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.

Our sport is a freakshow, is what we’re getting at.

The brother of Strikeforce vet Cerberus Smith Caros Fodor, Jones last fought at Super Fight League 37, picking up a third round submission via Hadouken rear-naked choke over Jason Novelli. And you know what they say, if you can prove yourself in Super Fight League, that’s pretty neat.

Personally, I think that anyone who slaps on a costume and calls themselves a “crime fighter” — either in this world or any fictional one — is a tool, especially so when pepper spraying complete strangers is involved. But Fodor seems to have some legitimate skills, at least when he’s fighting shithammered club rats with a proclivity for saying “dawg”, so let’s see how it translates to the cage.
