Jake Hager’s return to the Bellator cage is set.

As per MMA Junkie, the former WWE and current AEW star will feature at Bellator 250 which takes place October 29 at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut. His opponent will be fellow unbeaten heavyweight Brandon Calton with both fighters having a 2-0 professional record.

Hager, however, has one no contest to his name after his last outing in October last year where an accidental groin strike rendered opponent Anthony Garrett unable to continue. Prior to that, he had won his first two professional fights with arm-triangle choke submission wins over TJ Jones and JW Kiser.
