After debuting in the UFC with a dominant victory over Kevin holland, Michael Page want more. In an interview with 'UFC DAY OFF', the former Bellator made public his distaste for Colby covington. Featured in the top 15 welterweights (up to 77,1kg), the Englishman admitted his desire to measure strength with 'bad boy'.

Former Bellator star, Michael was hired by the UFC to reinforce the division led by Leon edwards. In his debut, the athlete didn't give his opponent a chance and beat his rival in the judges' decision.

A veteran of the category, Covington is experiencing a moment of uncertainty regarding his future. In his last match, the North American was largely dominated by the current champion of the division and moved away from a new challenge for the throne.
