The main event of BUSHIDO VOLUME 5 features Takanori Gomi versus Charles "Krazy Horse" Bennett. Representing the Kiguchi Dojo, Gomi has established himself as one of the world's elite fighters at 155 pounds. With KO power and an incredible ground game this Japanese star boasts a record of 16-2 and is undefeated in BUSHIDO (with wins over Jadsen Costa, Ralph Gracie, and Fabio Mello). Fighting out of Ocala, Florida, Charles "Krazy Horse" Bennett arrives in Japan as a highly regarded up and coming star. Though this will be his BUSHIDO debut, Bennett has made a name for himself in the American mixed martial arts promotion, "King of the Cage." Exciting, aggressive and unpredictable, "Krazy Horse" is known for his crowd-pleasing body slams as well as his celebratory post-fight back flips. Gomi versus Bennett ... two contrasting fight styles ... who will be victorious?
