Jake Hager is better known to WWE fans as Jack Swagger. Jake is set to face John Kisner, who has a record of 1-1-0 in MMA. The fight is for Bellator and will be televised on Paramount. Hager spoke to SportBible about being ready to go for this event:
“But this isn’t only amateur wrestling,” he said. “It’s mixed martial arts. There are many disciplines I need to be good at.” They include jiu-jitsu, kickboxing and boxing.
“But I’m ready,” he said.
“One of the best pieces of advice I ever got in professional wrestling was use the exposure from cable’s number one rated television show to transition and move on to what you want to go into next.”
