WSOF Just Booked the First Ever (?) Brother vs. Brother MMA Fight

The question of “who would win?” is one we’ve all inevitably asked ourselves when comparing some of MMA’s more famous brothers. The Nogueiras, the Freires, the Millers, the Brothers Diaz…we know that arbitrary things like weight classes and “love for one another” would keep most of these pairs from ever throwing down outside of the occasional family BBQ, but would a promotion even book such a fight if given the chance?

We’re kidding, of course. This is a sport that puts 68 year-old women and quadriplegics in ostensibly life-or-death scenarios without batting an eye, so the thought of booking a real-life Warrior scenario would be enough to make them shit their collective britches. As luck would have it, the World Series of Fighting appears to have shit those very britches.


WTF?! Video of the Day: Wannabe Superhero “Phoenix Jones” One-Punches Drunk Dude Under Police Supervision

(“Can you guys hurry this up? My Mom…I mean The Phoenix signal is calling.”)

If you are an MMA fan, a comic book fan, or just a really lonely guy, then you’ve probably heard the story of Phoenix Jones a.k.a Ben Fodor, the amateur MMA fighter/”superhero” that according to his Wikipedia page “is an American leader of a ten-member citizen crime-prevention patrol group who call themselves the Rain City Superhero Movement.” So basically, a bunch of dudes who never met a Friday night they couldn’t squander formed a neighborhood watch group and dressed in cosplay. Because as we all know, the best way to be taken seriously is to dress up like a bumblebee and hand out life lessons to the drunks who happen to stumble out of the bars each night.

In any case, the world’s least anonymous superhero encountered one such drunk last weekend. After informing the police of the situation, Fodor challenged the drunken fellow to “mutual combat,” which is apparently a law dictating that if two parties have expressed an equal desire to fight one another, they can do so without the threat of legal action as long as neither participant uses unreasonable force. Awesome.

Video after the jump.


The MMA Chain Gang: A Depressing Review of 2011′s Criminal Activities


Most ‘crimes’ in MMA take the form of inept judging and flagrant rule breaking, but this past year many professional fighters were caught up in activities that landed them inside of a very different sort of cage. Get ready for a trip down memory lane in our most depressing “booking roundup” of the year. Here’s your run down of 2011’s biggest arrests, convictions, acquittals, and sentencings.
