Former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton Jackson has experienced a small career resurgence since signing with Bellator in late 2013, defeating Joey Beltran, Christian M’ Pumbu, and most recently, former Strikeforce champion Muhammed Lawal with a close decision at the promotion’s inaugural pay-per-view (PPV) show on May 17. “Rampage” attributed much of that success to a knee procedure that helped him regain some of the vigor he had during his insanely powerful Pride FC and UFC...

Currently riding an impressive three-fight winning streak, former Strikeforce middleweight champion Ronaldo Souza will look to make it 4-0 inside the Octagon at UFN 50 when he faces "The Dreamcatcher" Gegard Mousasi in a rematch from their clash in 2008. The two first fought in the finale of Dream's middleweight Grand Prix where Mousasi emerged victorious after downing the Brazilian with a deadly upkick as Souza was trying to jump into his guard. But, don't think that means "Jacare" isn't confident heading...
