Rampage Jackson and Chael Sonnen will square off at Bellator 192 on January 20 in the first-round of the promotions heavyweight world grand prix.
The former UFC light heavyweight champion, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson (37-12 MMA), has not competed since suffering a unanimous decision loss in his rematch with Muhammed Lawal at Bellator 175 on March 31, 2017.
Prior to the setback, “Rampage” had strung together five-straight wins which included first-round knockout victories over Joey Beltran and Christian M’Pumbu.
Meanwhile, former two-time UFC title challenger Chael Sonnen was most recently seen in action at June’s blockbuster Bellator 180 event, where he earned a unanimous decision victory over bitter rival Wanderlei Silva.
That victory snapped a two-fight losing skid for “The American Gangster”, as Sonnen had previously suffered stoppage losses to former light heavyweight champions Tito Ortiz and Rashad Evans respectively.
