Bellator has reportedly booked Michael ‘Venom’ Page vs. Paul ‘Semtex’ Daley for the quarterfinals of the welterweight grand prix. Generally speaking, this is great news. It’s part of a fantastic tournament, a competitive fight, true grudge match and so much more. The only problem is you’ll have two British fighters competing in Connecticut, not the United Kingdom. And even then, that’s not the worst problem to have, but when there’s pressure on fans to just accept that some of Bellator’s partners really wanted the fight stateside, there is a problem. Fans should be appreciative the fight is being made, but they’re not wrong to not subvert their interests to DAZN’s or the Mohegan Sun’s.
