Nothing but respect for MMA heavyweight TJ Jones.
Also respect to Bellator for not really trying to hide the fact they want Jack Swagger to win his second MMA fight. A 29 year-old out of Kansas, Jones is nicknamed ‘Tombstone’ and currently boasts a 1-1 record in MMA.
Back in January, on Royal Rumble weekend, Swagger won his MMA debut with a quick first round submission over 40-year-old J.W. Kiser. Swagger even said Vince McMahon offered him some advice before the fight.
This weekend Swagger steps into the cage again and today (May 9) he had his first face-off with Jones.
If Big E approves, how can anyone judge?
And the face-off.
Everything about this faceoff is incredible. It makes it look like Jack Swagger is fighting a dude they found loitering outside a shopping mall 20 minutes before the press conference. pic.twitter.com/imc22ot3tN— Ben Fowlkes (@benfowlkesMMA) May 9, 2019
Swagger versus Jones goes down this Saturday night at Bellator 221 from the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois.
