It took 21 pro fights to get there, but one of the biggest names in Bellator MMA eventually entered Sherdog.com’s divisional rankings.
Michael Page avenged his only professional loss in headlining the Bellator 267, picking up a controversial split-decision victory over Douglas Lima at SSE Arena in London last Friday. Although the flashy Englishman’s record is filled with favorable matchmaking, a victory over the No.6 welterweight still means something. That said, âVenomâ enters our poll at No.10, while Lima, on the heels of their third straight loss, drops from sixth to 11th.
Meanwhile, Thiago Santos drops from the Top 10 light heavyweight after a lackluster victory over Johnny Walker in the headliner of UFC Fight Night 193 on Saturday night. “Marreta” drops from ninth to 11th and is replaced by Phil Davis in the Top 10 of 205 pounds.
In the weekly housekeeping news, Rafael dos Anjos falls off the welterweight rankings as he continues to pursue a return to 155 pounds, while Lina Lansberg leaves the female bantamweight poll after not fighting since January 2020.
