According to a Jan. 20 report from Bellator.com, Quinton "Rampage" Jackson and "King Mo" Lawal are set to return to action at Bellator 110.

The event goes down on Feb. 28 at Connecticut’s Mohegan Sun.

Jackson fights former Bellator champ Christian M’Pumbu in the opening round of the promotion's Season 10 light heavyweight tournament, and Lawal will be facing Russian submission ace Mikhail Zayats.

“This is what Bellator is all about,” Jackson said. “I’ve never felt better, and now it’s about getting the belt. Bellator is all about the tournaments, and if that’s what you need to do to get that belt, that’s what I’m going to do. M’Pumbu is up first, and when I finish him, it’s King Mo or Zayats, and then it’s onto the belt, simple as that.”

With Jackson and Lawal lined up opposite each other in this season's light heavyweight tournament, it seems the promotion would enjoy nothing more than a final that includes both men in it.

"Rampage" vs "King Mo" would undoubtedly mean big ratings for Spike TV, and Lawal plans to make it to a championship fight.

“I’m not going to sit here and say I’m changing up my whole game plan, and you are going to see a new fighter,” Lawal said. “That’s just not me. I know what I do, I know who I am, and that’s who you are going to see on February 28th, plain and simple. Me. It’s all about getting that belt.”

Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney says this season's light heavyweight tournament is absolutely stacked, and he can't wait for the new season to get underway.

“Since we first partnered with Quinton, I’ve been working with him to get everything set for his inclusion in a Bellator tournament,” Rebney said. “Working together, we’ve now made that a reality. This is without question the deepest Light Heavyweight Tournament we’ve ever done. Rampage, M’Pumbu, Zayats and Mo are all monsters and I can’t think of a better way to kick off our tenth season on Spike.”
