The Bellator 120 results are in and the match of Quinton “Rampage” Jackson VS King Mo Lawal has been decided by a unanimous decision.
In a related report by The Inquisitr, according to Meisha Tate the match between Ronda Rousey and Gina Carano is a bad joke.
Well, the two MMA fighters of Bellator 120 may have had similar feelings based upon the aggressive way they treated each other. The smack-talking started early with Lawal’s friend Daniel Cormier, a UFC light heavyweight fighter, claiming that Jackson would lose horribly and have his career ended. Jackson was dismissive of the claim:
“Why do I care about Daniel Cormier? Is he in my league? He’s just talking ’cause that’s his boy. That’s what people do. I don’t think about stuff like that. That don’t bother me. I don’t care about what other people say. I know what I’m going to do to ‘Mo.’ I don’t care what Daniel says. Daniel can’t get in the cage and fight for ‘Mo,’ can he? OK.”
The match between Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and his opponent Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal almost started earlier than intended on Saturday. When it came time for the weigh-in, Jackson shoved Lawal into a Bellator 120 security member and the bad blood continued on through the night.
The first round belong exclusively to Lawal, with Rampage being taken down multiple times. But near the end he broke free and managed to open a cut on Lawal’s left eye. The second round saw both competitors trading shots, but the numbers went to Jackson by only a little. But in the third round Jackson unleashed a flurry of blows and Lawal resorted to using takedowns. In the end, there was not a decisive factor defining the fight and it would all come down to the numbers.
As might be expected, the MMA fighters did not hug or fist bump at the end of the fight as is customary right before the Bellator 120 results were handed down by the judges, who decided that Rampage managed to barely out-strike his opponent 29 to 28. As might be expected, neither fighters were happy with the result and King Mo even claimed, “Rampage, nothing against you, but I beat you.” Jackson is already calling for a rematch:
“He did better than I thought he was going to do, I’m not happy with my victory tonight. I wanted to knock King Mo out.”
The Bellator 120 results determined the light heavyweight tournament final, and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson advances to a title shot against champion Emanuel Newton. Jackson’s record now stands at 35-11 MMA and Lawal is at 12-4 MMA.
