4. James Haskell – MMA
After hanging up hos boots, Haskell signed to mixed martial arts promotion Bellator MMA as part of its Heavyweight division. Haskell had previously done analysis and commentary work for English promotions such as BAMMA and CFF.
In February 2020, it was announced that Haskell would make his professional mixed martial arts debut on 16 May 2020 at Wembley’s SSE Arena. The event was ultimately postponed due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
