Bellator London: Page KOs Melillo
It was another quick night of action for Michael “Venom” Page in his home of London, England, as he defeated Giovanni Melillo in the main event of Bellator London at the SSE Arena.
Melillo stayed on the outside, as he ate several low kicks from Page. Melillo elected to hesitate and wait for his moment, searching for any opening and feeling his opponent out.
That was all the time MVP needed, however, as he caught Melillo with a strong, counter right that dropped him down and out before the two-minute mark.
