Former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Jack Swagger's (Jake Hager) MMA debut has been confirmed for the Bellator 214 event on January 26 from The Forum in Inglewood, California.
Swagger will face JW Kiser in his MMA debut. Kiser reportedly has a record of 1 win and 1 loss but some MMA standings websites have him listed at 0-1. Swagger, who was officially released from WWE in March 2017, later announced that November that he planned on getting into MMA.
His fight will take place on the Bellator 214 main card, which airs on Paramount. That card will be headlined by Fedor Emelianenko vs. Ryan Bader for the vacant Heavyweight Title.
