Bellator Fighter, Reality TV Star Aaron Chalmers Trades Jabs with Mike Jackson on Twitter

If Mike Jackson’s days in the Ultimate Fighting Championship are indeed numbered, he won’t have to look far for a potential foe outside the Octagon.

Over the weekend, Bellator MMA talent Aaron Chalmers, a former cast member of MTV’s Geordie Shore — the British equivalent of Jersey Shore — tweeted that he had asked for a matchup with Jackson. Jackson, of course, is coming off a unanimous decision victory over CM Punk at UFC 225 earlier this month. The victorious performance drew the ire of UFC President Dana White, who claimed Jackson was goofing around and said the fighter would not compete in the Las Vegas-based promotion again. Jackson is 1-1 in the Octagon, with a loss to Mickey Gall in his UFC debut.

Chalmers, meanwhile, improved to 4-0 in his MMA career with a first-round submission of Ash Griffiths in his promotional debut at Bellator 200. Chalmers has finished all four of his opponents inside of a round.

Chalmers’ request led to a back-and-forth exchange with Jackson on Twitter:

While Jackson may not get the chance to compete in the UFC again, it’s unclear if he’s been released from his contract with the promotion. However, if he is a free agent, Bellator could have some interest in putting this fight together.
