A long anticipated match up between MMA star Michael 'Venom' Page and his compatriot Paul Daley is finally happening, with the pair now arranged to come to blows in February 2019.
Bellator will return to the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, America on February 16th 2019, when Page will put his perfect 13-0 record on the line against his fierce rival Daley, who has a record of 40-16-2.
The contest forms part of Bellators Welterweight Grand Prix, with the winner progressing to the semi final stage to take on former champion Douglas Lima, who previously defeated Andrey Koreshkov in September 2018.
Former Kickboxing World Champion Page has firmly established himself as one of the leading British combat athletes. Since his MMA debut he's been a walking highlight reel, taking over half of his wins by stoppage, including making David Rickels quit the fight during the second round in his last outing.
Daley has alternated wins and losses over his last 6 fights, though he will be no pushover, having produced impressive knockout wins over Brennan Ward and Lorenz Larkin to each time bounce back from defeat. In his last bout, he lost via decision to Jon Fitch, and will be looking to come back strong against Page.
