Rampage Jackson and King Mo Lawal meet in the Bellator cage at the promotion’s first pay-per-view event on Saturday night in Memphis, but they nearly didn’t make it that far, mixing it up at Friday’s weigh-ins.

    2 of TNA Wrestlings finest right there. The heat between these 2 is about as believable as DC and The Barista

  • Shakir Hanifa

    HAHAHAHHA JOKE OF THE MONTH. TNA on its finest.

  • TheCerealKiller

    If you buy this, you are a bigger joke than this fight. No wonder some of my friends think MMA is the same as wrestling.

    • taylor2008

      LIke this never happens in boxing? I am not buying this fight but I have seen the drama and shoving in boxing too.

      • scratchface

        what makes this fight a joke is the contrived rivalry

        • Nate “THE CHEAT” Marquardt

          Any bets Rampage and Mo fight 2-3 more times over the next year or so so Bellator can try and milk their “STAGED” rivalry for every dime they can

        • taylor2008

          I agree. I “heard” that these guys truly dont like each other, but who knows? I think Rampage will KO him.

          • jeff

            They have been goin off on each other for years. It’s real.

          • taylor2008

            Thats what I thought. I heard something a long time ago that Rampage wanted to see Mo come to the UFC so he could put a beating on him. Rampage actually went to Mo.

          • jeff

            Rampage has called him “queen Mo” and all kinds of stuff. I’ll be very shocked if Rampage loses. I think he will ko him unless Mo is able to just take him down. Rampage has only been finished a couple times and I believe only once in the UFC. Which was Jones.

    • Nate “THE CHEAT” Marquardt

      Couldn’t be worse than when my neighbor came over because one of my buddies had blocked his driveway and the Benevidez/ Mighty Mouse fight was on and he started laughing and asked us if we were into MIDGET FIGHTING.
      But yeah I’m with ya Bellator trying to combine MMA with FAKE WRASSLIN is a compete utter disgrace

  • Nate “THE CHEAT” Marquardt

    “STAGED” more TNA b.s. getting old. Byork will do anything to try and salvage one more PPV. I predict a complete flop. Bellator had a real chance of pulling some descent numbers until Alvarez pulled out. They are going to regret big time not moving it to spike whether they ever admit it or not.

    we have seen pushing and shoving in the ufc, dana white is using the chael and wand altercation to promote TUF on fightpass. to me, this is no different. I don’t like the so called rivalry, but I am a mma fan and ive always liked watching rampage fight. so, if I can get enough people to chip in, then i’ll watch it

  • Ron Bidelman Jr.

    For once I’d rather see women fight!!

  • Bob Sacamanto

    Actually this “beef” goes back to before rampage went to Viacom. Not just a t.n.a grudge.

  • Bob Sacamanto

    Actually this makes you wonder if rampage is intimidated by mo, just like when wandy pushed rampage before their last fight.

  • Bendo’s Abs

    This is going to be a recipe for disaster. I just wonder if Bellator folds up shop after this sham of a PPV.

  • Read literature more often

    I see a lot of Internet Geniuses out tonight.. LOL

    Horrendous RATM cover at the end of the video.

    Rampage went the distance with Jones and Machida without being knocked out or even taking much damage. Sure that’s no reason to have any respect for Rampage. I don’t think King Mo has a chance to do anything here.
    Plus, I only like fighters who are #1. I feel bad about myself if I am not worshipping a total stranger, who everyone thinks is the best.

    I don’t care about the drama leading up to these fights … whether contrived, real or what have you. Could care less whether the drama is fake or not. I don’t watch or pay attention to the drama or so-called rivalries. Stats, styles, and a fighter’s resume are what hype a fight for me. A fighter’s persona does influence (however slightly) whether I root for or against him (or her). But that’s about it. Digging their fighting style influences me far, far more.

    I always respect a fighter as a fighter for their abilities even if I have zero respect for their on screen persona (cuz really, let’s not pretend we know them personally as human beings based on what we see on screen because we don’t).

    As long as this sport stays 100% genuine inside the cage, I don’t care what happens outside of it. That brand of dramatization is for daytime soap operas. Or wrestling. (Yeah, I went there). Neither of which have ever interested me in the least.
