It looks like Charles “Krazy Horse” Bennett is behind bars once again…
The troubled lightweight was arrested on January 9th following a domestic dispute. He faces a slew of charges including domestic battery via strangulation, violation of his probation, tampering with a witness, and possession of marijuana.
Bennett was set to clash with long-time rival Victor Valenzuela at KOTC: Premiere this Thursday but has been replaced by Matt Ver Halen. The card features a main event between Thomas Denny and Joe Camacho.
Bennett has won four of his last five bouts. The loss came at the hands of Valenzuela at an EliteXC event in August. Bennett’s last fight was a submission win over Donnie Martinez at KOTC: Hierarchy this past October.
According to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office, Bennett has been arrested 25 times since December of 1997.
