Weekend Rundown: Green Whacks ‘Krazy Horse’

By Brian Knapp Dec 21, 2009
Affliction veteran Bobby Green needed a shade more than two minutes to put away Charles “Krazy Horse” Bennett at King of the Cage “Fight 4 Hope” on Thursday at the San Manuel Casino in Highland, Calif.

The polarizing Bennett has spent time in and out of prison. Shortly after the opening bell, Green capitalized on his opponent’s notoriously poor technique and found his chin with a punch that finished the fight.

Knocked out for the second time in his career, Bennett met his end 2:17 into round one. The 23-year-old Green, who opened eyes with his admirable effort in a submission loss to UFC veteran Dan Lauzon at Affliction “Day of Reckoning,” has won 10 of his past 12 bouts.

EliteXC veteran Jon Murphy also came out of the event victorious, as he submitted Dave Huckaba with a first round North-South choke in a rematch of their 2007 encounter. Meanwhile, heavyweight champion Tony Lopez and junior welterweight titleholder Rick Legere retained their crowns.

Carvalho Captures WFC Title

Bruno Carvalho rendered Jean Francois-Lenogue unconscious with a third-round rear-naked choke to capture the vacant World Free Fight Challenge middleweight championship at WFC 9 “Restart” on Sunday at Hala Tivoli in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

The nephew of vale tudo legend Edson Carvalho, the 27-year-old Brazilian has strung together five consecutive wins, four of them finishes. Francois-Lenogue, 37, a Pride Fighting Championships veteran, had not been stopped since September 2004.

Mewborn Submits Carroll at WBFN 24

Maximum Fighting Championship veteran Dave Mewborn submitted Roger Carroll with a second-round brabo choke in the featured attraction at Wild Bill’s Fight Night 24 on Friday at Wild Bill’s Atlanta in Duluth, Ga. Mewborn cinched the choke and coaxed the tapout 2:53 into round two.

One of the top middleweight prospects in the Southeast, Mewborn traded takedowns with Carroll and survived an attempted guillotine choke in the first round. When the action hit the ground in the second, he seized the opportunity.

Mewborn -- a 29-year-old Brazilian jiu-jitsu brown belt based out of the same Hardcore Gym that produced World Extreme Cagefighting bantamweight champion Brian Bowles -- has posted back-to-back submission victories since his decision defeat to Solomon Hutcherson in February.
