Ex-WWE wrestler ‘Gentleman’ Jack Gallagher to fight at Hexagone MMA 8

Former WWE wrestler ‘Gentleman’ Jack Gallagher will be competing in his second MMA bout under the name of Jack Claffey at HEXAGONE MMA 8, as announced in the release of the fight card last week. 


The Englishman will be facing French local, Yassin Chtatou, at Béziers Arena on 3 June, looking to recover from the loss he incurred in his pro MMA debut last year.


Claffey performed on WWE between 2016 and 2020 with the NXT and 205 Live brands. Following a 10-year career on the independent professional wrestling circuit, he debuted with WWE for the tournament Cruiserweight Classic in 2016 to go on to sign with the promotion.


On May 6, 2022, 33-year-old Mancunian took his first bare-knuckle boxing fight with BKFC to score a KO victory. He also has a 2–0 record at amateur level in MMA.
