Former WWE Star Jack Swagger Signs With Bellator MMA

Former WWE Star Jack Swagger Signs With Bellator MMA”

Former WWE star Jack Swagger will try to reinvent himself with a new career in MMA after signing a contract with Bellator, according to Marc Raimondi of MMA Fighting.

Hager joins the likes of Brock Lesnar, Dave Bautista and Phil "CM Punk" Brooks as pro wrestlers who ventured into mixed martial arts. Swagger said he's wanted to do MMA for a long time and had been negotiating with Bellator since the summer, finalizing terms with them over the weekend. A specific date for the first fight hasn't been set, but we'll keep you updated once it's made official.

Before spending a decade with WWE, Hager was an All-American wrestler at the University of Oklahoma. He would make his debut under the name Jack Swagger in September 2008, appearing for the ECW brand. After an over decade-long run with the company, Hager chose to ask for his release from WWE back in March and was ultimately granted it.

Hager has no amateur MMA experience to speak off and when he makes his Bellator MMA debut in 2018, the wrestling standout will also be making his professional MMA debut. His WWE run included reigns as ECW champion, WWE US champion, world heavyweight champion, as well as becoming the Money In The Bank ladder match victor at WrestleMania XXVI.

There is no word yet when Hager will make his debut and who he will fight at that time. "Very excited about it".
