Charles Bennett emerged last week from wherever he’s been hiding since being choked out by Drew Fickett during the Shine Fights lightweight tournament, just long enough to film himself sipping on a Mountain Dew and puffing on a Black & Mild while calling out a handful of fighters he has beefs with.
Bennett first took aim at Michael Johnson, referring to The Ultimate Fighter Season 12 finalist as “Michelle.” It’s unclear why he has an issue with Johnson. Maybe he was the teammate he attacked with a steel bar during pro class or maybe it’s because of the fact that the Team Jackson fighter made it on the show and he didn’t.
Next, KK turned his crosshairs on Noons, whom he was rumored to be rematching last June before the fight fell through for whatever reason. According to Bennett, who is a sub-par 5-6 since the last time they met, the most recent planned rematch of their first meeting under the EliteXC banner was postponed because of Noons breaking his hand.
Since Noons broke his hand in his Strikeforce welterweight title fight with Nick Diaz last October, it looks like the rematch was likely penciled in for either Strikeforce’s January or March show. Maybe Noons’ announcement last week that he will be fighting “a yet-to-be-decided opponent” on the April 9 SF card and the fact that Bennett says during the video that he “will be returning soon” means that Strikeforce is keeping the much-anticipated rematch under wraps until they can be sure Charles isn’t incarcerated come fight time.

Lastly, he called out former Chuteboxe teammates Cristiane Marcello and Wanderlei Silva for being untruthful in their recollections of the pair of infamous backstage PRIDE Shockwave 2005 incidents that allegedly saw the fighter formerly known as “Krazy Horse” knock out “The Axe Murderer” before getting choked to sleep by Marcello later in the night. Unless he can find an overseas show to host an open-weight bout, he’s probably wasting his breath.
