Bellator 175 Rampage vs King Mo 2 Fight Card
Quinton “Rampage” Jackson’s Bellator MMA career has somehow wound itself into Rosemont, Illinois, this week, as he’ll handle Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal at Bellator 175 on Friday.
The latest chapter of Jackson’s profession has actually been fascinating, to say the least. In 2013, he enjoyed to leave the UFC and sign with Bellator. Less than two years later, he was so annoyed with his new promo that he (unsuccessfully) attempted to terminate the contract.
That and Bellator’s own identity shift from a competition format to Scott Coker’s “camping tent pole” schedule have sort of had Jackson all over the place.
He’s fought at 3 different weights and technically won a light heavyweight tournament, however he never ever got a title shot out of it. He fought Lawal in 2014– and Satoshi Ishii of all people. This week, it’s Lawal once again. At heavyweight.
Jackson won the first fight by means of consentaneous decision. Let’s take a better take a look at how the second one might play out.
