Bellator returns Friday

Bellator MMA gets back underway this week after an extended winter break. And they aren’t wasting any time delivering a stacked card that features both ex-UFC champion “Rampage” Jackson and ex-Strikeforce champion “King Mo” Lawal. To add a bit of interest, should both combatants win their opening round tournament fights, we will see a Jackson/Lawal matchup in the light heavyweight finals. Both men seem to have put their differences in the past, but one has to imagine that some bad blood would boil to surface if they find themselves on a collision course for the title.

The entire card is as follows and the main card can be seen FREE on Spike TV. The event goes down at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut. For ticket information visit Bellator.com for more information.
