Michael Venom Page charges Richard Kiely as nothing greater than a loud-mouthed Conor McGregor impersonator forward of his conflict with the Irishman at Bellator Dublin.
Kiely welcomes MVP to his yard on Friday night time, promising to shock the battle world by inflicting defeat on one of Great Britain’s brightest stars.
MVP is aiming to bounce again after the primary loss of his professional profession and accepted the competition solely after an onslaught of taunts from Kiely.
‘Everyone has different strengths,’ he advised Metro.co.uk. ‘My power is having the ability to switch my skill into the cage, his power is having the ability to discuss his approach into the cage.
“I know that everyone – even in here – thinks that he’s gonna’ win…but he’s the one that’s in for a shock.” –@RichardKielyMMA

‘I really feel quite a bit of guys like him have seen the sample Conor McGregor has left and tried to replicate it. The distinction is, Conor McGregor may again up every little thing he stated.
‘He’s really genuinely a tremendous fighter. It’s not the identical, however everybody jumps on the bandwagon. The Irish are so quick-witted and so they love combating, however they will’t all battle.
‘Conor McGregor – amazing, Richard Kiely? Not so much. You can see by his kickboxing career he wasn’t an excellent fighter.
‘You can see from his MMA career, he’s not an excellent fighter. But, he has the power to discuss his approach right into a battle.’
Kiely is 3-1 in his MMA profession, whereas Page is 14-1 and recent off a formidable stint in Bellator’s welterweight grand prix.
‘I can’t even think about it,’ was Page’s response when requested what he’d do if he had been to lose to Kiely.
MVP, although, will not be involved by the potential hostility of a famously raucous Irish crowd. In reality, the British fighter would love the competition to go so long as potential.
‘If I could control exactly what I wanted to do, I would make it a very long night for him,’ he defined. ‘I’d embarrass him.
‘I need to be the person to put actuality into him. But, the likeliness is I land a well-time shot and he falls.
‘I might not get the chance, but I do want to punish him a little bit. That’s the evil facet of me.’
