Geordie Shore star Aaron Chalmers is moving on up in the world of mixed martial arts, having compiled a flawless 3-0 record since turning pro previous year.
Bellator 200 will be headlined by a middleweight title match between Rafael Carvalho and longtime contender Gegard Mousasi, while legend Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic will make his Bellator debut against UFC veteran Roy Nelson.
Bellator 200 will take place May 25 at The SSE Arena, Wembley in London.
"A year ago I announced my first fight and a year later and I'm fighting on one of the biggest United Kingdom cards there has ever been", explained Chambers yesterday, joining a main card that includes current 185lbs champion Rafael Carvalho (15-1) facing Gegard Mousasi (43-6-2), and a 2011 rematch between heavyweight fan-favorites Mirko Cro Cop (36-11-2, 1 NC) and Roy Nelson (23-15).
Chalmers was most well-known for his role on "The Geordie Shore" since the show's eighth season beginning in 2014, and also appeared on a second British reality show titled "Ex on the Beach".
A fighter from England's version of "The Jersey Shore" will make his Bellator debut in the United Kingdom. At BAMMA 31 in September, he knocked out Alex Thompson in 30 seconds.
In Griffiths, Chalmers will face his most experienced opponent. But Griffiths is mired in a three-fight skid and has lost four of his past five fights. He made his promotional debut at Bellator 191 in December and suffered a first-round TKO loss to Mohammed Yahya in England.
