Jack Swagger (Jake Hager) Wins Second MMA Fight With Controversy

Former WWE star Jack Swagger, now fighting under his real name Jake Hager, defeated T.J. Jones at the Bellator 221 event to become 2-0 in his MMA fighting career.

Hager won the fight with a first-round arm triangle submission. However, there was controversy when Hager did not let go of the submission right away when the fight was stopped.

While being booed by the crowd, Hager addressed the controversy:

“I meant no disrespect, but you’re going to have to make me stop. I thought the referee was him.”
