Bellator President Scott Coker says Michael Page One battle may be away from the title shot.
Coker accepts the idea that pages (18-1 MMA, 14-1 BMMA) face Neiman Gracie (10-1 MMA, 8-1 BMMA) In the first quarter of 2021 title eliminator match, the winner cracks Bellator Welterweight Champion Douglas Lima.
“When I think of MVP, you’re talking about one of the most talented fighters I’ve ever seen,” Coker told MMA Junkie. “He’s very fast and explosive. To be honest with him, I think he and Neiman Gracie will be fighting each other someday, and the winner will be able to fight Douglas Lima. It’s like it’s in my head, it’s what I’m thinking. “
The only defeat in Page’s career was brought to Lima at the Bellator Welterweight Grand Prix in May 2019. Since then, he has won four times in a row, three of which have been knocked out.
He recently distanced himself from former Cage Warriors welterweight champion Ross Houston at Bellator 248, but this wasn’t Page’s best show. “MVP” Complain about slippery canvas At the Accor Arena in Paris, France, Coker agreed that it could affect his performance.
“I think there were a lot of things I wanted to do in the MVP’s arsenal that I couldn’t do because of the canvas,” Coker said. “I originally thought it might be a ring rust, but I didn’t think so after talking to all the fighters who fought that night.”
