The rematch went to Michael Page, much to the delight of the homecrowd.

Page scored a decision victory over Douglas Lima Friday in the main event of Bellator 267. The card aired live on Showtime from The SSE Arena in Wembley, London.

“I wanted to finish him. He’s a tough man. I understand why he’s been a champion three times,” Page said. “Even when I hit him with those big shots, he just kept coming and then he started to adjust and make it more difficult. I was confident. I knew he was going to go for a takedown. Every single striker that stands in front of me, I turn them into wrestlers. Every single one of them. Now I want that bling! I’ve come over and got my redemption. Now I want that bling.”

The win moved Page’s record to 20-1 overall and positioned him as the No. 1 contender. Lima fell to 32-10 with the loss.

Leah McCourt downed Jessica Borga via decision in the co-main event, with Luke Trainer finishing Yannick Bahati.
