Michael Page has been given the spotlight by Bellator.

And more times than not, “MVP” has delivered.

Page will headline Bellator 267 against former champion Douglas Lima live on Showtime from Wembley and the SSE Arena in London.

While still young in his career, Page vows to showcase a new and improved version of himself this weekend.

“I have evolved, he (Lima) is stuck in his ways. Since we last fought, he has not done anything in his fights that shows me he is different or got better,” Page said. “On the other hand, I have evolved and changed my diet and training to become a completely new, faster, and better fighter.

“I love striking and prefer that, but if I am not capable anywhere else, it takes away from my striking. If I get taken down and can’t get back up, then what does my striking do? I need to be well-rounded in order to be complete. I actually enjoy Jiu-Jitsu, though. It allows my creative personality to flourish.”

These two met once before, with Lima earning a knockout during the Bellator Welterweight Grand Prix. 

Page is focused on getting back that loss, as has become a calling for himself.

“My personality has always been quite petty. If someone gets me with a takedown, I must get you back. If it’s a submission, I have to get you back,” he said. “And, in this case a loss, then I have to get you back. I am looking forward to getting this loss back and showing how much I have improved since our last fight.”
