Charles “Krazy Horse” Bennett, who was set to face Victor “Joe Boxer” Valenzuela in a rematch on Friday night's Strikeforce event, is off of the fight card. Bennett was recently arrested, with a booking date of June 15, 2007, for two charges of violating his probation in Marion County, Fla. Apparently, he will not be able to clear up his legal troubles in time to make the fight.

Bennett is an unorthodox fighter that established himself with EliteXC, which is co-promoting Friday's Strikeforce "Shamrock vs. Baroni" event in San Jose, Calif., by knocking out KJ Noons at EliteXC's inaugural event on Showtime earlier this year.

Was Gina supposed to be on this card? Or was she supposed to be on the K-1 Dynamite card?

And they did get a decent replacement for Rua in Niko...

I still have a good feeling about this card, and think it'll be well worth the money

How is Bennett a discrace? him gettin arrested probably has nothin to do with mma. MMA fighters have problems to.
if bennett is a discrace for having problems then I guess Tito is a discrace to because he tried to committ suicide, and Royce is a discrace because he took steroids. and melvin because of the cocaine incident (well yeah he is).

Arrested Friday on a pair of probation violations, Charles Bennett (Pictures)'s participation on June 22's co-promotion between Strikeforce and EliteXC is in peril.

The 27-year-old lightweight from Ocala, Fla. with a long history of legal troubles is meeting with prosecutors on Tuesday, said EliteXC vice president Jared Shaw, as the mixed martial arts promotional company hopes to free Bennett (17-13-2) in time to fight Victor Valenzuela (Pictures) on pay-per-view from San Jose, Calif.

Bennett and Valenzuela (5-1-2) fought to a draw in August 2005.

If "Krazy Horse" is unable to fight, EliteXC has tabbed another Floridian, James Edson Berto (Pictures), to take Bennett's place. Berto (10-3-1) won his previous EliteXC contest, a stoppage over John Shackelford (Pictures) in February.

The Fight Network reported on Tuesday that Bennett has been booked in Marion County Jail 22 times since Dec. 1997 on charges ranging from traffic violations, drug possession, kidnapping and false imprisonment. Bennett has been arrested three times in the last 12 months.

Anybody mixed martial arts participant testing positive for steroids is a disgrace in my opinion. At least with as high levels that Royce got, which means he didn't get it through supplements.
So Royce right now until he admits it and gets a proper punishment for it is a disgrace.
Melvin is defintely a disgrace. I don't even need to say more about that.
Tito trying to commit suicide doesn't make him a disgrace of MMA in my book. There are personal problems and there are problems that directly affects the sport and it's participants. I havn't heard the story about him trying to commit suicide but if it's true, I'm sure he didn't do it to harm anybody.

Charles "Krazy Horse" Bennett is a huge disgrace to this sport. He's been in and out of jail for a while now, doing drugs, beating his girl and being in prison for all kinds of things. Him having problems has nothing to do with it. Vitor Belforts sister got kidnapped and I believe killed, it doesn't mean he has to go on a rampage committing crimes and as far as I know he hasn't.
Everybody's got a different life story but I don't buy this "he has problems, she has problems" crap. Even if you feel sorry for them if they had a tough upbringing and stuff, it doesn't mean that they havn't had chances to pull themselves together.
Beating your girlfriend (that's what domestic violence means right?) when on probation doesn't sound like a guy with character to me.
