Former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton "Rampage" Jackson won a controversial decision to capture the Bellator light heavyweight tournament against rival Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal. The fight went three rounds, 15-minutes, with many MMA fans thinking King Mo did enough to steal the victory - but the judges didn't see it that way.


Many thought the fight would be scored 29-28 in favor of Lawal, but Rampage won the decision, picking up a clean sweep of 29-28 against his longtime rival. It should be interesting to see what happens, as Rampage will have a shot against Bellator light heavyweight champion Emanuel Newton, despite being part-time training partners.

"Emanuel and I both share the same coach, the great Antonio McKee. That guy is the secret to my success in addition to my coaches at the Wolfslair," Rampage noted following his victory. "But the fact of it is, Emanuel and I, we both share Antonio McKee. We train together sometimes."
