Michael "Venom" Page will get his chance at avenging his previous loss to former Bellator welterweight champion Douglas Lima.
The promotion officially announced that Page and Lima are set to meet in a rematch that will headline Bellator 267 on October 1 from the SSE Arena, Wembley in London, England. The pair's first meeting went down back at Bellator 221 in May 2019 as part of the Bellator Welterweight World Grand Prix semi-finals where Lima was victorious via a highlight-reel second-round knockout.

Since that initial fight, Lima has gone just 1-2 in his three outings, losing his welterweight title in his last fight via a one-sided unanimous decision to Yaroslav Amosov at Bellator 260. Page has been on the opposite end of the spectrum since the loss to Lima, going 5-0 in his last five fights, most recently defeating Derek Anderson via a first-round TKO at Bellator 258.
