Everything you need to know about Bellator 248: Michael “Venom” Page vs. Ross Houston. Watch live
One of MMA’s rising stars makes his 2020 debut this Saturday as welterweight Michael “Venom” Page takes on Ross Houston in the main event of Bellator 248 from the Accor Arena in Paris. It is the first significant mixed martial arts show in France.
After suffering the first loss of his career to current 170-pound champion Douglas Lima in the semifinals of the welterweight grand prix at Bellator 221 in May 2019, Page ended the year with three consecutive knockouts.
Houston comes into the fight making his Bellator debut. The native of Scotland has primarily fought for the Cage Warriors promotion in the United Kingdom. Houston is unbeaten in nine contests but hasn’t competed since June 2019 when he went to a no-contest with Nicolas Dalby.
By far, this is the toughest test of Houston’s career, as he’s never faced anyone the caliber of Page. Anytime “MVP” steps into the cage, it’s always an all-action affair, so expect a dynamic contest for however long it lasts.
