Rampage Jackson vs. Christian M’Pumbu booked for Bellator 110 on Feb. 28 at Mohegan Sun on Spike TV

In addition, King Mo takes on Mikhail Zayats.

Who said the tournament format was dead?

Quinton Jackson will kick off the Bellator MMA light heavyweight tournament on Feb. 28, 2014, when he locks horns with former champion Christian M'Pumbu, in a 205-pound headliner that emanates from the Mohegan Sun Resort & Casino, live on Spike TV.

Said Jackson:

"This is what Bellator is all about. I've never felt better, and now it's about getting the belt. Bellator is all about the tournaments, and if that's what you need to do to get that belt, that's what I'm going to do. M'Pumbu is up first, and when I finish him, it's King Mo or Zayats, and then it's onto the belt, simple as that."

Joining "Rampage" in the Bellator 110 tournament is Muhammed Lawal, who can position himself for a fight against his on again, off again buddy with a win over Mikhail Zayats in main card action. The winner of that bout would move on to face the winner of Attila Vegh vs. Emmanuel Newton.

Jackson made his Spike TV debut with a thunderous knockout over Joey Beltran at the Bellator 108 event last November (watch it). His win over "The Mexicutioner" -- also a former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) fighter -- snapped a three fight losing streak dating back to late 2011.

How this affects his stint in TNA remains to be seen, as does the future of former opponent Tito Ortiz, but it would be wise to keep a lookout for rubber mallets.

How about it, fight fans, can "Rampage" go all the way?
