Since we don't match so much on X, will he have the same haplogroup as my Mother (his Sister), who hasn't been tested?

Is there any benefit to having my Mother's mtDNA done?
If your mother and your uncle were born of the same mother, they will have the same mtDNA haplogroup. And it will be the same as yours. I can't think of any reason to test your mother's mtDNA.
