For Michael Page, Bellator 281 and fighting in front of friends and family in London is the perfect time secure a world title.
Michael Page is ready.
Page wants nothing more than to cement his status and win the interim welterweight title at Bellator 281. Page will meet Logan Storley in the main event.
The card takes place from London and the OVO Arena in Wembley. It will air live on Showtime.
“I love London and the energy I get from the supporters, my family and my team. It just feels like everyone is there for me. You guys have seen me bounce off energy, so when I get big energy I just love to show up. For me, the belt is the cherry on top, but I’m going to go out there and do what I normally do, regardless of there being a belt.”
Along with Page vs. Storley, Lyoto Machida meets Fabian Edwards and Paul Daley fights for the final time.
Page is 20-1 in his career and ranked No. 1 in the division. Bellator created an interim title as champion Yaroslav Amosov is helping defend his country of Ukraine against Russia.
“It’s been different [preparing for this fight].
Although they [Amosov and Storley] are exceptionally good at wrestling, there’s different styles of wrestling,” Page said. “I found Logan’s style more familiar to the majority of MMA fighters, versus Amosov’s style, so technically, it’s been a better adjustment. His striking is nowhere near mine. It’s not even something I’m considering for this fight.”
