A heavyweight division attraction has been added to Bellator 250 as Jake Hager is in action against Brandon Calton.
MMA Junkie reported the news. Hager (2-0-0-1NC) has spent his entire professional MMA career in Bellator, picking up wins over JW Kiser and TJ Jones. Hager is going to be fighting for the first time in just over a year, as his last bout was a no contest against Anthony Garrett at Bellator 231. Hager has fought three times as a professional MMA fighter and none of those bouts went past the opening round.
Calton (2-0-0) is undefeated thus far in his professional MMA career, having defeated Conway Beaudry and Larry Greene. Calton also went undefeated as an amateur MMA fighter with three of those five wins coming in the Caged Kombat Fighting Championship organization. Calton has picked up the aforementioned two wins in his pro career, but his opponents' combined records were 2-5-0.
Bellator 250 takes place on Thursday, October 29 from the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut with Douglas Lima and Gegard Mousasi headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which airs live on the CBS Sports Network.
