According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE 205 Live star Jack Gallagher has drawn the interest of Bellator for a future potential fight. The MMA promotion has worked with previously wrestling talent in the past such as Bobby Lashley, and is the current stomping grounds for Jake Hager (Jack Swagger), who recently improved to a 2-0 record. Reports state that no deal has been cut between the two companies at this time.
Gallagher is trained in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and has notched two victories via submission in amateur MMA contests. Prior to the 2016 Cruiserweight Classic he spoke with ESPN where he spoke about the shared connection between pro-wrestling and mixed-martial arts.
If you don’t think MMA is influenced by pro wrestling, you’ve got your head in the sand, and definitely vice-versa.
