Jake Hager to fight again at Bellator 221 in May

Jake Hager, the artist formerly known as Jack Swagger, will be returning inside the cage for a second MMA bout under Bellator.

Ariel Helwani of ESPN reported that the former World Heavyweight champion will be part of the Bellator 221 event on May 11. No opponent has been named as of yet. This will be Hager’s second professional MMA fight after he beat J.W. Kiser last month at The Forum in Inglewood, California. Hager made quick work of his opponent, submitting him in the first round.

Hager has stated that he would like to use the name Jack Swagger for his second fight and was in the process of putting a trademark on the name.

Bellator 221 will take place at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois, a place where he wrestled numerous times before for WWE.
