The second half of Bellator’s weekend doubleheader took place on Saturday with Bellator 216. The event went down at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn., and streamed on DAZN following prelims on MMAjunkie.
Arguably the biggest grudge match in company history headlined the card. It didn’t live up to the hype, but Michael Page (14-0 MMA, 10-0 BMMA) managed to advance to the welterweight grand prix semifinals with a unanimous-decision victory over fellow Brit Paul Daley (40-17-2 MMA, 6-4 BMMA).
There were a number of other notable results on the card, as well. For more on the numbers, check below for 25 post-event facts from Bellator 216.
