A polite fight? Over the last few years, wrestling and mixed martial arts have come together in a way that works surprisingly well. There is definitely a connection between the two worlds, with wrestling being a part of mixed martial arts and a mixture of different styles coming together in most. Several wrestlers have tried their hand at mixed martial arts and now we might have an unlikely candidate.
According to F4WOnline.com, Jack Gallagher has been in talks to sign with Bellator MMA as a mixed martial artist. No deal has been made though there is interest on both sides. There is no word on how such a contract would interfere with Gallagher’s WWE deal. Gallagher has some experience in mixed martial arts, having participated in two amateur fights with a 2-0 record.
This isn’t standard MMA. Check out Gallagher in action on 205 Live:
Opinion: I mean, sure why not. Gallagher clearly has some skills in this area and maybe he could do something in mixed martial arts. His time in WWE has been hit and miss so far, but if he wants to do something like this and can get the contract situations figured out, go for it. Maybe he can even do something more successful in MMA than he has in wrestling, though he’s certainly not bad there either.
Would Gallagher be successful as a fighter? Will he ever break through in WWE? Let us know in the comments below.
