On Friday, March 31, Bellator MMA will host its 175th event from the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Ill.
In the night’s main event, veteran Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal will meet for a second time in a heavyweight contest. The pair locked horns at Bellator 120 in 2014, with Jackson earning a contentious decision victory. Since that meeting, Jackson has competed just twice due to contractual issues between the promotion and his former employer, the UFC. Lawal, meanwhile, has been very active, competing 10 times during the same stretch. The former Strikeforce titleholder has won eight of those 10 bouts, but fell short in his quest for Bellator gold against Phil Davis last May.
The night’s co-main event will feature former bantamweight champion Marcos Galvao moving up a weight class to take on Emmanuel Sanchez at featherweight.
The action kicks off Friday with a live preliminary card stream above at 7 p.m. ET. The night’s main card airs on Spike TV beginning at 9 p.m. ET.
