Caros Fodor has a little advice before hanging up and his tone has changed. He’s spent about 20 minutes discussing his July 30 bout in the World Series of Fighting and going over the strengths and weaknesses of his opponent, Phoenix Jones.
He knows Jones better than most, though, because Jones is his brother, whose real name is Ben Fodor. The two don’t get along, and haven’t for some time. But with their fight now booked, Caros admits, “It’s kind of surreal that this is really happening.”
Ben Fodor is, to be kind, a character. Phoenix Jones is his alter ego, a so-called crime fighter in Seattle who wears a costume as if he were a modern-day Batman.
New UFC fighter Cris Cyborg recently joined a local radio show in Los Angeles to promote her fight at UFC 198. As it often does with Cyborg, the subject of Ronda Rousey was brought and she continued her taunting of the former champion:
“Ronda always runs from me,” “Cyborg” told Power 106 in Los Angeles on Tuesday. “Because before when she started training, I was already champion at 145 and she started at 145 and she run to 135.
“She’s always say she wants to fight me but she never wants to make a catch weight so she can meet the challenge and fight.”
