According to Tribuna De La Bahia, Baroni summoned police to the home he shared with his partner, whose name has been withheld pending notification of next of kin. He claimed that after she admitted to cheating on him, the two got into a fight, and he threw her into the shower, where she hit her head. Follow For More Updates at satiknews.com
He claims he then helped her back into her bed, where she passed out. That’s when he went outside and summoned the authorities.
Local authorities discovered the victim naked on a bed with no vital signs and “multiple marks of beatings,” including bruises on her face and body, according to a report from the Policia Estatal Turistica. The police photos also appear to show bruising on one of Baroni’s fists.
Baroni has been charged with homicide and is being held in the Valle de Banderas Municipal Administrative Court’s jail. Meanwhile, the victim is undergoing an autopsy to determine the cause of death.
Baroni is a long-time MMA fighter who has competed for many of the sport’s biggest promotions, including the UFC, Pride FC, Strikeforce, ICON, EliteXC, ONE, DREAM, and Bellator. He fought big names like Matt Lindland, Evan Tanner, Ikuhisa Minowa, Frank Shamrock, Joe Riggs, and Karo Parisyan, among others, and amassed a record of 16-19 (3-7 UFC). Following his loss to Parisyan in 2014, he took a four-year break from competition before returning in 2018 to compete twice more in MMA.
