a good marketer. He’s telling me he wants to open up a Hammerhouse gym in Ohio. He’d like to do that some day. It was just a bunch of guys fighting under a flag you know what I mean? They didn’t train together. I never really trained with Coleman. He’s way too big. He would corner me and we’d have conversations on the phone. It’s not a gym. It was something in Japan that they marketed. They just made the team more than what it is. There is no Hammerhouse. Hammerhouse is a punching bag on Coleman’s porch. I’ve seen pictures of it. It’s just an old punching bag. I’ve never even been to Coleman’s house.

—Phil Baroni telling Middle Easy Mark Coleman’s Team Hammerhouse was all just an illusion

Well hey, at least they looked like a team when they brawled with Chute Boxe after the Coleman-Shogun fight. Some memories should be treasured.
