    When a wand is not enough, fists can do: Harry Potter actor Josh Herdman who played Gregory Goyle, one of Draco Malfoy's "bodyguards," debuted in mixed martial arts.

    In contrast with his plumpy and clumsy character, the 28-year-old Herdman proved to be a strong, robust and quite skillful fighter. In his first bout he defeated Pole Janusz Walachowski.

    Herdman revealed he had practiced Jiu jitsu, a traditional Japanese martial art, for five years. He said he equally loved both acting and fighting.
