Ex-TV star cage fighter in ac­tion

The Chronicle - - News -

FOR­MER Ge­ordie Shore star Aaron Chalmers’s next MMA fight will be in New­cas­tle.

The un­beaten cage fighter will take on an un­con­firmed op­po­nent on Fe­bru­ary 9 at the Metro Ra­dio Arena.

The 31-year-old will fight in the Bel­la­tor card’s co-main event.

The event is head­lined by an­other North East fighter. Sun­der­land light­weight Ryan Scope will face feared cham­pion Pa­tricky ‘Pit­bull’ Freire in a ti­tle fight.

The Brazil­ian has beaten for­mer UFC stars like Josh Thomp­son and Ben­son Hen­der­son.

Chalmers, who has racked up four stop­pages since turn­ing pro, tweeted his joy at fight­ing on home turf.

“It’s of­fi­cial... 9th Feb I’m back ,” he posted.

Nick­named ‘The Joker’, his de­but for Bel­la­tor – seen as the UFC’s strong­est ri­val – ended in a sen­sa­tional first-round sub­mis­sion of Greg Jenk­ins.

He’s pre­vi­ously used the Blay­don Races as his walk­out mu­sic. He shot to fame on the MTV se­ries be­fore quit­ting af­ter four years.
