Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson and Muhammed ‘King Mo’ Lawal hyped up their forthcoming Bellator light-heavyweight tournament final last night with a good-old fashioned rucus in the cage after their respective wins.
Following his first round knockout victory over former Bellator champion Christian M’Pumbu, ‘Rampage’ was fired up speaking on the mic, warning the rest of the division that anyone who challenged him would meet a similar fate.
At that stage ‘King Mo’ came into the cage to confront him and ‘Rampage’ told him that he was next. The two tried to go face-to-face, but others in the cage intervened and pulled them apart as they continued shouting at each other.
This did look staged, and indeed backstage after the show a venue official hinted to Sherdog reporter Jack Encarnacao that was the case, but there has been bad blood between the two fighters for a number of years dating back long before they were Bellator fighters and there will be a significant amount of interest in a fight between the two.
Check out how it all unfolded for yourselves in the video below.
