Michael "Venom" Page x UFC Teased For Potential Debut vs. Ranked Welterweight

Michael "Venom" Page (or "MVP) is one of the largest MMA personalities outside of the UFC. The British striking phenom developed a name for himself and a large fanbase during his years throughout Bellator, where he developed a 17-2 record inside the promotion. On top of that, Page also has a professional boxing record of 2-0, a majority-decision loss in Bare Knuckle Boxing to Mike Perry, and an overall MMA record of 21-2, including eighteen finishes.

"MVP" has announced via the MMA Hour he's been "flirting" with the UFC but hasn't made any official announcements about his signing to the promotion. But, a recent leak courtesy of "FULL SEND PODCAST" on YouTube might've spoiled the surprise of Page's arrival in the UFC.

You can make out "M. Page" on the bottom right of the image and his opponent, the #12 ranked UFC Welterweight Kevin Holland. His name also comes under the rest of the main card for UFC 297, so it's safe to assume this matchup is targeted for the PPV of Strickland vs. du Plessis. However, neither Page nor Holland have announced the bout on their social media, so this isn't official yet.
