World Series of Fighting Signs MMA/”Crime” Fighter Phoenix Jones

Now that he’s been profiled by ESPN, it would be safe to say that Phoenix Jones (aka Ben Fodor) is quite the hot commodity right now. His recent Twitter postings seem to back this notion, as does the fact that he’s recently gone full War Machine and changed his name. With a 15-2 ammy record and 5-0-1 pro record at just 26 years of age, it’d also be safe to say that the guy’s made enough noise *and* proven himself enough to be called up to the big leagues. (looking at you, guy whose name rhymes with Bee Phlegm Skunk).

Regardless of how you feel about Jones, WSOF President Ray Sefo told MMAjunkie today that the undefeated welterweight has signed a multi-fight deal with World Series of Fighting, with his debut expected to take place at WSOF 20 on April 10. No opponent has yet to be named, but our bet is on Afro Ninja.

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.
