is Michael Page the real deal?

What are people's thoughts on MVP? Once again he showboated his way to any easy TKO WIN but do people think he can keep doing this against the higher ups in the Bellator WW division or will he get taken apart?

I genuinely don't know what to think!!

Wait and find out! Give him a strong wrestler or a stronge striker and see how he handles them. He'll probably keep beating people in Bellator for a while yet.

As soon as he fights a good striker with experience he'll get knocked out spectacularly.

He's fought trash upon trash, a good grappler or a good striker or heaven forbid both destroys him. He's like jimi manuwa but nowhere near as good or talented.

I have a feeling his kryptonite will end being a good striker rather than a grappler, he's been on the floor and won by submission twice (both times takedowns were initiated by opponent), plus he's good at getting back up, even the Bellator 120 fight he was clinched up alot and wasn't taken down or controlled very much at all.

A good striker with experience won't be phased by his weird stance, will find his chin and it will look pretty spectacular.

So MVP is getting dissed for fighting low level fights.....at 6-0?

Ricky Rainey was 8-2, 1-0 in Bellator, with 5 KO wins. That's a decent fight to set up, and because MVP made it a joke, Rainey is now "trash"?

He's moving up correctly. He has very little experience in MMA so he's learning it as he goes. He's facing similar record opponents along the way too.

For the record I don't think he's trash, he'll have a good career though I do fear once he gets "found out" any top fighters will have a blue-print.

I wasn't replying to you. I'm pretty much of the same persuasion.

You have to think that MVP's entire gym is grappling, knowing that's the area he's considered weakest. If he keeps his currently style though, he IS facing an amazing KO loss along the lines.

MVP is a great talent but I don't appreciate the whole showboating BS that he brings with it. I end up hoping he gets KO'd.
