Jake Hager will have some of his closest friends in his corner when he steps back into the Bellator cage on Friday night.
Hager is 2-0 as an MMA fighter. He made his All Elite Wrestling debut at AEW Dynamite earlier this month in Washington, DC.
Hager was not at AEW Dynamite this week because he needed the time off to train for his fight. The ESPN story notes that his Inner Circle teammates may get into the cage with Hager for a photo op after the fight.
The main card, headlined by Frank Mir vs. Roy Nelson, will air at 9:00 pm eastern.
