Yaroslav Amosov’s first title defense is official.

After Scott Coker told MMA Junkie in a recent interview that Amosov will be facing Michael Page in London, the promotion officially announced the fight Monday morning.

Amosov (26-0 MMA, 7-0 BMMA) puts his welterweight title on the line against Page (20-1 MMA, 16-1 BMMA) in the main event of Bellator London, which takes place Friday, May 13 at The SSE Arena, Wembley.

Amosov captured the promotion’s 170-pound title when he dominated Douglas Lima at Bellator 260 in June. Unbeaten in his pro MMA career, the 28-year-old Ukrainian combat sambo champion has finished 19 of his 26 pro wins and will look to notch his first title defense against the streaking Page on enemy territory.

Since suffering his first-career loss to Lima in the Bellator grand prix semifinals in May 2019, “MVP” has won six straight. He was able to avenge his knockout loss to Lima in his most recent outing in October. when he edged him out at Bellator 267 in London.
