Bellator’s Michael Page Wants Third Bout With Douglas Lima
For Michael Page, putting Douglas Lima away and meeting for a third time in the Bellator cage is what he desires next.
Despite being on the winning end, Bellator’s Michael Page wants Douglas Lima again.
Page scored a decision victory over Page in the main event of Bellator 267 recently. However, after initially calling for a title shot, “MVP” reversed course.
“I’m probably going to push to just get this one back again,” Page said (thanks to MMA Fighting for the quotes). “Let’s do five rounds. Why not? Let’s go longer.
“If by the end of the third, that had happened again, I’ve got two more rounds to find you and finish it properly.”
Page admitted that he didn’t balance his aggression in-fight, adding “I’ve gone from one end to the next, so hopefully I find that in the middle, then I finish him.”
The two met for the first time during the Bellator Welterweight World Grand Prix, with Lima scoring a finish. That remains the lone loss in Page’s career.
“I’ve been telling people from the beginning,” Page said. “I feel like no one really listens. I don’t care about the title. It’s a belt. The belt doesn’t mean anything.
