Bellator MMA has a potential emerging Heavyweight Superstar on their roster.
Former WWE Superstar Jack Swagger, fighting under his real name of Jake Hager, won his professional MMA debut on Saturday night at the Bellator 214 event at The Forum in Inglewood, California.
Hager, who used his “We The People” persona to the maximum throughout the evening, defeated J.W. Kiser in the first round via arm-triangle choke submission at the 2:09 mark.
Hager now has a 1-0 professional MMA record and will continue fighting his way through the Heavyweight ranks of Bellator MMA.
