One of the fastest rising stars in the game is set to make his return early in 2016.
Bellator Welterweight MICHAEL “Venom” Page is set to face experienced veteran Fernando Gonzalez in the co-main event of Bellator 151. The event is scheduled for March 4th at the WinStar World Casino in Thackerville, OK.
Page (9-0, 5-0 in Bellator) has been touted as one of the most spectacular talents in Mma today. Finishing all but one of his pro fights in phenomenal fashion, Page has potential that many fans know that have not seen nearly enough of. One of the biggest criticisms about his career, despite it being very young, is that he has yet to face an elite fighter.
Gonzalez (24-13, 4-0 in Bellator MMA) has done well as of late since entering the promotion finishing the likes of Curtis Milender, Karo Parisyan, and also beating Welterweight tournament champion Karl Amoussou. Most recently Fernando competed in a Glory kickboxing match with fellow MMA welterweight Paul Daley in what was a highly competitive and exciting bout.
Bellator 151 will be headlined by a Bantamweight feature matchup between Joe Warren and Darrion Caldwell.
