Muhammed Lawal didn’t have it easy setting out to avenge a nearly three-year-old loss to Quinton Jackson. But avenge it, he did.

Lawal (21-6 MMA, 10-4 BMMA) took a unanimous decision from Jackson (37-12 MMA, 4-1 BMMA) in their heavyweight rematch in the Bellator 175 main event on Friday night, evening their series at a win apiece. Jackson had a weight advantage of more than 40 pounds.

Bellator 175 took place at Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Ill. The main card aired on Spike following prelims on MMAjunkie.

In the co-main event, Emmanuel Sanchez (15-3 MMA, 7-2 BMMA) continued taking out major names when he took a decision from former bantamweight champ Marcos Galvao (18-8-1 MMA, 9-5 BMMA).

The card also featured three stoppages: Heavyweight Sergei Kharitonov (24-6 MMA, 1-1 BMMA) chased down Chase Gormley (14-6 MMA, 2-2 BMMA) for a knockout in the first round; Noad Lahat (11-2 MMA, 2-0 BMMA) choked out Lloyd Carter (10-9 MMA, 0-2 BMMA); and Steven Kozola (8-0 MMA, 3-0 BMMA) needed just 28 seconds to take out Jake Roberts (7-2 MMA, 1-2 BMMA).

Check out the highlights from the main card in the video above.
