I think my career will be a lot longer than most people imagine, in mixed martial arts,” Swagger — aka Jake Hager — told Helwani. “I have nothing to prove. I’m doing this for me and my family. I know I belong and you will see that I do when I step in the cage.”

Bellator 214 will be headlined by MMA legend Fedor Emelianenko and Bellator light heavyweight champion Ryan Bader. The undercard also includes Gegard Mousasi who defends his Bellator  Middleweight title against  Rafael Lovato Jr.

Hager will join the elite list of professional wrestlers to have made the transition to MMA, few of the notable names are Brock Lesnar, Bobby Lashley, and CM Punk.
