    That was a nice entertaining fight card and the Rampage Jackson vs King Mo fight was a good chess match by both fighters. Both fighters fought smart and I have much respect for the sportsmanship shown between Rampage Jackson and King Mo after their hard fought fight. And I enjoyed seeing the sportsmanship between King Mo and Ryan Bader in the cage as well. I saw Chase Gormley tweet that may have been his last fight, but I hope Bellator chooses to resign him and I hope he continues his MMA career. He was doing quite well when he was using his jab, but for some unknown reason, he simply stopped throwing his jab. A nice patient victory for Noad Lahat. Noad Lahat vs Emmanuel Sanchez would be entertaining. Emmanuel Sanchez is pretty much like Andre Harrison, he just finds a way to win. Nothing flashy, he just wins. It worked great for Floyd Mayweather in boxing. I know Sergei Kharitonov wants to get a rematch against Javy Ayala, but a Rampage Jackson vs Sergei Kharitonov matchup would be very intriguing. However, Rampage Jackson apparently has to return to the UFC and honor the contract he signed there. King Mo vs Ryan Bader at Bellator 180 was not such a bad idea, nice matchup.
