The undefeated Michael “Venom” Page was already set to compete on the Spike TV-televised Bellator 144 main card, which takes place inside Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn., on Oct. 23, 2015, but a Welterweight opponent had yet to be named.
That’s because finding a man to face the undefeated (8-0) phenom from London is no easy task. Just ask Rudy “Bad News” Bears.
Earlier this week, Bellator MMA revealed it has finally found his opponent with a little less than three weeks to go until showtime. Stepping into the fray against Page will be Charlie Ontiveros (6-3), the self styled “American Bad Boy” of Legacy Fighting Championship (LFC), who has spent the entirety of his career thus far in that promotion.
Ontiveros takes a short turnaround after having defeated Bilal Williams by split decision in August.
Bellator 144 will feature a dynamic main event rematch between former champion Brandon Halsey and top contender Rafael Carvalho for the vacant Bellator Middleweight title.
