Page Aims To Stop Lima
DAZN released a new video hyping Bellator 221. In the clip, Page said he’s gunning for the finish over Lima:
“Douglas Lima is getting knocked out. I’m here to make a massive statement in this grand prix tournament. I have good sparring partners here. It’s been an amazing replica for the up and coming fight against Lima. Big kicks, big punches, that massive left hook. It’s been a really good replica, so I’m looking forward to this challenge.”
Page earned his spot in the semifinals of the Bellator Welterweight World Grand Prix with a unanimous decision win over Paul Daley. Lima choked out Andrey Koreshkov to nab his place in the semifinals.
