Chalmers quit the reality TV show to go professional in the sport, and faces his toughest test so far in the cage.

SunSport previously reported how the 30-year-old Toon sensation was almost lost for words when he learned he would be joining that illustrious list.

Chalmers said: “I was sitting round my girlfriend’s house and my agent called and said ‘you are not going to believe it’.

“I knew there were talks going on but I still didn’t expect him to say ‘you are fighting on the Bellator London show’.

“My heart sank with nerves because it is quite a big show – well it’s actually a f****** huge show.

“I am buzzing. Inside a year everything has just gone from strength to strength. And now I am on one of the biggest shows in the world.

“If someone said to me a year ago that I would be on the same card as Mirko Cro Cop, Roy Nelson and Michael Venom Page I would have laughed at them and said ‘f*** off’.

“A year later I am on it and it seems surreal. I am going to be sitting in a press conference with Mirko f****** Cro Cop, who I have watched for years.”
