History will be made on the 11th February, as renowned American fighter Charles “Krazy Horse” Bennett steps into Manchester’s Victoria Warehouse arena for his debut UK fight.

One of the biggest names in MMA over the past two decades, Bennett has competed in over sixty professional contests worldwide since his cutting his competitive teeth back in 1999, holding a 30-30-2 record.

He will be up against the undefeated Lawrence Fitzpatrick in the headline fight at Tanko Fighting Championships 3 – a clash that is causing a considerable buzz amongst the combat sports community.

Bennett has continually sent shockwaves across the world throughout his illustrious career, garnering attention for his memorable appearances on promotions like PRIDE FC, King of the Cage, and World Extreme Fighting, and also for his infamous, bad-blooded rift with fellow MMA icon Wanderlei Silva (a decade-long feud still burning bright today).

Bennett’s bravado has made him a cult icon in Japan and earned him a colossal fan following. Considered one of the most colourful characters in the history of the sport, “Krazy Horse” is set to send hundreds of fight fans flocking to Victoria Warehouse to witness his first contest on British soil.

Tanko Fighting Championships 3 will take place on 11th February, boasting a mouth-watering fight card with Bennett vs Fitzpatrick in the headline slot.
