In a surprising turn of events, a leaked video from the UFC’s ‘war room’ has ignited a buzz on social media, hinting at an upcoming clash between former Bellator MMA welterweight title challenger Michael Page and fan-favorite contender Kevin Holland. If the leaked information is accurate, the two fighters are set to face off at UFC 297 on January 20 in Toronto, Canada.
Michael Page, a notable figure in Bellator MMA, has long been rumored to be making a move to the UFC. The leaked footage from the podcast featuring Dana White and The Nelk Boys adds weight to these speculations, showcasing a listing on the main card of UFC 297 that reads “Kevin Holland vs. M. Page.”
Page, who expressed his interest in joining the UFC, has been inactive since his first-round TKO victory over Goiti Yamauchi at Bellator 292 in March. The potential debut against Kevin Holland could mark a significant moment for the British striker.
Kevin Holland, on the other hand, has faced ups and downs in his recent UFC outings. Having last competed at Noche UFC in September, Holland suffered a close split decision loss to Australian contender Jack Della Maddalena. Prior to that, he showcased his prowess with a dominant win over Michael Chiesa and a third-round KO victory against Santiago Ponzinibbio.
UFC 297 is scheduled for January 20 at the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Canada. The event’s main event will feature an undisputed middleweight title fight between Sean Strickland and Dricus du Plessis, while a co-headlining bout will see Mayra Bueno Silva and Raquel Pennington vying for the vacant bantamweight title.
As the leaked information continues to circulate, fans are eagerly anticipating the potential showdown between Michael Page and Kevin Holland. The UFC 297 card appears poised to deliver an exciting start to the year with these two dynamic fighters potentially locking horns in the Octagon. Stay tuned for official announcements from the UFC to confirm this electrifying matchup.
