By Jamie Penick, MMATorch Editor-in-Chief

A very unique fight is coming to NBCSN on July 30, as World Series of Fighting officials announced on Tuesday that brothers Caros and Ben Fodor will face one another at a catchweight of 162 lbs. at WSOF 32.

The fight will be part of the main card for the event, which will be headlined by a Featherweight Title rematch between Alexandre Almeida and Lance Palmer from the Xfinity Arena in Everett, Wash.

Caros, the elder of the two brothers, is a veteran of Strikeforce and the UFC, as well as the Singapore-based ONE Championship organization. Following a loss to Luiz Firmino in his WSOF debut, he’ll now take on his younger brother, better known by his “superhero” get-up as Phoenix Jones.

Said WSOF President Ray Sefo in a press release, “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.”
