Bellator MMA star Aaron Chalmers has decided to issue a challenge to WWE Champion Daniel Bryan as he gears up for his first fight in the United States next year.
Chalmers is a former reality TV star with more than 800,000 followers on social media, and he’s known for being one of the more controversial figures in the world of mixed martial arts due to his background. Bryan, on the other hand, is a known lover of MMA, but hasn’t seemed to showcase any legitimate interest in the past of getting into the cage.
Even with that being the case Aaron has made no secret of the fact that he’d like to throw down with Bryan, with this ‘challenge’ coming not long after he continued to plead his case for a fight against CM Punk.
Arguably the most interesting thing about this is the fact that Chalmers is also a big fan of the WWE, and the company clearly know who he is as they’ve interacted with him over Twitter in the past.
While that isn’t exactly a sign that this is going to happen it’s definitely an important part of the story, as Chalmers continues to prove why giving yourself a personality is so key both in professional wrestling and MMA.
Bryan is currently focused on making history of his own after capturing the WWE Championship from AJ Styles, but perhaps this is something that he’d entertain somewhere down the road. After all, the saying we all know is ‘never say never’.
