As for Hager’s opponent, T.J. “Tombstone” Jones trained while working at a beef plant. It sounds like his strategy will be to use his feet and avoid the cage fence. Jones plans to use his purse money to have a fun summer for his six kids. And perhaps he can get a Tombstone pizza sponsorship out of it.

The televised main card for Bellator 221 is scheduled as follows:

  • Michael Chandler vs. Patricio Freire
  • Douglas Lima vs. Michael Page
  • A.J. McKee vs. Pat Curran
  • Jake Hager vs. T.J. Jones
  • Tywan Claxton vs. James Bennett

The show begins at 9 pm ET on DAZN. With Hager on second, his fight will probably go on around 9:30pm ET. You may want to tune in earlier in case the first bout is a quick one.

Since Hager’s last fight, he has been busy with a biographic comic book, cryotherapy, and squirrel training.

He is also taking phone calls from President Donald Trump.

If you are looking for some Swaggie swag, Hager has t-shirts for sale at Pro Wrestling Tees.
