Rampage Jackson and Tyrone Spong go at it on Twitter

World Series of Fighting matchmaker Ali Abdel-Aziz discussed an idea last week about a crossover event with Bellator MMA featuring 10 fighters from each promotion facing off in a pay-per-view event. Sounds all fine and dandy, but the fact is that we will most likely never see that happen. But if we ever did we have a great bout lined up between two hard hitting combatants that seem to not like each other very much. Former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson recently signed with Bellator, knocking out Joey Beltran in his first bout with the promotion. This obviously caught the attention of kickboxing standout Tyrone Spong who attacked Rampage via Twitter, calling him out and saying that the two should fight if the crossover were ever to take place. Quinton, being the guy he is, didn’t stay quiet for long and began to throw verbal punches right back.

Here are the comments made toward each other:

Well that was entertaining! Too bad we’ll probably never see this fight go down. Still, entertaining none the less. Spong is a decorated kick boxer with very minimal MMA experience. He is coming off of a victory at Glory 11, but hasn’t been in a mixed martial arts bout since August. The WSOF is sure to place Spong in a MMA bout soon, but its fair to assume that it will not be against Rampage.

Rampage is looking good in his new position at Bellator. He was originally set to face off against fellow former UFC light heavyweight champ Tito Ortiz in what was scheduled to be Bellator’s first pay-per-view event, but that was derailed due to Ortiz suffering from a neck injury. Instead, Rampage took a fight against Joey Beltran, knocking him unconscious with a beautiful series of punches. Rampage is still awaiting his next fight.

Although this fight would be more than entertaining as Spong is a kickboxing star and Rampage focuses mostly on his standup now-a-days. I, for one, would love to see the two bang it out. Sadly, however, it is most likely never going to happen, but we can always keep our fingers crossed!
