Fresh off their victories at BELLATOR 267, both Michael ‘Venom’ Page and Leah McCourt have climbed their respective divisions’ rankings and entered into Bellator’s pound for pound rankings.

Page, who defeated Douglas Lima in the main event of Bellator 267, has leaped frogged Lima to claim the No.1 ranking in the men’s welterweight division. The UK fighter’s record currently stands at 20-1, and it will be interesting to see if his next fight will be a title clash against the division’s reigning champion Yaroslav Amosov.

The 34-year-old’s split decision win over Lima earned him the number eight spot on the men’s pound-for-pound list. Page has spoken about wanting to run the fight back with Lima, preferably in a five-round affair, instead of the three rounds bout, which was what their fight at BELLATOR 267 was.
