One of the most unorthodox strikers ever, “MVP” has steadily worked his way up the welterweight ranks. Known for his in-cage ferocity, Page lit the world on fire with his devastating knockout of Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos. “Venom” is must-see TV and with an undefeated record of 13-0 with 11 by stoppage, the 31-year-old Londoner brings mayhem.

A veteran of Strikeforce and the UFC, Paul Daley is one of the hardest hitting strikers in MMA history. Banned from the UFC in 2010 after hitting Josh Koscheck after the bell, Daley owns his bad boy image.
