Ben “Phoenix Jones” Fodor will make his debut with the World Series of Fighting on April 10, officials confirmed in a recent press release.
The crime-fighter/MMA fighter will compete against a soon-to-be-announced opponent at WSOF: Branch vs. Markes from Connecticut. The main card airs on NBC Sports Network from Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut.
Fodor (5-0-1) gained fame by fighting crime dressed as a superhero in Seattle. He’s the brother of MMA veteran Caros Fodor.
“We are thrilled to welcome Ben Fodor, who has not only been making waves as an unbeaten professional in our great sport, but who has also shown himself to be an incredibly courageous and selfless human being by risking his safety in the streets of Seattle to help and inspire others,” WSOF president Ray Sefo said.
Fodor scored a submission victory in February over Jason Novelli, locking up a rear-naked choked in the third round. As an amateur, he compiled a 15-2 record.
