Bellator returns to London with Michael ‘Venom’ Page vs. Douglas Lima 2 |  MMA News

Bellator will return to London on October 1 with the unmissable rematch between No.1 ranked Douglas ‘The Phenom’ Lima and No.2 ranked Michael ‘Venom’ Page headlining.

Fans will return to SSE Arena at Wembley as two of Bellator’s top welterweights face off in a high-stakes game.

Lima (32-9) and Page (19-1) will put everything on the line, with the winner reserving a rush ticket to a title shot against new welterweight champion Yaroslav Amosov.

Lima and Page first met in May 2019 at the Bellator 221 in the semifinals of the World Welterweight Grand Prix. After a tied first round, Lima sent Page to the mat with a leg kick, which he then followed up with a dramatic punch and ground and pound strikes to end the fight.

Lima will look to upset the faithful in his hometown and earn an immediate chance to reclaim the welterweight title he lost to Amosov by unanimous decision in June.

“MVP has put together an impressive winning streak, but when he comes back to the cage with me the end result will be the same as the first time around,” said Lima.

“Right now my mission is to put the belt back around my waist. Anyone who stands in my way will be dismantled.”

Page knocked out Richard Kiely with a brutal flying knee in the first round, moments after being deducted a point for showboating, in Dublin at the Bellator 228

Page is currently on a five-game winning streak full of true knockouts, with the only loss in his MMA record to date at the hands of Lima, a loss he is hungry to avenge.

“The comeback is always more important than the setback. It was always going to happen, it’s written in the stars,” Page said.

“The one and only MVP is back, and I’ll have my redemption outside my hometown the only way I know how – in venomous style.”
