The masked crime-fighter known as “Phoenix Jones” will make his World Series of Fighting debut vs. Emmanuel Walo at WSOF 20 this April.

Set for April 10 from the Foxwoods Resort and Casino in Connecticut, the main card airs on NBC Sports and features David Branch vs. Ronny Markes in a light heavyweight tournament semifinal.
