Bellator only cares about Rampage Jackson if he’s really serious about the fights


Scott Coker of Bellator has never been a guy to put himself forward and at the center like some other fight promoters, so it’s no surprise that we haven’t heard too much about him in the past few weeks so let everyone assess the effects and fallout of the current Coronavirus Pandemic. But with the news that Bellator has reached an agreement to air classic fights on CBS and will come back with new events in June, Coker has come to give us various promotional updates.

As usual, Coker played things close to the chest. The former Strikeforce chief is the king of saying “maybe” to almost every question he receives, and that’s what he answered when we were asked if we would see Quinton “Rampage” Jackson again. back in the Bellator cage. The last time Jackson fought for them, he ran for his heavyweight fight against Fedor Emelianenko in Japan, who opposed the 265-pound limit. After several difficult Emelianenko combos in the first, “Rampage” fell to the canvas and typed in a Sapp-esque nod to his opponent.

“Crawling, he did his best,” Coker told MMA Junkie. “He was touched and I think he just felt the power and he said,” There is going to be another day for me and it will not be tonight. “Fedor is who he is. Even though Fedor is in the fourth quarter of his career and that is the two-minute warning, the guy is still dangerous. Every day it hits you, it goes out. “
