In true 'MVP' style, Bellator MMA star Michael Venom Page continued his fine professional record by taking victory over David Rickels by an astonishing verbal submission.

Venom, a former points fighting kickboxing champion, came up against Rickels in the main event of Bellator 200 on Friday at the SSE Arena, Wembley.

He used his range, timing and technical skill to astounding effect, Rickels could not get near the super quick Page, whilst at the same time not being able to avoid multiple, effortless attacks.

After a stylish spinning kick to Rickels head, a clean cross to the eye early in round two hurt 'the Caveman' to the extent he could no longer continue. Signalling to the referee he no longer wanted to fight.

Page's form book now stands at 13-0, with 11 of his wins coming inside the fight distance. It's another impressive victory on Michael Page's campaign to climb to the top of Mixed Martial Arts.
