However, Josh is still acting and is reported to have used the fight to prepare for a new movie he will be starring in called Cagefighter.
Herdman is a black belt in Jui Jitsu and used his skills in the cage to continue his unbeaten record so far.
According to The Daily Star, Josh admits he partied too much following the success of Harry Potter.
He said: “I was a party animal. But I had enough of it so I decided I was going to get fit and I needed something to focus on and martial arts did change my life.
“You need a discipline, you need a tenacity and you need a drive to keep at it. When you start you’re getting hammered, you’re a novice.”
