Taking main event status at Bellator 267; a welterweight rematch fight between former champion, Douglas Lima, and the ever-entertaining Michael ‘Venum’ Page.
‘MVP’ is known for his flashy striking and has an elite kickboxing pedigree. Lima was Bellator’s standout welterweight king until recently when he was defeated by Amosov. Lima will now seek to climb back up to the top. However, standing in his way is the dangerous striker from England. Lima was victorious the first time, but MVP has vowed to take revenge.
The event is co-headlined by Northern Irish standout Lean McCourt, who takes on Jessica Borga in an electric women’s featherweight matchup. A win for McCourt may well send her right into the Bellator women’s flyweight title picture.
A host of prospects from the UK make up the rest of the card, with former Cage Warriors title challenger Jack Grant making his promotional debut, whilst Luke ‘The Gent’ Trainer seeks to improve his perfect record to 5-0 against the ever game Yannick Bahati.
