The signing was initially reported by MMA Junkie and the promotion sent out a press release on Thursday to officially announce the signing.

“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,” said WSOF President Ray Sefo.

Fodor (5-0-1) is the brother of current ONE Championship fighter Caros Fodor and he gained headlines back in 2011 as a costumed crime fighter in Seattle know as Phoenix Jones. His last MMA bout came last month as he defeated Jason Novelli by technical submission in the third round.

His opponent for WSOF 20 on April 10 at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut is expected to be announced shortly by the promotion.
