Tension! Rampage Jackson and King Mo Lawal engage in war of words on TSN's 'Off The Record'

Jon Kopaloff

Both Bellator light heavyweight competitors joined "Off The Record" host Michael Landsberg to hype up their Bellator 120 pay-per-view fight, and things got heated pretty quickly.

It's safe to say that Quinton Jackson and Muhammed Lawal do not like each other.

The pair will finally meet at Bellator 120 to determine the Bellator season 10 light heavyweight tournament winner, capping off a rivalry that has been brewing for quite some time.

Both "Rampage" and "King Mo" were guests on TSN's "Off The Record" with Michael Landsberg, treating Canadian fans to another memorable segment on the number one sport's station in the country. The host, who has had his fair share of memorable guests, asked Lawal if this feud was similar to a rivalry seen in pro wrestling, and if both light heavyweight sluggers were faking it to gain more exposure.

"I think your wrong, man. Why would we fake something like this, know what I'm saying? We both fighting in the cage for money...we ain't cool, we ain't boys, we're fighting for that money. If money's involved, you're going to have an argument. All that other fake stuff you been talking about kind of gets old. That's what the fans say, because they watch pro wrestling."

Spoken like a true prize fighter.

While the former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion answered questions, his counterpart remained calm, with his hands clasped under his chin, waiting for his turn to shed some light on their rivalry:

"Mo don't like me because he's a fanboy. I already took your spot... Mo popped off at me first. I had no idea who Mo was years ago because I'm not a fanboy. I'm sorry to admit, I don't watch MMA. Mo Lawal was a fanboy. He got mad at me because I didn't recognize him the couple of times that I came face-to-face with him. I didn't know who he was. I didn't watch him."

From that point forward, both combatants didn't let each other speak, shouting at each other -- and Landsberg was more or less silent while both Bellator fighters traded verbal jabs.

It was almost impossible to track down their words, since they really didn't want to let the other speak. This is the first time since their post-fight brawl that these two athletes were on the same broadcast as one another.

Check out a snippet of their argument here.

These two hard-hitting light heavyweights will finally meet at Bellator 120 in Memphis, Tennessee, on May 17, 2014, for all the marbles -- and to see who challenges Bellator light heavyweight champion Emanuel Newton at a later date.
