Phoenix Jones needs to fight in Strikeforce

As if getting arrested for indiscriminately pepperspraying a group of post-club shit kickers wasn’t bad enough, Phoenix Jones aka MMA fighter Ben Fodor also had his $6000 supersuit taken away by the cops. Not content to stop messing with him there, the government has now also stepped in and gotten him fired from his day job. His more superhero job than his actual superhero job: working with developmentally disabled autistic children!

Last week, Jones received a letter from the state Department of Social and Health Services, informing him he is no longer allowed to work with kids. PubliCola was not able to determine exactly why DSHS disqualified Jones from working with kids, but it appears to be due to his pending assault case.

When contacted for a comment, Jones said he had been advised not to speak extensively about the circumstances of his apparent termination, but confirmed he was no longer able to work with autistic children.

“They all knew I was Phoenix Jones,” he says.

Jones says that because of his arrest, he’s on “a list” that prohibits him from working with children, because he has “a history of interjecting myself into situations that are dangerous.”

Jones, naturally, disputes that characterization. “I would say I have a history of fighting crime,” he says. “The whole point of what I do is to keep people safe.”

Jones isn’t sure how he’ll pay the bills now. He says he’s received offers for fight bouts from the Strikeforce mixed martial arts organization, and plans to start fighting crime in the daytime, in addition to his night patrols around Seattle. Other than that, he says, “I really don’t know.”

Normally I’d say what’s the point of getting a job with Strikeforce because you’re going to end up just as unemployed in a few months. But in this case I’ll stop being a giant cynic and say yeah, it would totally be cool if Phoenix Jones joined Strikeforce. Not only does it totally sound like the plot to comic book, but the guy is essentially being punished for being awesome by getting fired from a job that desperately requires awesome people. Those kids need a real life superhero, and I’d say Jones had a resume that fit that description.

    Yeah, that really suxx for the guy. I still 100% support IamPhoenigga’s troll thread.

  • Omomatta

    Phoenix Jones’ first mistake was not keeping his identity a secret. Isn’t that superhero Rule #1? Secondly, I don’t know a single parent who would want their child to be around a wackadoo like that guy. With that being said, I too support Ihasfenix troll thread.

  • thingvolds

    don’t know much about the guy and i’ve never seen him fight, but from what i’ve read about him here, he seems like an idiot. i imagine he once dreamed of being a cop but couldn’t pass the psych evaluation. total doucher

  • iamphoenix

    I would never allow my kid to be around a flat top like that. Thanks for the support guys.

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    I would never allow my son Fauxnicks to be around a guy like that.  Having said that, I fully support the troll thread.

  • G Funk

    He’s not a real life superhero, he’s an idiot that pepper sprays people for arguing outside of clubs. I too support Penix’s Phoenix troll thread.

  • Letibleu

    Every troll I did on his facebook were deleted.

  • glassjawsh

    ^ that’s because he’s a super hero who needs his wife to patrol his facebook

  • Danjo

    Aw for fucks sake, he worked with autistic kids? And they knew his secret identity?

    This magnificent bastard needs to sell his story to the Lifetime network. They will make a made for tv movie out of this and he will be rich as fuuuuucccccckkkkkkkkk.

  • G Funk

    ^ I will like your comment cause I will take it as sarcasm.

  • Danjo

    I was half serious.

    Some media assclown somewhere would buy this story for a book or movie deal.

  • Reverend Clint

  • Predator8u

    That was a very ignorant stmeeatnt. If you can’t find Canada on the map then that is a testament to the poor education system in the USA. Yes, Canada only has one champion in the UFC his name is Georges St. Pierre and this champion has BEATEN EVERY SINGLE AMERICAN FIGHTER put before him. So choke on that while you eat your Apple Pie!As far as GSP is concerned you need to take another look at the video where grease gate allegedly occurred. You act as if Phil Nurse was lathering Georges with multiple jars of Vaseline. This thing went to court and Georges was found NOT GUILTY. Making a mountain out of a mole hill never works so give it a rest.BJ Penn and Matt Hughes couldn’t cope with the severe betting they received at the hands of GSP and their subcequent loss. So they justified this loss by lying to themselves that Georges greased up. Finding excuses for your loss is very common Psychological problem that many athletes have especially sore losers.In reality they have no one to blame for their loss but themselves. BJ is a very good fighter but he slacked off and didn’t train properly .just look at the Primetime piece that was done on St. Pierre vs Penn 2 just before the fight. Dana was pissed that BJ wasn’t taking the fight seriously enough and that his training was lacking.Matt Hughes was always an arrogant, cocky, piece of shit sore loser and he grossly underestimated GSP in their 2nd fight that why HE GOT KNOCKED THE FUCK OUT !Pointe finale. (this is French, use Bablefish to translate because i’m quite sure the only other language you know is Ebonics)
