Bellator
MMA
‘s return to England will see Michael
Page
look to finally have championship gold, albeit of the
interim variety, wrapped around his waist.

The main event of Bellator
281
will see Page take on Logan
Storley
for the interim welterweight championship. The
five-round title fight and the rest of the card are now official
after the weigh-ins took place on Thursday morning, although prelim
fighter Alan Carlos
came in 3.2 pounds overweight for his middleweight bout against
Charlie
Ward
. The rest of the mixed martial artists all made
weight.

Page (20-1) has rebounded from his first career defeat, a brutal
knockout at the hands of Douglas
Lima
, by rattling off a six-fight win streak. Most recently,
“Venom” got revenge via split decision over Lima. It’s now time for
“MVP” to cement himself as the number one contender to Yaroslav
Amosov
‘s world title by gaining the interim belt and the
British fighter weighed in at 168.6 pounds.

After the champion pulled out to defend his home country of
Ukraine, Storley (13-1) got the call for the interim title bout.
Ever since losing a split decision to Amosov, Storley has scored
back-to-back decision wins over Dante
Schiro
and Neiman
Gracie
. “Storm” officially weighed 169.4 pounds for the contest
and hopes to earn a rematch against Amosov.

Bellator 281 will air live on Showtime at 4 p.m. ET/1 p.m. PT,
while the prelims begin at 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT.
