Michael “Venom” Page Is Not Tripping Over Paul Daley

Calm and smiling before Bellator 216, Page has plans for another “W” and a vacation.

Cool like the Caribbean breeze is what best describes Michael “Venom” Page’s fight week.

The Trinidadian-Jamaican fighter remains confident in his welterweight match-up against Paul Daley. Facing the well-known slugger in the first round of Bellator’s welterweight tournament, Page feels prepared for Bellator 216.

Daley’s kickboxing background is no secret, so”MVP” secured GLORY champions to help him prepare for this bout. He even traveled to Amsterdam, where the Dutch are known for their proficiency in the sport. All of this has Page already thinking about his post-fight vacation. He has trained hard and worked effortlessly to try and get in the head of “Semtex” by calling him “Paula” and “Tampax” while also trolling him on Instagram.


For Page, its all fun. He’s enjoying every minute of the very personal welterweight Battle for Britain and is looking forward to a vacation with another “W” on his record.
