Logan Storley was one of the hottest prospects in Bellator, but a back injury put everything on pause. Now healthy and hungry for success, he scored an impressive win this past Saturday night over Michael Page to claim the interim welterweight title
“Michael Venom Page vs Logan Storley full fight” is a video of Michael “Venom” Page losing to Logan Storley at Bellator London. It was the first time that he had lost in his professional career.
Logan Storley of the United States won the interim welterweight title at Bellator 281 in London, defeating Michael ‘Venom’ Page of the United Kingdom.
Storley beat Page, the home favorite, over five rounds as the new champion used a calculated wrestling strategy.
Despite one judge handing it to Page, 48-47, Storley was a deserving victor by split decision.
“I appreciate the fans being furious at me,” Storley stated.
“You can boo me all you want, but that man is gifted.” Don’t boo me because I won.
“I’ve worked out with a lot of folks, but I’ve never experienced that kind of speed and distance.” It’s quite embarrassing. He’s playing basketball in the center of the ring while also striking you. That man is incredible, and I had no choice but to act.
“You may boo me all you want, but I’m the world champion.”
In the end, Storley beat the odds in London, making it a historic night for British MMA and MVP.
Although the fans despised the action, Storley’s choice to adhere to his gameplan proved to be the correct one in the end. MVP will believe Storley did no harm with his wrestling, but the 35-year-failure old’s to get back to his feet was undoubtedly a major issue in his career’s second loss.
Storley, on the other hand, takes home an interim championship and may now look forward to a rematch with Yaroslav Amosov, who is presently competing in Ukraine.
In London, MVP falls flat.
Page fought to get close to Storley.
Page, backed by his brother and brother-in-law, made a striking arrival. He looked as calm as usual, and the audience was anticipating a spectacular performance from the lively striker following stunning knockouts for Fabian Edwards and Paul Daley.
Storley was backed by famed brawler and former UFC champion Robbie Lawler, but he showed no desire to face MVP on the ground.
For most of the opening round, Storley, 29, carried the battle to the ground, forcing Page into a defensive stance, which he would keep for the rest of the fight.
Storley permitted the start of the second round to remain on his feet after failing to make the most of his position. MVP attempted to go into showman mode, mocking Storley after a missed takedown, much to the pleasure of the audience.
Storley would aim at Page’s knees any time MVP went within close range, and he was too frequently successful. MVP was trapped against the cage for the remainder of the round. A other referee could have disqualified the two, but Jacob Montalvo was content to let Storley do his job and wear Page down.
Storley’s third round followed a similar trend, with him starting on his feet but swiftly moving to the ground. Despite the fact that Storley’s wrestling was not aggressive enough to trouble MVP, the Brit had no response for the American’s superiority.
In the fourth, Page finally got some satisfaction when Storley looked to slow down little. Page dived in and out of range at breakneck speed, keeping his toes on the ground. Although a flying knee nearly missed Storley, the follow-up right landed flat on him, briefly swaying him.
Page smirked at Storley as he struggled to answer as he landed a couple combos. Storley may have seen the round slipping away as he aimed for Page’s legs once again, bringing the round to a close by bearing down on his opponent.
Page was looking for a Hail Mary moment in the last round. He tried a risky flying knee, but it left him vulnerable to the takedown. Page attempted to rise up halfway through the round, but Storley threw him back down on the mat.
When the bout concluded with Page on the ground, MVP had no concerns since his opponent was declared the victor on the scorecards.
The “ufc” is the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Bellator MMA has a London branch, and Logan Storley took advantage of that by dominating Michael ‘Venom’ Page to claim the interim welterweight title in London.
