The following statement was recently released by Scott Jansen regarding the Phil Baroni incident:
I want to put on record my sincere apologies to Phil Baroni, The Fans and Cage Rage for the incident that took place following my fight on Saturday. It should not have happened and the person responsible is very shamed faced.
At the time – Thanks to his incredible right hook – I was unaware that Phil had been assaulted. In fact I was totally unaware of anything and everything. Baroni has my utmost respect for his prowess in the Cage – And particularly the way he handled the assault following the fight.
He could have escalated the situation but instead chose to act like a true and mature ambassador for the sport.
I apologised in person to Phil on the night, he duly accepted my gesture – Shook Hands – and bought him a drink. There is no ill feeling from Phil or his Team and I now wish to continue to strive to improve myself as a fighter and concentrate on my career.
I wanted to make that apology public.
