Twitter reacts to Rampage vs. King Mo
Quinton “Rampage” Jackson earned a controversial decision win over Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal Saturday night at Bellator 120, despite Lawal score a number of takedowns, controlling his opponent on the ground, and on the fence.
Afterwards, an irate Lawal directed anger at Bellator founder and CEO Bjorn Rebney.
“Bjorn, you know what's up man,” said Lawal. “Ya dick riding ass you know I won that fight, cut me if you don't like it!”
Lawal and Rebney later sorted out their differences, and Jackson showed a commendable degree of restraint, offering a respectful assessment of the fight, and calling for a rematch, this time in Lawal's hometown.
Reactions on Twitter went back and forth.

Mike Brown @mikebrownmma
Scoring not necessarily bad but a little weird tonight. They were heavily favoring strikes over wrestling. It's usually the exact opposite.
Adam Martin @MMAdamMartin
I had Mo winning 29-28. Competitive fight for sure but Mo controlled where the fight took place. @mmadecisions
