It wasn’t the undisputed title on the line at Bellator 281, however. With champ Yaroslav Amosov defending his native Ukraine against invading Russian forces, an interim belt was set to be awarded to the winner of MVP vs. Logan Storley — the latter of whom had jumped at the opportunity after Amosov was forced out of the fight.

In the evening’s co-main event, Lyoto Machida returned to the middleweight division to take on #4-ranked Fabian Edwards. Also of note, Paul Daley was set to compete for the final time, wrapping up his lengthy career against Brazil’s Wendell Giacomo.

Michael Page vs. Logan Storley: Candidly, this is a tough fight to predict. Page and Storley each have such vast advantages in their preferred arts that it may boil down to who has the greater deficiencies in their opponent’s area of expertise. MVP has a serious six-inch height and 8.5-inch reach advantage that greatly benefits his rangy striking game. Conversely, Storley’s lower center of gravity invites single leg and double leg takedowns if he can get on the inside. It has been three years since Page was outwrestled by Paul Daley, so we will somewhat excuse that performance. The multiple takedowns scored by Lima last year are more troubling. MVP would do well to stay away from wild kicks that could leave him off balance or at an inopportune angle. He has the head movement and distance management to stick with his hands down style and that will help him fish for under hooks and push away a Storley who must get in close. Storley and Gracie lit each other up for 25 minutes. That is not a game that will prove fruitful against MVP. Storley must find a way to crowd Page immediately, either against the fence or with takedowns. Storley’s near-blunder against Schiro inspires some hesitancy. It takes just one takedown to completely change a fight’s setting. Let’s side with Storley this time.

Two homegrown stars have reached the mountaintop of Bellator’s welterweight division. Michael “Venom” Page and Logan Storley have each spent the majority of their career in the promotion. Their commitment to the craft conjures an interim welterweight championship match at Bellator 281 in Page’s backyard of London, England.

A pinpoint accurate and dynamic knockout artist, “MVP” has been criticized for fighting a relatively low level of competition. Page (20-1) has a number of experienced opponents and UFC veterans on his record and, more recently, has found success against ranked Bellator opposition. Page, in his last fight, avenged his only career loss to former champion Douglas Lima, earning a split decision in London and a title shot against reigning champion Yaroslav Amosov. Unfortunately, Amosov pulled out of the fight as the Ukrainian fighter continues to serve his country in the war with Russia. The downgrade from undisputed champion to interim champion has had no effect on Page’s morale heading into Bellator 281.

“100% still complete excitement. I’ve been saying it to people, but I still see myself as the champion at the end of it,” Page told CBS Sports. “The only difference is there is one person that when he comes, he’s first in line and he gets to jump the queue to fight the champion. That’s it. Outside of that, I just enjoy competing. I enjoy being on stage and being in front of a crowd. I enjoy the energy that they give me. There is so much that I enjoy about this. There is nothing that can take away from this moment.”
