Neiman Gracie wants a piece of “MVP.”
The former Bellator title challenger called out Michael Page for a five-round main event following Page’s latest win at Friday’s Bellator 267 event in London. Page defeated Douglas Lima via split decision to avenge his only career defeat.
Gracie took to Twitter shortly after the card to state his interest in the fight.
“Me vs. Michael Page next five-round main event, but we don’t need five rounds. I’m going to finish you in the first round.”

Michael Page prefers Douglas Lima trilogy over title shot: ‘It’s a belt, who cares?’

Gracie recently fought at Bellator 266 on Sept. 18 where he scored a first-round TKO win over Mark Lemminger in the main card. It was his first career TKO/KO win and his jump back to the winning track, having lost to Jason Jackson back in April.
Page said post-fight he plans on pushing for a trilogy bout with Lima rather than getting a title shot. He had no mention of a potential bout with Gracie.
