K.J. Noons will get the opportunity to avenge one of his two career defeats when he meets Charles “Krazy Horse” Bennett in a featured lightweight bout at Strikeforce “Fedor vs. Werdum” on June 26 at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif.
Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker confirmed the rematch with Sherdog.com on Wednesday.
The often legally-embattled Bennett dropped Noons and finished him with follow-up punches in the first round at EliteXC “Destiny” in February 2007. Bennett has gone 4-3 since the Noons victory; he was knocked out by Bobby Green in the first round at a KOTC event in December 2009.
