Will it be Page’s eighth victory in a row?
MVP’s record now consists of seven wins and no losses. The latest bout happened in October 2014 when Page defeated Nah-Shon “The Rock-n-Rolla” Burrell via unanimous decision. This was, by the way, Page’s first win where he went all the distance – before that “The Venom” finished all his battles in the opening round.
In February Michael Page was supposed to fight against Curtis Millender at Bellator 134 “The British Invasion” but had to withdraw due to a cut. Page was replaced by Brennan Ward who used his chance and submitted Millender via a rear naked choke one minute and thirty seven seconds in the first round.
This time Page faces Rudy Bears who previously scored two wins in a row at Shamrock Promotions over Zak Bucia and Josh Weston. This matchup makes Friday night at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut packed with welterweight action, as Bellator MMA Welterweight World champ Douglas Lima will face Andrey Koreshkov from Russia and Chris Honeycutt is going to lock horns with Paul Bradley.
