Michael Page vs. Paul Daley is reportedly on for Feb. 16, but it won’t be taking place in England.
It’s no secret that Page and Daley have had a bitter beef brewing. The two once considered each other friends, but that ship has long sailed. It looks like they’ll finally get to share the Bellator cage, although the location isn’t what many were expecting.
‘Venom’ vs. ‘Semtex’ Reportedly Set For Connecticut
ESPN’s Brett Okamoto took to Twitter to report that sources have told him Page vs. Daley is a go for a Feb. 16 event inside the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut:

The location is puzzling to some as Page was born in London, England while Daley was born in Nottingham, England. It seemed like a no brainer for this bout to take place in England, but it appears it wasn’t meant to be.
Page vs, Daley will be part of the Bellator Welterweight World Grand Prix. We’ve already seen Douglas Lima choke out Andrey Koreshkov to advance in the tournament. Lorenz Larkin earned a unanimous decision in his bout against Ion Pascu and is now the official alternate of the tournament.
