Jake Hager talks latest Bellator win, post-fight interview | Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show
Video Channel: ESPN MMA
Jake Hager says his post fight interview after defeating TJ Jones at Bellator 221 was straight from his heart. Hager goes on to explain that he meant no disrespect to Jones by holding on to the chokehold longer than expected, and that he was told by referee Mike Beltran before the fight that Beltran would get him off if he had him down, so he was only doing what he was told. Hager tells Ariel Helwani that he's excited to keep "jumping levels" as he continues to grow in MMA and that Bellator is a perfect place for him to do so.
