‘Rampage’ is Back At Bellator 157: Dynamite 2
MMA Junkie – Bellator has set the date for its second MMA and kickboxing crossover event, and it will feature the return of Quinton Jackson to the promotion.
Bellator 157: Dynamite 2 will take place June 24 at Scottrade Center in St. Louis. In the main event, “Rampage” Jackson (36-11 MMA, 3-0 BMMA) will meet Japanese Olympic judo gold medalist Satoshi Ishii (14-5-1 MMA, 0-0 BMMA) at a 215-pound catchweight. Promotion officials today confirmed the event and fight booking to MMAjunkie after an initial report from ESPN’s Brett Okamoto.
This should be a big event for Bellator since Rampage usually pulls in a huge audience. There is something about a large, terrifying looking man that can knock somebody out with either hand. He has a big personality and goes into each fight looking to end it. He doesn’t want to roll around on the mat and have the judges decide the outcome. He wants to knock your head off and give the judges a souvenir to go home with. Oh, you had that round as a 10-9…here is my opponent’s skull. I am glad Rampage is back fighting and the legal contract issues are behind him. He may be aging, but nothing can take away his power.
