The Bellator
MMA
machine rolls along without Yaroslav
Amosov
.

Michael
Page
will face Logan
Storley
for the interim welterweight championship in the
Bellator
281
headliner on Friday at The SSE Arena in London. The winner
figures to serve as the divisional torchbearer until Amosov can
return from his war-torn Ukrainian homeland. Page steps to the
stage on a run of six consecutive victories. The
London Shootfighters
star last appeared at Bellator 267, where
he eked out a contentious split decision over former titleholder
Douglas
Lima
on Oct. 1. Storley, meanwhile, has recorded back-to-back
wins. The
Sanford MMA
rep last competed on Feb. 19, when he laid claim to
a unanimous verdict over Neiman
Gracie
in the Bellator 274 main event.
