Bellator 110 Highlights: Rampage Jackson KO’s Christian M’Pumbu

Bellator MMA kicked off their season ten schedule in Uncasville, Connecticut, this week and with it, eleven fights for the event.

The card marked the opening rounds of the promotion’s light-heavyweight and featherweight tournaments, with the night’s event being headlined by two bouts featuring Quinton Jackson vs. Christian M’Pumbu and Muhammed Lawal vs. Mikhail Zayats.

As Jackson and Lawal both won their respective matches, the two are now set to square off at the BMMA light-heavyweight tournament finale. The winner of that match will then face off against BMMA 205 pound champion Attila Vegh.

In terms of when Jackson and Lawal may face one another, it’s possible that Bellator may assign them to the promotion’s inaugural pay-per-view, which is set for May 17th.

Bellator’s CEO Bjorn Rebney announced the PPV at Friday’s 110 card, with further notice that the event would be headlined by a trilogy bout between Eddie Alvarez and Michael Chandler, with the winner of the match becoming BMMA’s new lightweight champion. The bout will mark Alvarez’s first title defense since claiming the belt from Chandler at last November’s Bellator 106 show.

As the May 17th PPV has yet to have any other fights assigned to it, the addition of Jackson vs. Lawal to the night’s festivities would give the event two more – certainly one more – marquee names to bolster the Alvarez vs. Chandler led sort.

For a review of Bellator 110, here are the night’s highlights.  

The shortest distance between any two points is a straight line. Whether or not you think you can or you can't, you are right. Fast / Good / Cheap...pick 2. Better an honest word to the ear, than a stiff punch to the jaw; ego kills. A hall passed through with the doors open, is a...?

    Pretty good event. There is no way this company is not becoming a sore in the side of UFC.

    For sure the Rampage – King Mo fight gets on the PPV card.

    I really like Bellator but the end of Fridays card with the hootin & holler between Rampage & King Mo was too much like wrestling. The selling of the fight has kicked off & I've long looked forward to these two going at it.
