Earlier this week bitter rivals Charles ‘Krazy Horse’ Bennett and former PRIDE champion Wanderlei Silva got into a war of words at a hotel in Japan. (Watch that video here).
Well, it appears that the bad blood between Wanderlei Silva and Krazy Horse is still boiling as the two went at it again, this time backstage following Bennet’s seven-second knockout victory at RIZIN 2.

If you aren’t familiar with the rivalry, “Krazy Horse” got into a locker room brawl against Chute Boxe’s Brazilian jiu-jitsu coach back in 2005 at PRIDE Shockwave.
Silva’s BJJ coach at the time, Cristiano Marcello caught “Krazy Horse” in a triangle choke and put Bennett to sleep.
“Krazy Horse” claims to have knocked Wanderlei Silva out cold, this after he woke up from being choked unconscious.
In this video below, you can catch Bennett’s version of the story.
Both “Krazy Horse” and “The Axe Murderer” are now fighting for the Japanese promotion RIZIN. Bennett competed earlier today scoring a jaw dropping seven-second knockout over Minoru Kimura.
Silva is set to fight in the RIZIN 16-man heavyweight Grand Prix tournament and is bracketed into the quarterfinals, which take place at RIZIN 3 on December 29.
Wanderlei was last seen in action under the UFC banner in 2013 where he scored a knockout victory over Brian Stann. Silva was later suspended for life by the Nevada Athletic Commission for evading a random drug test. His suspension was later dropped to three years, which will be up in May 2017.
Silva is also signed to Bellator MMA and is expected to fight for the promotion in 2017, possibly against rival Chael Sonnen.
