All Elite Wrestling's Jake Hager faced the most adversity he's seen in the MMA cage thus far, but it was his own doing.
Hager's fight was ruled a no contest midway through the first round at Bellator 231 due to fouls that rendered Anthony Garrett unable to continue. The former Jack Swagger would fail to earn a victory for the first time in his young MMA career.
Early into the fight, Hager worked the clinch instead of immediately landing a takedown. He busted up his opponent in the clinch before connecting his knee to the groin of Garrett multiple times. The second of which dropped Garrett in the cage. It became apparent that Garrett wouldn't be getting up.
Despite the fouls, Hager remains undefeated in his three professional MMA fights.
Hager is also regularly featured on All Elite Wrestling, and was joined at the event by his Inner Circle stable mates Santana, Ortiz and Sammy Guevara.
