Michael “Venum” Page will get an opportunity to avenge the only loss on his record when he takes on former three time welterweight champion Deounouglas Lima (32-9 MMA, 14-5 BMMA) at Bellator 267 main event, which takes place on October 1st at The SSE Arena in Wembley, London.
Page (19-1 MMA, 15-1 BMMA) was unbeaten and seemed unbeatable before the first fight and as usual wasn’t expected to lose to Lima but things went south in the second round, when Lima connected a leg kicks that sent Page to the canvas. The follow up from Lima knocked Page out cold.
Page has since won five fights in a row since his encounter with Lima at the Bellator Welterweight Grand Prix semi final back in 2019. In his last outing, Page stopped Derek Anderson, smashing his nose in with a leg kicks. Page will now set sights on avenging his loss to Lima in his hometown.
Lima went on to recapture the Bellator Welterweight title by defeating Rory MacDonald in the Final of the Grand Prix back in 2019. He then went up in weight, challenging Gegard Mousasi at Bellator 250 for the then Vacant light heavyweight title but fail. Lima eventually lost his title in his first defence against Yaroslav Amosov at Bellator 260 in June.
