4 burning questions heading into Bellator Europe 6

The Bellator cage makes its regular stop in London, England on Saturday, Nov. 23 as the SSE Arena at Wembley plays host to the promotion’s second visit of 2019 for Bellator Europe 6.

Headlining the card is one of the most talented athletes to come from English shores, as welterweight superstar Michael Page looks to put on a show for his hometown crowd. But “MVP” is just the cherry on top of a cake packed with British MMA flavor, with a host of domestic stars set for action throughout a deep fight card that looks set to produce plenty of fireworks in the capital.

Here are our four big burning questions ahead of Bellator Europe 6 on Saturday night:

What does MVP have in store for the London crowd this time?

You could argue that there’s even more pressure on “MVP” now after he lost his original dance partner and now faces a largely unheralded short-notice opponent.

Page (15-1 MMA, 11-1 BMMA) was all set to face off against Derek Anderson in England, but after “Barbaric” suffered injury complications during training camp, he was pulled from the fight, leaving Bellator matchmaker Jude Samuel with a late headache ahead of the event.

Italian Gianni Melillo has signed to step in, and will face Page looking to score arguably the biggest Bellator shock of the year after losing two of his last three outings by first-round KO.

It means all eyes will be on “MVP” when he steps into the cage against Melillo (13-4 MMA, 0-0 BMMA), and the expectation on the Brit to deliver another highlight-reel moment will be through the SSE Arena roof, given the opponent he’s facing.

It’s the sort of challenge Page will almost certainly relish, as he looks to leave the fans with another “wow” moment to talk about on the Tube ride home, just like he did against Evangelista Santos two years ago.

Can he produce another magic “MVP” moment at Wembley?
