Recently on The MMA Hour, Michael Page shared his thoughts on fighting Ian Machado Garry.

“Just looking at the rankings, I think one that makes the most sense would be Ian [Machado] Garry,” Page said, as quoted by mmafighting.com. “Considering he thought I wasn’t going to get past Kevin.

... There was an interview he did, I’m not sure on what, they asked him his views on me, he was like, ‘Who is he fighting? Oh he’s not going to beat Kevin. No way he gets past Kevin.’ Very dismissive. Which is fine.

People ask me about my views, everyone is entitle to their opinion. There’s no need to be angry about it, but now I’ve gotten past and maybe you could stop me?”.

“In the U.K.

as well, it’s perfect. That would be a lot of noise there, and I think it’s a good fight. I think he’s ranked seventh, seven is my lucky number. He’s a great fighter, again, no need to be negative towards anybody.

He’s sparked a lot of emotional reactions from a lot of people, from his personality, his performances, he’s doing good. But I definitely believe I can beat him, so why not?”.
