Title Shot Not Out Of The Question For Michael Page – MMA Root

After his most recent performance against Derek Anderson, it appears that Bellator President Scott Coker is not ruling out a title shot for Michael Page.

Michael Page once again joined his reel of violence when he demolished Anderson with unpredictable punches thrown from his hip. The 6 ″ 3 ″ welterweight broke his opponent’s nose and the fight was called off by the referee between rounds. In case you doubted the kind of power Michael Page possesses, here’s a photo of Anderson after the damage was done.

Before the fight, Michael Page expressed his frustration with the Bellator promotion, but was adamant about getting another title shot. Specifically, the rising superstar pointed to issues with improper promotion coupled with inactivity due to the company taking a hiatus due to the pandemic. However, it seems like Michael Page may get what he wants, as Coker mentioned that he thinks the bombastic star could be considered for the next title shot.

“So for me, the guy is explosive, he’s fast, he’s got a lot of power. Scott Coker said at the Bellator 258 press conference. It could knock people out. He is a dangerous guy, and for anyone, because his style is so unorthodox, it will be interesting for any athlete to try to overcome that because if you are a fighter and you try to defeat him, you could end up with a problem. knee to your face. He’s fast and I think he deserves a title shot, so let’s see what happens with the Lima fight. But depending on what happens and when ‘MVP’ wants to fight again, I don’t think a title shot is out of the question, to be honest. ”

Michael Page understands that most companies were under pressure, but admits that he is open to dialogue and solutions to his perceived problem. Champion Douglas Lima fought Page at the welterweight Grand Prix in 2019. Initially, the fight was very close until Lima nailed Page with a leg kick and followed with a nasty hook and scored the knockout. Without a doubt, there is an appetite for a rematch, and things seem to be going in that direction.

If Michael Page gets a rematch against Douglas Lima, who do you think will take home the victory?
