He just announced on the MMA Hour that he'll debut next year for Bellator at heavyweight. He was a pretty legit amateur wrestler, should be interesting to see how he does

Really wet for this. I reckon he will draw reasonably well.

Is Zeb Coulter going to be in his corner..? Ha..

Swagger from Okla, but lives in Fl.. Most likely around Tampa/Clearwater area..

He wrestled at 285 in college. Will likely be in the 250-260 range in MMA. Big guy. 35 years old, though.

Apparently he beat Cain Velasquez twice in amatuer wrestling.

He couldn’t draw in wrestling what gives you the idea he will in MMA?

What gym is he part of? He has a somewhat hulking herky jerky way of moving almost like Jardine, should be interesting to see what kind of striking he's got by then.

Because wrestling fans will defon tune into bellator to watch him. They will get more viewers than an average bellator. Not the word 'reasonably' before well. Of course Won't get punk attention but will do decent viewers.

Unlike lame ass CM Punk, this guy has some legit athletic credentials. Looking forward to seeing what he can do.

His wife can be a ring girl. Her bone tape was pretty sweet.
