Fact, mixed martial arts needs more super heroes. When two EA UFC create-a-fighters are jabbing each other for 15 minutes on a Fight Pass undercard, the MMA world needs a super hero. When the World Series of Fighting is doing WSOF stuff on a random Saturday afternoon, it would be better if some of those men fought crime at night. When Bellator needs a warm body to feel up Spike TV allotted air time, it would be cool if that warm body wore a cape to the ring.
Contrary to popular belief there are still ways to make two dudes locked in a cage more exciting than it already is. In the Pacific Northwest Ben Fodor is a nice 5-0-1 welterweight MMA prospect with big league potential. At night Fodor turns into Phoenix Jones. He dons a mask, wears a bulletin proof custom black and yellow suit, and roams the streets of Seattle on a mission to stop crime.
ESPN SportsCenter Featured recently highlighted the life and times of Phoenix Jones/Ben Fodor. The leader of the Rain City super hero group, Jones has already got a ton of publicity as MMA’s first super hero. Overall with crime down in the Seattle metropolis, Jones next mission as a super hero is to save the MMA world from oversaturation and shoulder shrugs.
A plea and or light projection Phoenix signal goes out to all MMA promos across the globe; sign Phoenix Jones and make sure he has a cool zip line and pyrotechnics for his first walk to the cage for your promotion.
