AEW star Jake Hager is stepping back into the cage for Bellator MMA at this month’s Bellator 250. MMAjunkie reports that Hager will compete against fellow undefeated heavyweight Brandon Calton at the event, which takes place on October 29th in Uncasville, Connecticut.

The main card airs on CBS Sports Network while the preliminary fights — including Hager vs. Calton — are on CBSSports.com. Hager’s last MMA fight was in September of 2019 against Anthony Garrett, a bout that was ruled a no-context after Hager hit Garrett twice with knees to the groin. Hager is 2-0 in Bellator.

The full lineup for the event is:

* Bellator middleweight title fight: Gegard Mousasi vs. Douglas Lima
* Sabah Homasi vs. Bobby Voelker
* Cody Law vs. Orlando Ortega
* Johnny Eblen vs. Taylor Johnson
* Nick Newell vs. Zach Zane
* Brandon Carlton vs. Jake Hager
