On Monday, Bellator MMA announced a welterweight matchup between dynamic striker Michael Page and undefeated prospect Curtis Millender has officially been added to Bellator 133 in February.

Page (7-0), a multiple-time world kickboxing champion, is coming off a decision victory over UFC veteran Nah-Shon Burrell at Bellator 128 in October. Prior to win, the man known as ‘Venom’ rattled off six straight first round stoppages, including a 10-second knockout in his Bellator debut over Ryan Sanders at Bellator 93.

Millender (7-0), who will be making Bellator MMA debut, was last seen walking away with a first round TKO victory over James Chaney just 48 seconds into their fight in October. This marked just his second career stoppage victory.

Bellator 133 is currently scheduled to take place on February 27 at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut. The night will feature what Bellator calls a full “British Invasion” as Bellator Welterweight Champion Douglas Lima puts his title on the line against Nottingham native Paul Daley, while Emanuel Newton defends his strap against rising light heavyweight star and Daley’s fellow Englishmen Liam McGeary.

Here is how the rest of the card is shaping up:

  • Douglas Lima (26-5) vs. Paul Daley (35-13-2) – For Bellator MMA Welterweight Championship
  • Emanuel Newton (25-7-1) vs. Liam McGeary (9-0) – For Bellator MMA Light Heavyweight Championship
  • Bobby Lashley (12-2) vs. James Thompson (20-14)
  • Sokoudjou (16-12) vs. Linton Vassell (14-4)
  • Michael Page (7-0) vs. Curtis Millender (7-0)
