How Michael Page shattered Goiti Yamauchi’s knee?
In the 26th second of the fight, Venom shot a lightning bolt-like leg kick right at the knee of his opponent. Yamauchi, who has a record of 28 wins and 6 losses in his professional mixed martial arts career, did not see that kick coming, and he fell instantaneously and was unable to stand as a result of breaking his knee.
Page (21-2-0) got back on the winning track with this easy triumph. Last year the British fighter suffered a defeat against Logan Storley which was just the second loss of his professional MMA career.

The knee shatter also shocked Venom as he did not realize the depth of the injury at first sight. Later in a post-fight interview with the MMA Junkie, Page shared his surprise at the horrible knockout he caused.
”I saw him go down and I just thought, I don’t know – nerve (damage), whatever. But when I saw him grasp his leg, I was like, ‘He’s not getting back up.’ I didn’t see the lump (in his kneecap) until I looked up at the screen. I’m in my celebrating element, and then I actually looked up to see what it was, and it kind of took the energy out of me.” said Page.
The 35-year-old fighter is currently aiming to secure a shot at a title by the end of this year. Who do you think Venom will face off against next? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
