Major League Wrestling star Davey Boy Smith Jr. released a photo on his Instagram earlier today showing off his MMA training with former world heavyweight champion and current Bellator competitor, Jake Hager (aka Jack Swagger). Smith writes:
Great first day back of MMA training and sparring today at Tampa Jiu Jitsu Ybor City! Got that sweat pouring today. The team is back.
Rumors of Smith transitioning to MMA surfaced when he departed from NJPW. He’s still featured heavily on MLW Fusion, and is expected to continue working there for the time being. Check out the photo below.
