It all went down last night (Fri., Mar. 31, 2017) at Bellator 175 live on Spike TV from inside the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois, as mixed martial arts (MMA) legend Quinton “Rampage” Jackson looked to double down on Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal and beat him for the second time in three years. While Jackson enjoyed not having to cut weight for the heavyweight showdown, the knockout artist wasn’t able to keep Lawal off of him for the majority of the bout. “Rampage” did land a few hard shots in Round 2, but “King Mo” stayed glued to him like new paint on a car.
In the end, Lawal was able to capture the unanimous decision win with a strong third round and exact revenge from his previous loss to Jackson back in 2014. It wasn’t the most exciting fight of the night, but “King Mo” did what he needed to do to stay out of trouble, stifle “Rampage” and not allow him to unload offensively, and sap Jackson’s energy.

In addition to the main event, Bellator 175 also offered exciting main card matchups that featured a scintillating knockout by heavyweight Sergei Kharitonov and an impressive decision win by featherweight contender Emmanuel Sanchez.
