Former Harry Potter actor Josh Herdman is in the MMA game these days.

Herdman recently won an MMA bout, and he looks absolutely nothing like he did while playing Gregory Goyle in the hit film franchise.

He also revealed in an interview with Vice that he has trained in combat for years before jumping into MMA. This is all a little crazy to think about because in Harry Potter he just played some braindead bully.

Going from a small part in the Harry Potter series to being an MMA fighter is one hell of a leap. Most of those kids never really went on and did much afterwards, minus the stars. He’s now over here cracking skulls. You have to love that kind of transition. A few years ago he was casting fake spells in movies and now he fights in the octagon.

Life is a pretty crazy thing.
