Bellator 216: Michael Page vs. Paul Daley fight date, price, how to watch, live stream

Bellator 216 should be a memorable event when British rivals and hard-hitting strikers Michael “Venom” Page and Paul Daley battle in the main event on Saturday, Feb. 16 at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn., live and exclusively on DAZN. The fight is part of the first round in the welterweight grand prix tournament. The winner will face Douglas Lima in the semifinals.

Page (13-0) is one of the most exciting fighters in the sport. All but two of his victories have come by way of stoppage, including one of the most violent knockouts you will ever see when a flying knee caused a fractured skull to Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos at Bellator 158. 

Daley (40-16-2) has won 30 of his fights by knockout, including a vicious KO in a comeback win over Lorenz Larkin at Bellator 183. “Semtex” looks to get back on the winning track after losing to Jon Fitch by unanimous decision at Bellator 199.

The animosity between Page and Daley runs deep. 

It all started in 2016 when they started trash talking each other through various media platforms. Bellator tried to make the fight on several occasions, but Daley showed a lack of interest because he felt Page hadn’t done enough to earn a fight with him.

Everything came to a boiling point at Bellator 179 after Daley lost by second-round submission to welterweight champion Rory MacDonald. Daley exited the cage to go after Page, and a scuffle ensued in the crowd. No one was hurt before hoards of security separated the two. Then, Page didn’t compete for the promotion for 18 months — he started his professional boxing career, going 2-0, so the fight was put on the backburner.

But now, the long awaited clash is upon us. Don’t blink or walk away because both Page and Daley will be looking for the violent knockout.
