Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, 35, fights Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal on Saturday at Bellator 120 in Southaven, Mississippi, live on PPV.
It is common in a fight camp to try to bring in fighters who can mimic the opponent's style. Rampage brought in Jason "Mayhem" Miller, who had trained with Lawal at Team Quest.
Jason Miller has gone through a well-publicized series of incidents which indicated he was not suited to be fighting at the time, but according to Rampage, not only was Mayhem an invaluable sparring partner, he is making a return to the cage.
"I mean, Mayhem knows King Mo in and out," said Jackson. "Mayhem trained with a lot of different people in MMA, and he mimicked King Mo perfectly. Mayhem is a great training partner and sparring partner. He’s very knowledgeable in MMA. And you know, Mayhem saw me make a comeback, and that has motivated him to make a comeback. So he has decided to make a comeback in MMA. He finally got his knee fixed."
