Ex-Geordie Shore star Aaron Chalmers has signed a lucrative MMA contract with Bellator.
The reality TV personality debuted under the BAMMA banner in May 2017, but made his Bellator debut this year and has now joined the promotion on a long-term agreement.
Chalmers is 4-0 in the early stages of his career, with four first-round finishes, but became embroiled in a contract dispute that stalled his progression.
At 31 he is no spring chicken and will be looking to gain momentum with this new deal, which MMA Junkie report to be a two-year, six-fight agreement.
“It’s a dream come true [to sign the deal],” Chalmers told Ultimate Boxxer.
“It was a long-winded process with BAMMA – it was haunting my career and I didn’t know why.
