Jake Hager Addresses Bellator Contract Status, Wishes Andrew Yang Was A Republican

At the Bellator 250 virtual media day, Jake Hager discussed his current contract with the promotion, his love for Donald Trump, and his thoughts on Andrew Yang.

Check out highlights below:

On if this is his last Bellator fight:

This isn’t my last Bellator fight. I originally signed to a six-fight deal with Bellator at the end of 2017. We’ve got plenty more to go and I’m very happy with Bellator. They’re really good to me, giving me everything I need to grow my brand and become a mixed martial artist that they can be proud of.

His thoughts on Trump:

I love Donald Trump simply because he loves America. He loves the American people. He wants my children to have freedom. He wants my children’s children to have freedom. I don’t think you can say that about who he’s running against … I think he’s been doing a hell of a job and will continue to do a hell of a job. America will definitely be better off with another four years of it.

His thoughts on Andrew Yang:

I simply tagged him into that tweet because he had mentioned talking about the independent contract status and how WWE does that to so many of its roster. I just added him in there since they were talking about how great their business was. I really hope there is change. If I was a politician, I would definitely go across the aisle and talk to these people. I have no problem with it. I think Andrew Yang is a young up-and-comer and I know a lot of people back him. I really do hope he can create change but I also wish he was a republican.
