Harry Potter actor, Josh Herdman, who played the character of Draco Malfoy's sidekick Gregory Goyle in all eight of the Harry Potter films, has undergone a dramatic transformation in his pursuit to become a cage fighter.

The actor-turned-fighter made his debut last week in England  with a unanimous victory over Polish  fighter, Janusz Walachowski.

The actor, who is now barely identifiable because of his tattoos, bare head, and a carved body, told in the aftermath of his win, 'I have been training traditional Japanese jujitsu for nearly five years and I hold a shodan black belt.'

Those who want to see him on the screens once again should hold their horses as he said, 'I haven't fallen out of love with it. I still have an agent and still go for auditions. It's just a little bit like playing the lottery for a living. I don't see it so much as a career change; I am passionate about both acting and fighting.'
