The Brits Are Coming: MVP Vs Daley Bout Is Heading Stateside

The biggest MMA fight in Britain is coming to the States.

Bellator MMA returns to the Mohegan Sun Arena on February 15 and 16 for exciting MMA action. 

The matchup between Michael “Venom” Page (13-0) and Paul “Semtex” Daley (40-16-2) headlines the Bellator Welterweight World Grand Prix opening round.

The heavyhanded strikers will now settle the “Battle For Britain”.

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.

“Semtex”, the British version of C-4 explosive, has memorable bouts including a Bellator MMA knockout of the year over Brennan Ward in 2017.

Bellator: MVP vs. Daley will air exclusively on streaming service DAZN will be anchored by a heavyweight battle between Matt Mitrione (13-6) and Sergei Kharitonov (29-7, 1 NC).
