Former WWE champ Jake Hager, aka Jack Swagger, to return to cage at Bellator 231 – The Sun

FORMER WWE Champion Jake Hager, also known as Jack Swagger, will attempt to continue his undefeated MMA streak at Bellator 231.

The 37-year-old took his record to 2-0 in May when he controversially defeated T.J. Jones in Chicago.

Now he will return to the cage on October 25 at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut.

Bellator are yet to officially confirm the “Real American’s” inclusion on the main card.

However, several outlets are reporting he will be facing Anthony Garrett (4-2-0) in a heavyweight bout.

The grappler will be making his Bellator debut and has one three out of his last four fights in the Shamrock FC promotion.

Hager has not faced the highest level of competition since swapping the squared-circle for the cage.

He earned first-round finishes of JW Kiser and T.J. Jones in his first two fights.

But Hager's victory was marred as he kept the choke on after Jones had tapped last time out as the crowd voiced their displeasure with a chorus of boos.

Referee Mike Beltran kept trying to separate the two fighters until eventually Hager rolled off – but it did little to endear himself those in attendance.
