Former Geordie Shore star Aaron Chalmers has come a long way in the last year.
Just over 12 months ago he was a reality TV star with dreams of a professional MMA career. Today, holding a perfect 3-0 professional record, he announced he will be featured on the main card at Bellator 200 in London.
Undefeated in 3 fights under the BAMMA banner, Chalmers will face Ashley Griffiths in a catchweight bout, believed to be at 163lbs.
Griffiths has a 4-5 record (according to Sherdog) and will be looking to snap a 3 fight losing streak when he meets Chalmers in London on May 25th. His last appearance was at Bellator 191 last December where he picked up a first round KO loss to Mohammad Yahya. Griffiths has spent the majority of his career fighting at 155lbs with his loss to Yahya his like venture up to welterweight.
