This last Saturday, after winning against Jefferson George at UCMMA 29 via yet another spectacular knock-out, Michael Page revealed he has signed to Bellator Fighting Championships.

Bellator has been on the rise since they originally hit the scene. They focus on the tournament format, which many fans like and most recently have signed a contract to have their events held on Spike TV.

With that signing taking place, the signing of an exciting prospect like Page is fantastic news to hear.

Page has been training in karate since he was three years old, and was raised in a martial arts family. He currently trains with The London Shootfighters, a camp with a slew of recognizable names such as James Thompson, Mostapha Al Turk, Marius Zaromskis, Karlos Vemola, Zelg Galesic and John Hathaway.

Be sure to keep an eye out on this exciting prospect and Universal Combat News will keep you informed once his first opponent for Bellator is announced.

Awesome news. I literally watched his fight against Jefferson George last night as it was on TV. Dude actually had me excited to watch a UCMMA event, which is groundbreaking. Sucks I won't be able to see him on TV but I can always get Bellator streaming :D. Awesome news, and get ready for some exciting stuff from this guy.

This guy is perfect for MMA. He has that style which will make people love him or hate him and its also the style which usually results in him getting a crazy KO or getting brutally KOd himself! So at least someone will be happy after all his fights!

Yeah he's just asking to get knocked the **** out, but at the same time he's having amazing performances with great knockouts himself. Win/Win wether you love him or hate him.

Was the fight last night an MMA fight or a Kickboxing fight? They were seperated immediately after clinching, and there was a count after Page knocked George out.

Enjoy watching the dude, but he's asking to get KTFO. Entertaining, but incredibly arrogant, and he's due a big KO loss.

Apparently it was K-1 rules. God knows though.

He's flashy and exciting. Just really wonder what his ground game and take down defense is like.

I like his style but he should stay in the UK and keep his career going. Nothing wrong with being the big fish in a small pond.

Is he the Silva like UK striker?

UK1. I think UCMMA were trying to bubble wrap him because he got taken down in his fight before. But I don't see the issue because he submitted his opponent quickly after it, which shows another asset in his skillset. He was a kickboxer before this though and in England they often have amature or K1 fights on the cards so nothing major.

For the time being, yes. Bellator now? He's not really close to me. He should have stayed with UCMMA and went as far as he could with that. He could definently learn and improve in taking fights with Denniston Sutherland, Mark Wier or Jake Boswick, Jack Marshman, Leeroy Barnes etc. They could probably even get him a fight with former Bellator fighter Jim Wallhead or Frank Trigg. A lot of stuff for him that doesn't involve going to the big shows just yet. Good for Bellator fans though.

I guess, but his MMA record is 2-0. It's just because he was so cocky in his first fight, and finished it with what I think is called a 720' roundhouse kick, that he is often compaired as such.

That's good marketing here. Look extremely flashy and whatnot against fighters who aren't supposed to share the cage with you. Bam, land a contract with Bellator.
