Jake Hager knows all about fighting in a cage.
When he's not on AEW Dynamite as part of The Inner Circle, Hager has been found competing inside the Bellator MMA cage. Hager sports a record of 3-0 (1) and is coming off a split decision victory Brandon Calton at Bellator 205.
Speaking to Wrestle Buddies, Hager commented on when he could return to MMA.
"It's one of those things where one hand helps the other. Right now, Bellator has been great, and understand what a big storyline I'm involved with in AEW and they've always been great working with me to have my wrestling career prosper. They know that if I'm a bigger star then they're a bigger star. I'm very interested in getting back in [the cage]. Of course, I never stopped training and I think they're going to be having another Bellator Heavyweight Grand Prix. Maybe I can toss my name in the hat for that. Since I never stopped training, I'm perfect for Blood & Guts right now. Have any of those guys been locked in a cage with another professional? Nah," he said.
Hager will fight alongside The Inner Circle on Wednesday's Dynamite at Blood & Guts against The Pinnacle.
Fightful will have live coverage of AEW Dynamite beginning at 8 p.m. ET.
