As I’m writing this, I am now 39-years-old and I would like to say that I am happy to report that I can most definitely ride a bicycle. I know, I know. You are absolutely amazed, but before you start showering me with roses and praise, let me tell you — it did not come … Read more
The inaugural Bellator PPV finally took place Saturday night in Mississippi with Rampage Jackson taking on King Mo Lawal in the main event. Trust me, I’ll get to that fight in just a second, but I just wanted to give some general feedback regarding the PPV main card after having about 12 hours to digest it
The Bellator 120 PPV event is set to take place on Saturday, May 17, in Southaven, Miss. The event will be headlined by the light heavyweight tournament final between Rampage Jackson and King Mo Lawal. The original main event between Eddie Alvarez and Michael Chandler was scraped a few days ago when Alvarez suffered a concussion in training. Chandler will now take on Will Brooks for the Bellator interim lightweight title.
Well, it looks as though Bellator’s second attempt to hold it’s first PPV event could have gone up in smoke again. Bellator lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez has suffered a concussion in training, and will not be able to defend his title in the Bellator 120 PPV main event against arch rival Michael Chandler.
With the Bellator 120 fight card now set, the schedule for fight week has been completed. Bellator 120 will be held on Saturday, May 17thfrom The Landers Center, located just outside of Memphis. The night begins on Spike at 8:00 PM EST, transitioning to pay-per-view with five fights on pay-per-view.
Following their light heavyweight tournament semifinal wins at Bellator 110 Friday night, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and King Mo Lawal nearly came to blows inside the Bellator cage live on Spike TV. Mo won his bout over Mikhail Zayats via unanimous decision, while Rampage defeated former champ Christian M’Pumbu via first round KO. Rampage and Mo will now meet in the tournament finals later this season.
Quinton “Rampage” Jackson was vocal about his displeasure with the UFC after leaving and traditionally hasn’t been the easiest guy to work with. However, it seems the former UFC light heavyweight champ is right at home in Bellator (at least for now) — so much so that he agreed to enter their tournament — and even fight two men at once if it came down to that.
