Another classic performance by Charles Krazy Horse Bennett where he scrambles, throws wildly but unfortunately gets caught by an opponent who isn’t interested in clowning in the cage. Bennett fought the way he fought because of his own personal demons – not because it was effective. Entertaining? Effing right, he was entertaining. For a guy who never even came close to having a belt, he’s got more highlight reel footage of him floating around mixed martial arts than any other MMA fighter out there.
Valenzuela got a nice win here, but then what happened? Do you hear about Victor Valenzuela anymore? No. But you will hear and see MMA fights with Charles Krazy Horse Bennett for years to come. And love him or hate him, Bennett’s the one with the legacy.
King of the Cage and other MMA fight organizations like it are where the champions of tomorrow get their start. Case in point, Urijah Faber’s fight here against Charles Krazy Horse Bennet. And its always interesting to see that the style of the fighter doesn’t change that much from when they start out in their career to when they’ve got a belt and fought in the big shows.
Krazy Horse Bennet never failed to entertain when he got in the cage. Problem was – he was nuts, in the cage and in his life. As a result, he had a few brushed with the law and some tough times. Too bad really because fans love that kind of character – a fighter who will leave it all in the cage no matter what. Bennet had skills, no doubt.
Those small, local shows are what MMA is built on.
