James Haskell: MMA Fighter

When, on James Haskell's retirement in May, I wished him well in whatever came next in his career, I was probably thinking more along the lines of rugby punditry.

I'm pretty sure that I wasn't thinking that he might become a professional mixed martial arts fighter.

And yet news today that Haskell, never one to shun the limelight, has signed a deal with Bellator MMA and is expected to make his debut as a heavyweight next year.

It's a brave move, for sure, and will be nothing if not entertaining.

Good luck Hask, you might need it!
