Former WWE star Jack Swagger is getting into the MMA world. He announced he’ll be fighting for Bellator in 2018 as a heavyweight.

Swagger made the announcement yesterday on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani and said he’s excited because stepping into the cage for mixed martial arts is something he’s always wanted to do.

“We have been working and talking with them [Bellator] through the summer, we started negotiations and whatnot, and it literally got finalized this weekend,” Jack explained.

The wrestler says he’s been MMA/boxing training for eight months and is under contract for six fights. A specific date for the first fight hasn’t been set, but we’ll keep you updated once it’s made official.
