Jake Hager to Fight Beef Plant Worker at Bellator 221

Former WWE Superstar Jake Hager (a.k.a. Jack Swagger) has his second professional MMA fight at Bellator 221 on Saturday, and apparently, they’ve decided to feed him another tomato can.

The 37-year-old will face 29-year-old beef plant worker TJ Jones. Jones has a record of 1-1 and looks like he’s been eating a bit too much of the product at work.

When asked by MMA Junkie what will happen if he doesn’t get the outcome he desires, Jones said “If I lose, I just go back to the beef plant.”

Hager won his first fight against J.W. Kiser via a first-round arm triangle submission at Bellator 214.

The main event of Bellator 221 is Michael Chandler defending his Lightweight World Title against rival Patricio Pitbull. The main card begins at 9:00 PM ET and is available to watch on DAZN.
