Jack Swagger to make MMA debut for Bellator next month

 
 

During today’s Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show on ESPN, former World Heavyweight champion Jack Swagger revealed that he will be making his Bellator debut next month.

Swagger, who now goes by his real name Jake Hager, said he will be fighting JW Kiser on the January 26 show from The Forum in Inglewood, California. Kiser is a 39-year-old who’s relatively new to professional MMA and holds a 1-1 record. He last fought two days ago for KC Fighting Alliance in Independence, Missouri where he defeated Michael Edwards who was making his MMA debut.

Hager signed with Bellator in November 2017 and is training at the Ybor City Jiu-Jitsu Club in Tampa, Florida. This will be his first professional MMA fight.
