Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

The Fighter Formerly Know as Krazy Horse to Rematch KJ Noons at Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Werdum Event in June

(Hopefully, for KJ’s sake, that scale is bolted down)

Sherdog is reporting that June’s Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Werdum  event has added double the firepower with the addition of a main card bout featuring former EliteXC lightweight champion KJ Noons and Charles "Krazy Horse" "Kid Kaos" Bennett. The fight will be a heavily anticipated rematch of their February 10, 2007 fight (video after the jump) that saw Bennett knock Noons out in the first round.

Since their original clash, both fighters’ careers have been on decidedly different trajectories.

Besides defeating Nick Diaz to win the EliteXC 155-pound crown, Noons has been victorious in each of his other three outings since losing to Bennett. Stepping away from MMA for the better part of two years after being stripped of his belt for refusing a rematch with Diaz under the financial terms of his contract with the now defunct promotion, Noons refocused on his boxing career and said his days in the cage were over as he followed Randy Couture‘s lead and (sort of) retired. After EliteXC folded, Noons signed with Strikeforce and was set to face Billy Evangelista at Strikeforce: Miami on Jan. 30, but the fight was scrapped after Evangelista sustained an injury in training. He was granted permission from Strikeforce to compete under the DREAM banner and defeated Andre "Dida" Amade via unanimous decision in his return bout in March.

Bennett’s career and life has been a lot less productive than Noons’ since their first meeting.

Putting together a lackluster 4-3 MMA record, including a KO loss to Bobby Green in his last King of the Cage bout in December, Bennett has compiled an even less impressive criminal record since beating Noons in 2007.  He has spent several stints in jail for parole violations and had an extended stay in an Albuquerque prison for assaulting a teammate in his gym with a metal pipe after a heated sparring session in January of this year didn’t go his way.

According to a Sherdog report on the incident, Bennett’s calculated revenge lived up to his current and previous monickers’ connotations:

“During routine sparring, tempers flared between Charles and the other fighter, and Charles ended up getting dropped by the larger training partner. They were quickly broken up and Charles left the mat, got dressed and left the building. He returned about 15 minutes later, walked down to the training area and pulled out a heavy piece of steel he must have found in the parking lot and began attacking the other fighter (from behind) with intent to do serious damage. He was tackled by two other fighters and disarmed.”

To date, Strikeforce has only announced two other bouts for the June 26 event, which will emanate from the HP Pavilion in San Jose, CA. Including the card’s main event namesake bout between Fedor Emelianenko and Fabricio Werdum, the card will also feature a women’s featherweight title match-up between current champion Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos and 8-7 promotional newcomer Jan "Cuddles" Finney.

Krazy Horse gets the win due to the use of a foreign object.

KJ Noons by police intervention.

Stiiiiiilllllll patiently awaiting the Diaz/ Noons'seses dad rematch. WTF strikeforce. Not that I would fight the guy, but getting KO'd in a big show by the Krrrazy Ho is a lot like getting beat down by the scummy crack head guy who sits at the freeway overpass every morning when you go to work, talking to himself in his shit-stained corduroys holding a sign that somebody else clearly wrote for him. Not a story you want to share with friends.

In other news, and once again, the signs are all there. Strikeforce is bleeding out. The... light... is... growing.. dimmer... there's a tunnel... it's uncle EliteXC!... and Grampa Affliction!... I can see the Yamma pit!... must cling to Fedor's enormous cast brass Russian balls...

We have some extreme douche bags at my gym that pull some ridiculous BS but that takes the cake. I bet the guy he was sparring with was a douchebag, too. Douche on douche crime isn't really crime in my book but bringing that energy into the gym is unforgivable.

Charles Bennet is the Kool Keith of MMA. "Kid Kaos" should lose this one though, but I'm interested to see if he has improved at all.

Hopefully he won't get choked out in the locker room beforehand.

I remember when he fought for Pride Bushido. He was talking about how masturbation is the best exercise..he said there is pleasure, and there is work. I'm sorry but this dude is hilarious...disturbed..and unstable..but that makes it funny.

And I don't care if you if you spell it with a 'K' or a 'C''s all the same for me.

You hit a training partner in the back with a piece of fucking steel you found in the parking lot? After you had a chance to cool down from whatever bruising your pussy ego got. Nope, no second chances on that one. Fuck this clown. I won't be watching this shit. This makes most of the shit in yesterday's black eye list look like baking cookies for the grandchildren. Does anyone have Coker's email? I'm now actively rooting for the end of Strikeforce and you know what, if he goes to the UFC through TUF, same thing.

Heath Herring should change his nickname. Compared to this guy, Heath is just 'Crazy Pony' or maybe even 'Crazy Philly'. Bennett is the real Crazy Horse.

So...does that mean I can start going by Krazy Horse now?
Viva Hate- May 20, 2010 at 11:18 am
Really? Everyone is kind of blowing this out of proportion. He has only faced charges of possession of cocaine, selling cocaine, false imprisonment, and assault. He only one backstage fight. How long until he legally changes his name to Kid Kao?

Kid Kaos vs. War Machine, now that would draw ratings.

If he wins this fight do think Dana will have him on the next season of tuf, He was at the tryouts. He would make Junie look like a Mormon. It would be the best season ever.
VisitingDeadAncestors- May 20, 2010 at 10:58 am
i wonder if that pipe's available for this bout?

KJ is probably gonna take this one but only if

he get's past images of their last encounter.
Sonic Boom- May 20, 2010 at 10:58 am
Excellent thinking Scott Coker. Your relationship with CBS is near death and you are deciding to put Krazy Horse on your Fedor card. Yep, this will end well...

Kid Kaos? What the Fuck just happened here?

Krazy Horse for life Mothra Fockers!
