Quinton Jackson's Behavior at Bellator 120 Weigh-Ins Slammed By Commission Member
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 05.19.2014



The shove from Quinton Jackson to Muhammed Lawal at the Bellator 120 weigh-ins have been taken to task by the head of the Mississippi Athletic Commission. Jackson was fined $10,000 and briefly removed from the card following the incident and only got reinstated after apologizing to Jon Lewis, who spoke with MMAjunkie about the incident. Check out the highlights:

On Jackson's actions: "His behavior was the worst I've ever seen in professional sports."

On the fine: "Hitting him for [$10,000] is light, I will say...I believe that he had another offense like that that was a several thousand dollar fine recently."

On Jackson's reaction after the shove: "His reaction to me was, ‘f–k you, motherf–ker, fine me. I said, ‘You're getting it.' And it kept elevating back and forth … and it went to the point where I thought, geez, he's going to take a swing at me."

On nearly pulling Jackson from the card: "He'd be pulled out of any other professional sport. I'm the head commissioner. I didn't want this to happen to me. You can take a football player out of a game and you don't hurt the team that much, per se. There's a replacement."

On not wanting to punish Bellator by yanking Jackson: "This whole thing was set up around this fight, and I'm not going to punish Bellator for that."

On Jackson's attitude: "Quinton is going to have to learn to cool it. Will he ever do it? I don't know."
