Jake Hager is slated to compete in his next pro-MMA fight.
The AEW star will be fighting on the preliminary portion of tonight’s Bellator 250 card from the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut. The main card will air on CBS Sports Network at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT while the prelims will air on DAZN and Bellator’s YouTube channel at 5:30 p.m. ET
Hager will fight fellow heavyweight Brandon Caltonat. Up to this point, all of Hager’s fights in Bellator have aired on the main card. The promotion also announced the fight just a week in advance, which is different from what they’ve done in the past.
Hager hasn’t competed inside the cage in a year as his previous outing was at Bellator 231. This is where his fight ended in a no contest after he kneed opponent Anthony Garrett in the groin multiple times. This snapped his undefeated streak.
