A PROFESSIONAL cage fighter better known for destroying his opponents with the sheer force of his muscle revealed his soft side to pupils at a special school.

Nick Chapman – known to his fans as Headhunter – gave an honest account of his life and how he missed out on the benefits of a good education, to the enthusiastic boys with social, behavioural or emotional difficulties at Prospect School in Havant.

The 35-year-old said: ‘I would disrupt the class and get thrown out, so I learned very little.

‘I switched on to all that I could have achieved at school and what it could have done for me too late, so I ended up having to go back to college as an adult and do it all again.’
