Former England rugby union international James Haskell will make his professional mixed martial arts debut on 16 May.

Haskell called time on his 17-year rugby career in May 2019 before signing with American MMA promoter Bellator three months later.

The former Wasps and Northampton flanker, who won 77 caps for England, will be on Bellator's London card in a heavyweight bout against an unnamed opponent held at the SSE Arena, Wembley.

Haskell will fight on the card headlined by James Gallagher and Cal Ellenor in a bantamweight contest which has been rescheduled for the third time.
