Michael “Venom” Page’s last fight didn’t take long to finish and he’s already set to return to action.
Bellator announced Friday that Page will fight Derek Anderson in the welterweight main event of the promotion’s return to The SSE Arena in London on Nov. 23.
At Bellator 227 in August, Page (15-1) made short work of Richard Kiely, dispatching of his opponent in under three minutes with a flying knee knockout. Afterwards, the Londoner found himself embroiled in a controversy with referee Dan Miragliotta after the two got into a verbal dispute during and after the contest.
Anderson (16-3, 1 NC) has been competing for Bellator since 2013 primarily as a lightweight and owns a 7-3 record in the organization. “The Barbaric” holds a pair of decision nods over Patricky Freire, as well as notable wins over Saad Awad and Brandon Girtz. He is currently on a two-fight win streak and is 4-1 in his last five appearances.
