Aaron Chalmers: Loses in Newcastle

Geordie Shore star Aaron Chalmers suffers first MMA defeat in his home town at Bellator Newcastle
Aaron Chalmers was handed his first loss as a professional mixed martial artist on Saturday night, when he took on the American underdog Corey Browning at Bellator Newcastle.
Chalmers came into the bout with a 4-0 record, all by the way of first-round stoppage, but was left stunned on his Newcastle homecoming.
Browning, who defeated Baby Slice in a big upset in his last bout, taking his record to 4-2, beat Chalmers by heel hook, just 20 seconds into the 3rd round.
The first round went in favour of Chalmers as a powerful left hook from ‘Joker’ Chalmers dropped browning to the mat.
But as the 31-year-old Brit walked away, seemingly believing he was victorious, Browning got back to his feet and managed to see out the opener.
The second round, however, had Browning taking Chalmers to the ground where a vicious ground and pound could have had the fight stopped.
The third round again was taken to the ground where Browning subsequently got the finish, bringing Chalmers’ winning run to an end.
In an interview with the Daily Mirror earlier in the week, Chalmers said:
“There are always going to be losses along the way.
“But I think the comeback is always better than the fall back, so it’s how you deal with the loss and come back from it.”
Unfortunately for the Geordie, he now has the opportunity to put these words into practice, where his next challenge will be his most important one yet.
