In the main event of the night Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson knocked out Christian M'Pumbu to advance to the finals of the Bellator light heavyweigh tournament. During the post-fight, Jackson was joined in the ring by fellow finalist King Mo, and the two had a bit of an altercation:
Lawal will meet Rampage in the finals of the tournament and the animosity between the two is probably real, but this altercation may not have been.
A Sherdog journalist tweeted tonight that he spoke with Mike Mazzulli, head of the Mohegan Sun Athletic Commission:
Mohegan regulator Mike Mazzulli tells me likely no sanctions for Rampage/Mo scuffle b/c Bellator told him at weigh-ins it would happen

Both King Mo and Muhammed Lawal also wrestling professional for TNA on Spike TV and it's not unlikely that the scuffle was a bit staged to build up hype for the fight. Regardless, the two will fight for real next month to determine the Bellator tournament champion.
