This announcement does come as a small surprise just with the backdrop of Chalmers seemingly navigating taking at least one more MMA bout.
The Joker not only competed for Bellator MMA but was also on the BAMMA circuit as well. Chalmers made his first MMA foray in May 2017. He put away Greg Jenkins with a first-round Americana at BAMMA 29.
Aaron Chalmers would put together a four-fight winning streak to kick things off. He won three consecutive bouts in BAMMA and made a successful Bellator debut through that stretch. All four of those wins came in the first round.
His other wins under the BAMMA banner saw him finish both opponents with strikes with each contest being under a minute. Alex Thompson was halted by Aaron Chalmers at BAMMA 31. Chalmers also ran through Karl Donaldson at BAMMA 33.

Chalmers posted up a .500 record under the Bellator banner overall. The pair of wins he secured in Bellator MMA came by way of choke-based submissions.
Aaron Chalmers bested Ashley Griffiths via first-round guillotine choke at Bellator 200 and finished Fred Freeman with a triangle choke in round 2 of their Bellator 223 collision.
The two pro-MMA defeats Chalmers took came to Corey Browning via first-round heel hook at Bellator Newcastle and to Austin Clem via unanimous decision at Bellator 240.
The bout with Clem is the last time Chalmers has stepped into the cage and this transpired last February.
