Jake Hager’s MMA Fight Ends In No Contest, Batista Hangs With Inner Circle

Batista SmackDown 1000

AEW star Jake Hager was back in action for his latest pro-MMA fight Friday night. He had his latest fight booked under the banner of the Bellator MMA promotion, where he took on Anthony Garrett in a heavyweight showdown.

The fight was ruled a no contest after As seen in the fight, Hager didn’t win but rather went to a no contest after Hager dropped Garrett with a knee strike to the groin. This led to doctors at cage-side to rule that Garrett could not return to fighting within a five minute rest period.

It was an unsatisfying finish (especially for Garrett!), but you can probably see how this could be incorporated into AEW storylines. Hager remains undefeated in MMA fighting and he’s demonstrated that he’s willing to fight dirty if necessary.
