Michael Page have dream fights in the UFC

The Englishman was a top welterweight contender throughout his decade-long career with Bellator. Signing with the UFC, he will likely get the biggest and most entertaining challenges in his successful career.

“I think there are dream fights, and a lot of those dream fights land in the UFC. How I feel now to how I felt when I first joined MMA, the whole goal was UFC because there was no other big shows that could really do anything,” Page said. “Over time, things have changed. It’s a lot more than just the name of the brand. There’s a lot more to it, but hopefully we can still get there and see those dream fights happen.”

A while back, UFC CEO Dana White expressed interest in adding “Venom” to the stacked welterweight roster.

“He’s a kid that we’re definitely interested in,” White said when asked about potentially signing Page. “He’s interested too. Possibly.”
