Former mixed martial arts world champions and bitter rivals Quinton Jackson and Wanderlei Silva squared off for a forth time tonight at Bellator 206 in San Jose.
Wanderlei had won the pairs first two meetings, which took place under the now defunct PRIDE FC banner, ending both of those fights with some brutal knees in the clinch.
When the fighters eventually took their talents to the UFC, Quinton Jackson was able to get a dose of revenge on the Brazilian standout earning a devastating one-punch first-round knockout victory at UFC 92.
Tonight Quinton “Rampage” Jackson was able to even the score with his Brazilian rival, earning a second-round TKO victory after a wild back and forth affair.
Here is how the pros reacted to tonight’s sensational scrap between mixed martial arts legends Wanderlei Silva and Quinton Jackson.
