Bellator 110 to Feature Rampage Jackson in Tournament

Bellator 110 to Feature Rampage Jackson in Tournament

UFC-turned-Bellator star Quinton “Rampage” Jackson will be taking part in the upcoming Season 10 light-heavyweight tournament, and his quarterfinal opponent will be former champ Christian M’Pumbu, according to a release from Bellator. The match-up will take place at Bellator 110 on February 28 at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut.

Also competing in the tournament is Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal, who will be facing Mikhail Zayats in another quarterfinal bracket. Rampage and King Mo have had a long-simmering beef stemming from King Mo’s days in Strikeforce, so it’s anticipated that if the two do meet up at some point in the tournament, there will be heat.

However – HOWEVER – Bellator tournaments are notorious for waylaying the best laid plans of mice and men, so it is far from a sure thing the two will ever face each other.

Rampage’s debut in the Bellator organization saw him defeat fellow UFC vet Joey Beltran by knockout.
