After recovering from the injury, Baroni faced Brad Tavares, losing via first-round knockout which was a very rare thing to see in Baroni's case. After the fight, Baroni was cut from the UFC. Baroni next faced Nick Nolte, winning via controversial unanimous decision.
Instead Baroni next faced Chris Holland losing a second round technical knockout. He then made his OneFC debut against Rodrigo Ribeiro, winning via a first round technical knockout (soccer kicks and punches).
Baroni next made his Dream debut against fellow Pride vet Hayato Sakurai, losing a grueling unanimous decision to Sakurai.
Baroni next returned to One FC to fight Nobutatsu Suzuki. The two traded bombs for most of the first round before Baroni was rocked by a flurry and fell with his right ankle twisting grotesquely beneath him. The fight was ruled a TKO victory for Suzuki and that was that.
Baroni took some time off to recover but in December 2013 he was involved in a Twitter feud with former undefeated Bellator welterweight champion Ben Askren who was rumored to soon be signing with One FC.
Instead, Baroni never re-signed with One FC and instead signed in March 2014 with Bellator. He would make his debut in May against Jesus Martinez about a year after the Suzuki fight. The fight didn't materialize.
Baroni was next rumored to make his Bellator debut against fellow UFC veteran Karo Parisyan. The fight was signed in mid June 2014.
