    MMA fans, sound off!

    Former UFC champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson fights Chael Sonnen next week in the main event of Bellator 192 (Jan. 20) in Inglewood, California. It's the opening fight of the Bellator heavyweight grand prix tournament, which takes place throughout 2018.

    Honestly, I'm amused by Rampage and Chael, but for different reasons. Each time I met Chael, he was always polite, humble, and interactive – so that was at least cool. I just hope Rampage is in shape, because he's going to swing for the fences, while fighting off takedown attempts. The casinos have Rampage as the slight favorite (-155) while Sonnen (+145) is the underdog. If Rampage's cardio holds up, I expect him to win this fight... but it might not be as exciting as MMA fans hope.
