Rampage Jackson fires back at Daniel Cormier: 'Watch what you say or get the taste smacked out of your mouth'

Jon Kopaloff

Daniel Cormier has been playing cheerleader for Muhammed Lawal ... much to the chagrin of Bellator 120 opponent Quinton Jackson.

What happens on Instagram ... doesn't stay on Instagram.

Undefeated Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight contender Daniel Cormier was all over social media this week, sending well wishes to Team Thirsty cohort Muhammed Lawal, who fights Quinton Jackson this Saturday night (May 17, 2014) in the main event of the Bellator 120 pay-per-view (PPV).

"DC" expects "King Mo" to put an end to "Rampage's" career (see his full comments here).

As expected, that went over like a lead balloon with Jackson, who has a rivalry with Lawal dating back several years, and told reporters at the Bellator 120 open workouts (via MMA Junkie) that he would kindly ask Cormier to put a lid on it, or suffer the consequences.

His words:

"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? Okay. Daniel needs to watch what he says before I smack the taste out of his mouth."

Under a different set of circumstances, they might have crossed paths.

By the time Cormier dropped down from heavyweight, Jackson already set sail for the Bellator mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion. "Rampage" held the 205-pound title during his Octagon career, but struggled during the second half of his run due to injuries, apathy and wrestlers who hump him.

I guess now is as good a time as any to mention that "King Mo" is a multi-time national freestyle wrestling champion.
