Tickets are still being sold for Bellator 175: Rampage vs. King Mo 2. The blockbuster event will feature a second bout between long-time rivals Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal.
The two men have had a rivalry for years, but it came to a head when they finally faced off at Bellator 120 in May, 2014. That night, Rampage had his hand raised, winning a contentious unanimous decision.
Even after the fight, though, the two continued to feud. Rampage would win his next two bouts and now has a Bellator record of 4-0 and has won five bouts in a row, but still, he is bothered by the first King Mo fight.
Although victorious, Rampage claims that he should have been able to knock out his rival. Meanwhile, Mo feels as if he should have been able to take the fight and have his hand raised after the three rounds were over. Later this month, the two will settle the score for once and for all.
It will be a sensational matchup, as both men boast devastating knockout power. While Rampage was often known for his huge slams earlier in his career, he has leaned on his boxing skills more and more in the last several years. Lawal remains a very talented wrestler and has multiple talents with which he can attempt to win the fight.
Also taking center stage will be Emmanuel Sanchez, who hopes that he can hold off former Bellator Bantamweight Champion Marcos Galvao in their scheduled three-round bout. This is what most would call a classic striker-grappler matchup, as Sanchez likes to ply his trade with combinations and fancy kicks, while Galvao depends heavily on his extremely dangerous ground game.
Earlier in the evening, former Pride Fighting Championships standout Sergei Kharitonov will attempt to add to a long list of KO victims when he faces Chase Gormley in the Bellator cage. Gormley comes into the bout having won two fights in a row, including a decision victory over UFC veteran Joey Beltran. He is on a real hot streak, having won seven out of eight fights going back to 2011.
Bellator 175: Rampage vs. King Mo 2 will take place live at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Ill., on March 31. If you want to be there live to see this star-studded event, make sure to get your tickets today!
