Former Bellator Welterweight Champion Douglas Lima is set to fight Michael Page on Friday Oct 1 at the SSE Arena, Wembley. This will be a long-awaited rematch for the fighters.
They met at Bellator 221 in 2019. in the semifinal round for Bellator MMA Welterweight World Grand Prix. In that fight, Michael Page lost the bout in a second round knockout. Nevertheless, it was MVP’s only loss at MMA. So, there is no doubt that this time MPV will be looking to take revenge. In addition, Leah McCourt will take on Jessica Borga in the co-main event of the evening.
However, since their last meeting in 2019, both fighters have been in opposite directions. While Page won his next five fights, Lima appeared in three bouts but won only one and he lost his last two appearances at Bellator 250 and Bellator 260. In his last fight at 260 Lima lost his Bellator Welterweight World Championship title to Yaroslav Amosov.
So, tonight’s fight will be a great showdown between the two contenders.
