Caros Fodor to fight brother Ben Fodor, aka Phoenix Jones, in WSOF

It will be brother vs. brother in World Series of Fightings as Caros Fodor will fight his brother Ben, better known as Phoenix Jones.

You don't often see brothers fighting inside a cage for money, but that is what will happen in World Series of Fighting. Veteran Caros Fodor will take on his brother Ben Fodor, who is better known as crime fighter Phoenix Jones. The promotion announced the event and bout earlier today.

The two men will meet on a July 30th event dubbed WSOF 32 in Everett.

Caros (10-5) has competed in most of the largest MMA organizations in the world. He was a Strikeforce Challengers product, going 5-1 in the promotion before being brought over to the UFC in the merger. He lost his only UFC bout by split decision to Sam Stout, and that earned him his walking papers. After a run in ONE Championship, he lost a bout with Luiz Firmino in his WSOF debut that would have probably earned him a title shot with a win.

Jones (6-1-1), who dons a mask and fights crime in Seattle, is 1-1 in WSOF competition. He is coming off a submission win over Roberto Yong last September.

Yahoo Sports talked to both men, who say the bout was a long time coming as they do not get along. Caros is dismissive of brother Ben's crime fighting, while Ben says he's just fighting to fund that career.

"One hundred percent, it's going to make our Mom cry," Jones said. "That's a guarantee. But we've been circling each other for years. This was inevitable."

WSOF president Ray Sefo also released a statement regarding the bout:

"We are excited to make our debut in the great state of Washington with such a spectacular affair that will feature one of the most anticipated and well-deserved rematches of the year, as well as a something that you rarely see in combat sports – a matchup between family members whose competitive rivalry is so intense that, after so many years, it has resulted in the two agreeing to settle their differences in the cage."
