'Rampage' Jackson calls 'King Mo' Lawal a coward following Bellator 134 victory over Cheick Kongo

It's no secret that Quinton "Rampage" Jackson and Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal aren't pals -- having sparred both verbally and physically in the past -- but Jackson couldn't resist getting in an extra dig after Lawal's Bellator 134 fight with Cheick Kongo.

It's unlikely that Muhammed Lawal and Quinton Jackson will ever meet again as the main event of a PPV consider "Rampage" is returning to his old stomping grounds in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), but that's no impediment to the two taking verbal jabs at each other.

"King Mo" took the safe path to victory at Bellator 134, using his wrestling skills to take down the naturally bigger heavyweight Cheick Kongo, while avoiding the dangerous striking exchanges standing up. Kongo's teammate "Rampage" was none too please by Lawal's performance, vocalizing his frustration with "King Mo" on Twitter.

It's hardly a surprising response from Jackson, as he's expressed his displeasure with "dry humping" in fights in the past, and while you can bet the former UFC light heavyweight champ would love to get his hands on Lawal again, that likely won't occur unless "King Mo" opts to  jump ship from Bellator to UFC.

Until then this tweet from King Mo will count as an indirect response.
