Michael Page Destroys Stand-In Opponent With Vicious Overhand Right in Bellator
Michael Page completely wiped out Giovanni Melillo with a huge right hand at Bellator in London.
"Venom" showed little respect or regard for his Italian stand-in opponent in scoring a devastating first-round knockout at Wembley Arena.
Melillo was a late replacement for Derek Anderson, and he must wish he didn't bother stepping in after this.
Page dominated the short fight and finished his man off in double-quick time in the welterweight clash.
