Jackson beat up a MW...lets not kid ourselves. He weighed in at 199lbs, and probably didn't gain much going into fight night as you don't cut down an extra 6lbs when cutting weight, you most likely walk around at that weight. Jackson needed a second attempt to make 206 and most likely weighed in near 220lbs come fight night...probably more.
Jackson is protected by Bellator and I can't say you can blame them. They gave him a guy who'd bang in Beltran and Jackson finished him, then give him an overweight MW fighter...and all of a sudden you're tournament finalist???
Bellator have cheapened their LHW division by giving Rampage a spot on their roster! But it's good business sense.
