Former WWE Superstar Scores Win in MMA Debut

Jake Hager made his professional MMA debut over the weekend on the Bellator 214 card. You may remember him as former WWE Superstar Jack Swagger. And he remembers it too, busting out the "We The People" pose and call after scoring his big win. Hager, was a very accomplished collegiate wrestler before going to WWE, so seeing him in MMA now, is not a huge surprise. He uses his grapping to take control early, eventually submitting his opponent. Way to go, Jake! 

Also noteworthy from Saturday night's card was Ryan Bader's huge win over legend Fedor Emilianenko in just 35 seconds. Bader clips Fedor with a left right over his eye and then pounced to finish him off. Bader won the Heavyweight title with the win, and is also currently Bellator's Light Heavyweight Champion.
