Michael Page becoming free agent

Michael 'Venom' Page

Bellator MMA’s Michael Page possesses arguably one of the most impressive highlight reels in MMA today. The British star has managed to rack up an impressive 12-0 professional record while racking up numerous highlights reel knockouts, most notably his flying knee KO win over Cyborg Santos nearly a year ago.

While Michael Page has remained under the Bellator MMA banner over the last three years, ‘Venom’ has just two fights left on his Bellator MMA contract, and admittedly, he isn’t quite sure what will be his next move.

He spoke to Champions.co:

“I honestly don’t know. Obviously, it’s a tough decision and position to be in. I’ve talked to all my loved ones, and it’s difficult, man. Everyone has their different views and stuff. When the time comes, I’ll really look into making that decision. For the minute, Bellator is home, and I’m just going to get on with it. I’m going to focus on Derek Anderson and nothing else.”

“I believe I’ve just got two more. I got this one [against Anderson] and then another one. Then, we will see. We will see what happens, man. I could well be a free agent. I have to keep my focus, though. I can’t look ahead, because if I were to lose this fight badly, then that changes things in a big way. I just have to do what I do best and put people away and entertain at the same time.”

Page is currently gearing up for his upcoming Bellator London scrap with Derek Anderson in May, where he will look to bounce back from a split decision win over Fernando Gonzalez, where he was criticized for putting on what fans considered to be a ‘boring’ fight. That fight will serve as the co-main event behind a main event scrap between Paul Daley vs. Rory MacDonald.
