Aaron Chalmers bounced back with submission victory over Fred Freeman at Bellator London on Saturday night. It even cost some of his fans money after backing their man to get the win via his preferred method of striking.
One such fan was Twitter user @MitchelPayne, who tweeted Chalmers (5-1 MMA) after the event to congratulate him on his victory, but also let him know that his submission victory cost him 60 pounds.
Payne tweeted Chalmers, saying: “Wish you knocked him out! Was not expecting the class ground game, well done man.”
Payne attached a screenshot of his betting accumulator, which correctly picked Charlie Ward, Costello van Steenis, James Gallagher, Melvin Manhoef and Rafael Lovato Jr.’s outright victories. But the one selection that busted his parlay was his bet on Chalmers to win by knockout or TKO.
Chalmers got the win, but did it using his grappling skills. And while the star was elated to claim the victory via triangle choke, it left Payne gutted at missing out on a tidy win for his £1.50 bet.
Chalmers decided to do something about it and, after contacting the fan, sent him £60.00 via PayPal by way of an apology!
