Rampage and King Mo still want to fight each other – can the UFC make it happen?

The Fight Nerd January 10, 2012 1

“King Mo” has stood the test against almost every opponent thrown at him in Strikeforce, but his time with Scott Coker’s promotion may be at an end soon thanks to Zuffa’s acquisition of the company. At last week’s post-fight press conference, Mo was asked abut the former UFC light-heavyweight champion, Quinton Jackson, and said, “If he wants to come to Strikeforce and get beat, he can… to me, he needs to stick to acting and doing movies… he ain’t got it no more… we all know the truth. He’s a subpar actor. He should be on the b-team, not the A-team.”

On Inside MMA this past Monday, Jackson responded to the comments, saying that moving to Strikeforce would be a “step down” for him, and that he was not impressed by Mo’s victory over “some guy.” He added, “That guy has never fought anybody close to the top caliber of fighters that I have fought.” Perhaps the time will come in 2012 where King Mo is called up the UFC, and these two can settle their ongoing feud once and for all.
