Michael “Venom” Page is one of the more entertaining strikers the sport of mixed martial arts (MMA) has to offer.

Page is currently a competitor in the Bellator Welterweight Grand Prix Tournament. He will face Douglas Lima in the tournament’s semifinals this weekend (Sat. May 11, 2019) at Bellator 221. Page’s dynamic striking style and build has garnered comparisons to the likes of Anderson Silva and Israel Adesanya.

Speaking to media recently at a Bellator 221 media day, Page addressed these comparisons:

“Obviously, it’s an obvious comparison,” Page said. “We got very unique styles, it’s not the same, but very unique. I actually really enjoyed them battling together. I felt like that needed to be a five-round fight – more from them.

“But yeah, I get the comparisons. People love these fantasy match-ups, and it would be a great match-up if any of us were to fight. “

Page is undefeated in his MMA career thus far. He has racked up a record of 14-0, eight of those coming by way of knockout. Three of Page’s victories have also been by way of a submission. He’ll take on Lima, a former Bellator welterweight champion who comes off a submission victory over Andrey Koreshkov.

Newly-crowned interim UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya is a sniper in the Octagon. He’s also an assassin on social media, so critics be warned.

Adesanya defeated Kelvin Gastelum at UFC 236 in an instant classic five-round contest last month. It was the latest interim 185-pound title bout in UFC history, the previous one being at UFC 213 in July 2017.

The reigning champ, Robert Whittaker, defeated Yoel Romero on that night. Their war was so close the UFC would book an immediate rematch for UFC 225. However, Romero would not make weight.

Ever the clever strategist, Adesanya would have some words for Romero while answering his critics all in one fell swoop (via Twitter):

“…and tha f*ck what. Y’ll act like Romero is the champ, never makes weight, never won a UFC belt.
Them: ‘yOu foUGht aN OLd sIlVa!!’
Me: Anderson is 44, Yoel is 42…??

?…you humpty dumpty mothaf*ckas are so dumb ???
‘hiTtinG hiZ pHySikeL pEak LAtEr’ hahaha oh man I can’t.
Did you know he tested positive in 2015 for banned substances, accepted a 6 month sanction and kept on going? Y’all are dumb af ?#everybodysonsteroids #ijustrollblunts” Adesanya tweeted.

Romero responded like only he can.

“I see you soon boi #iluhju #peopleschamp”

Unfortunately, Romero was forced out of his scheduled bout with Jacare Souza at last weekend’s UFC Ft. Lauderdale due to pneumonia.

As the Cuban fighter is seemingly always one fight away from a title shot, it’s likely he and “The Last Stylebender” will have the opportunity to settle this in the Octagon. Whether or not the title will be on the line remains to be seen.
