By Mike Whitman May 16, 2014
Quinton Jackson and Muhammed Lawal will do battle as expected to close Bellator’s inaugural pay-per-view event, as both light heavyweights were cleared to compete at Friday’s Bellator 120 weigh-in.

Jackson checked in at 205.9 pounds, while Lawal tipped the scales at 205.6 ahead of their Season 10 tournament final. Bellator 120 takes place Saturday night at the Landers Center in Southaven, Miss., and will also see Will Brooks (154.2) collide with Michael Chandler (154.9) over the interim lightweight championship in the co-main event.

The pay-per-view bill will additionally feature a light heavyweight showdown between middleweight champion Alexander Shlemenko (201.9) and former UFC king Tito Ortiz (205.5), as well as a heavyweight tournament final pitting ex-champ Alexander Volkov (236.1) against Blagoi Ivanov (249.5). Rounding out the pay-to-watch portion of the card will be the Bellator return of Michael Page (170.5), as the British karateka collides with 10-fight pro Ricky Rainey (170.1).

Prior to the pay-per-view broadcast, the evening’s preliminary card will air live on Spike TV, highlighted by a heavyweight showdown between UFC vet Cheick Kongo (235) and Eric Smith (253.8). The undercard will also see lightweight submission specialist Marcin Held (158) clash with Nate Jolly (158), while onetime featherweight title challenger Shahbulat Shamhalaev (145.1) meets Fabricio de Assis Costa da Silva *(147.9).
