Jake Hager not only wrestles for AEW, but also competes for Bellator MMA.
In fact, Hager fights at Bellator 250 this Thursday. According to Hager, AEW World Heavyweight Champion Jon Moxley is a natural fit to compete in MMA.
This is something that he talked about while doing an interview with MMANews.com.
“I know after wrestling him for that [AEW] championship, for 43 minutes in front of no audience, in the Florida heat, that man has what it takes to go five rounds,” said Hager. “He’s trained just a little bit and I think he’s a natural for (MMA). He definitely has that I don’t care attitude, and I’m ready to fight.”
“I worked myself up to a point where I think ‘I really hate this guy and I really want to go out there and hurt him.’ So, I guess it’s similar in that way to a movie. You got to bring the energy from within. And then that match, add that nice Florida humidity, and I broke a nice little sweat. I got into a groove, just kind of free flowing and wrestling. And we beat the absolute hell out of each other and it was quite fun.”
