Jake Hager (aka Jack Swagger) will make his MMA debut at the end of the month for Bellator. When he does, R-Truth will be there to play him to the ring. MMA journalist James Lynch recently spoke to Hager, who revealed that R-Truth will be performing at the show and several WWE Superstars will be in attendance.
Hager will be fighting at heavyweight and will take on J.W. Kiser in his MMA debut at Bellator 214. His fight will be on the undercard for Ryan Bader vs Fedor Emelianenko.
The former WWE World Heavyweight Champion signed a deal with Bellator in 2017. He commented on training for his MMA debut in an interview with Wrestling Inc this summer.
“Training is coming along very well,” he said. “It’s amazing, and has been incredibly tough with the transitions that I have gone through from where I was in WWE. It has actually taken off a lot of the aches and pains. My body feels amazing; I am stronger and more flexible than ever. I am in the best shape of my life. That is pretty impressive at 36 years old, so it is going good.”
