Jack Swagger is making the jump from the squared circle to the octagon, as the former World Heavyweight Champion announced he'll be fighting for Bellator MMA next year.

Before entering professional wrestling, Hager was a standout amateur wrestler at the University of Oklahoma. "I'm definitely like that".

Swagger made the announcement today 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.

Swagger has signed a six fight deal with Bellator, and is very happy with the arrangement.

Swagger's reign on top was short-lived, and his remaining years on WWE consisted of many stop-start storylines which failed to fully connect with the audience. He became an All-American in 2006 after finishing seventh in the NCAA tournament in the heavyweight division. He is the third WWE Superstar to leave the organization for MMA in recent years, joining Brock Lesnar and CM Punk.

Amusing enough, Hager's bracket in wrestling that year also featured future UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez, former Bellator champion Cole Konrad as well as current American Top Team wrestling coach Steve Mocco. "I like what Bellator are doing right now and the roster is filling up and it's not just top heavy, the guys in the middle of the rankings are very competitive and risky".
