Place your hand over your heart and say, “Jack Swagger to Bellator”

It was only a month and a half ago that former WWE superstar, Jack Swagger, said he’d be interested in MMA one day. It turns out that one day, is today. Swagger, whose real name is Jake Hager, was an All-American wrestler at Oklahoma. He continues the trend of former collegiate wrestlers making a go at mixed martial arts.

He was a guest on the MMA Hour today and broke the news to Ariel Helwani. Bellator also posted a video of Hager signing his Bellator contract.

Hager also stated that he will fight at heavyweight and will continue to do pro wrestling. He said that his dream matchup would be against Roy Nelson. Good on Hager, because I don’t know anyone that thinks that is a fun time.
