Former WWE wrestler Jake Hager (f/k/a Jack Swagger) is scheduled to face Anthony Garrett at Bellator 231 on October 25, according to MMAFighting.com. Hager is 2-0 in Bellator, and Garrett has a 4-2 MMA record. Bellator 231 will air live on Paramount Network (formerly Spike TV).
Powell’s POV: The main card is scheduled to start at 8CT/9ET. If Bellator plays it right, they will save Hager’s fight for the second hour of the show with the goal of getting Smackdown on Fox viewers to turn to Paramount Network once the WWE show goes off the air.
