I believe he had an awesome kickboxing record, not full contact though.

His movement appears to be good enough to keep his hands by his side, and atleast he can use an anchor punch from that position and it makes it easier for him to stuff TDs. His speed really helps but he also throws strikes with mean intentions.

I was happy to see him sub his last opponent almost immediately after they got to the ground, it's good that he showed a little versatility to his game.

Bright future, I just hope he's got a chin.

great news, we get to see more of this guy. I think his last fight was a kick boxing bout as his MMA opponent pulled out and this is all they could do to make a fight for him.

He has had a fight since the armbar win. About a week ago he fought K1 rules at UCMMA and got a nice 2 punch combo KO.

I'm excited to see what this guy can do. Hopefully he proves to be a UFC worthy fighter.

I don't understand the Silva comparisons, really, they aren't alike in a single way other than being rangy black guys. He's more similar to Stephen Wonderboy Thompson or Justin Lawrence than he is Silva.

Silva has always been more substance than flash. Page doesn't demonstrate good head movement either, he simply leaps in and out in typical TKD fashion and throws a bunch of kicks. At best maybe he can be another Lyoto and win a lot of point decisions based on maintaining range, but that in and out style leaping straight back stuff doesn't work that well. He actual reminds me of Lyoto in that he's always going backwards any time his opponent moves forward. Anderson rarely does this, Anderson mostly stands in the pocket and uses subtle head movement to open up counter opportunities, this guy has displayed very limited countering skill.

His punching technique isn't good either, but that's likely the result of rarely throwing punches in TKD and karate.

Oh, and there's that whole grappling thing.


Long story short this guy has a hell of a lot of obstacles to overcome, and cant say Im rooting for him. He's quite a douchebag.

^I wish people would stop taking offence at him just because of who he is compaired to. It's all over Youtube aswell. He has no head movement? He's had TWO mma fights and ONE K1 fight. What more can you ask for? He has made one mistake throughout the fights in falling, which he quickly followed up with an armbar.

I thought he was a douche at first too, but he has a point in his interviews. "I'm not fighting like this to be cocky or anything, it's how I fight, check my kickboxing videos". I posted a vid on youtube of his highlights. It's in the general MMA forum. Ypou'll see that his entire kickboxing career had the same striking style and the same attacks. He's not just doing this because his opponents were nobodies.

He's also signed to Super Fight League too. I see him getting brutally KOed at some point in his career, but because that keeps me excited to see his fights, he's staying in my avatar and sig

Quite diggin' the guy, I'd personally steer clear of comparisions at this point as he's had so few MMA fights (!) but definitely one to keep an eye on.

In the pre interview to his last fight, he was telling people that he was the "One and only MVP" and not the next "Anderson Silva or Jon Jones".
