Bellator MMA rolls into London on Friday night with Bellator 267, topped by a welterweight rematch years in the making.
Douglas Lima vs. Michael Page 2 tops the bill, which sees the two former welterweight grand prix participants on very different trajectories. Douglas Lima won the grand prix, defeating Rory MacDonald to reclaim 170lb gold. He hasn’t won since. Lima dropped a middleweight title fight to Gegard Mousasi in his next outing, then lost the belt against to current champ Yaroslav Amodov.
Lima remains the only loss of Michael “Venom” Page’s professional record. The kickboxer has been on a tear since that fight, winning five straight, and finishing four of those opponents. That includes wins over UFC alum Shinsho Anzai and the gritty Derek Anderson.
The winner of their rematch should be in prime position for a shot at Amosov, yet to make his first title defense.
In the co-main event, women’s featherweight Leah McCourt looked to continue her winning ways. The North Ireland-born fighter was looking for her sixth straight victory, having gone undefeated since dropping her pro debut. She was up against Jessica Borga — who happened to be the only American fighter on the card.
Bellator 267 takes place Friday, October 1, 2021 at the SSE Arena in London, England. The preliminary card can be streamed above. Where available, the main card Bellator 267 live stream is below. Full results can also be found below.
