Aaron Chalmers, best known for starring in Geordie Shore aka the UK version of Jersey Shore, has acquired his first professional MMA win today after securing a first round finish at #Bamma29.
#AaronChalmers was scrutinized for achieving a high-ranking fight in a well known promotion despite having never competed in a single MMA fight — amateur or professional, something many people felt was because of his #GeordieShore reality TV fame. That scrutiny further increased when he weighed in a whole 14 pounds over the contracted limit. Except, technically, he didn't miss weight. Apparently, the weigh-in limit was adjusted shortly before the official weigh-in, putting the fight at the welterweight limit, thus qualifying Chalmers to be considered on weight.
Chalmers silenced his critics when he defeated Greg Jenkins via an americana at 2:09 of round 1.
