Rampage Jackson: I signed with Bellator to beat the s--t out of King Mo

Esther Lin/ MMA Fighting

Just because the former rivals have now squashed their beef, doesn't mean they won't find themselves face-to-face inside the Bellator cage.

One rivalry that never got fixed inside a mixed martial arts (MMA) cage was the bitter beef between former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion Quinton Jackson and ex-Strikeforce 205-pound titleholder Muhammed Lawal, due to the fact that they were employed buy two different promotions.

But now that they're both fighting under the Bellator umbrella, the fight may finally happen; even if the two talented fighters have already buried the hatchet.

Despite calling a truce, "Rampage" and "King Mo" might have to put their new-found friendship aside for one night if they both reach the finals of the Bellator light heavyweight tournament.

Jackson's words to Sherdog:

"I knew I was never going to fight [Lawal] in any of the other organizations I was with, because I knew he wasn't going to come. I think I can be 100-percent honest with you when I say that half the reason I signed with Bellator was because I was signing with Viacom -- not just an MMA organization, but a whole big company -- and that I could finally get a chance to beat the s--t out of ‘King Mo' for all the stuff he said. But I forgive him."

A couple things have to happen before "Rampage" and "King Mo" settle their now-friendly differences.

They each have to win their respective fights tonight (Feb. 28, 2014) at Bellator 110 -- which goes down at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut -- as Jackson meets Christian M'Pumbu in the headlining bout and Lawal takes on Mikhail Zayats in the co-main.

And as we've seen in the past, crazy things have happened once the cage door slams shut.
