Geordie Shore star turned MMA prospect Aaron “The Joker” Chalmers is on the brink of taking the next step in his burgeoning MMA career. Talks are underway between Bellator and BAMMA with the aim of adding Chalmers to the Bellator 200 card set to take place in London on May 27th.
Backstage at last night’s BAMMA 34 event in London, Bellator CEO Scott Coker confirmed to MMANYTT that discussions were taking place.
“You know what, I think my guys are talking to David [Green] and so we will see,” Coker said.
“I don’t know at what level they’re talking, but you know, if it’s something David would let him fight or if he’s interested in fighting, you know he might be busy with David. Who knows.”
Chalmers hasn’t yet commented on the situation but has been using Twitter to tease that he has some big news coming for the past few weeks.
The undefeated Geordie is well aware of his critics in the MMA world and posted the following message on Twitter earlier today.
All signs point toward Chalmers taking a big step forward in his MMA career. Success in the Bellator cage would certainly elevate him to the next level and go some way toward silencing some of the unfair criticism he has received.
