Tensions were high before reality star Aaron Chalmers stepped into the octagon tonight.
Yesterday, he got into a pre-match scuffle with opponent Greg Jenkins at their final weigh in.
Jenkins gave Chalmers a massive push, which resulted in security guards, as well as members of each fighter's entourage, breaking the two apart.
Chalmers told the Birmingham Mail before the weigh-in: "If I didn't think I would win, I wouldn't get in there.
"You could get injured crossing the road. The chances are you're going to get injured - it's a fight. He wants to kill me. I want to kill him."
There was some doubt about whether the former Ex on the Beach star was going to be able to pull it off but he silenced his critics in the first round.
The pair traded blows before Chalmers took Jenkins to the mat, where he managed to get his opponent in an arm lock.
MMA Mad editor, Dale Jordan, told LADbible: "Even though there looked to be a substantial weight difference between the two fighters, Chalmers looked calm and composed on the feet and managed to control position when the ground hit the mat.
"Following a number of strikes on the ground, Chalmers locked up an Americana at two minutes and 9 seconds of the first round and forced the tap. A solid debut for the Geordie Shore star."
The Geordie Shore star received tons of praise from his fans on social media:
Sportingly, Chalmers took to Twitter to thank his opponent after the bout.
The TV star wrote: "Just want to say a massive thank you @Jenkins92Greg took the fight on less than 3 weeks notice and accepted the higher weight. Much respect."Featured Image Credit: Twitter/Genting Arena
