Reality stars are typically all talk and no action. You can't say that about the UK's Aaron Chalmers.
Chalmers, a cast member of The Geordie Shore, is making waves inside the cage. He got his second-straight first-round finish with a big left-hook, right-hand combo that flattened his opponent.

Aaron Chalmers vs. CM Punk. Make it happen.2017-9-15 20:40:43
At BAMMA 31 in London, Chalmers stepped inside the cage for the second time as a pro and squared off against Alex Thompson. It was Thompson's pro debut following a 2-4 amateur record.

Highlight reel knockout by @mtvgeordieshore's @AaronCGShore. Nice work. https://t.co/zHPHHZO5id2017-9-15 20:48:34
At the prefight press conference, Chalmers told Thompson that he was going to smash his eyeballs, but Chalmers added an extra expletive to get his point across to his opponent (h/t Mirror).
He did just that. Chalmers knocked him out cold in about 30 seconds of work.
Time will tell just how high the ceiling is for the Newcastle native, but if he keeps putting on these kinds of performances, he'll catch the attention of larger organizations. Until then, bask in his knockout glory.
