Mousasi wasn't alone in marquee success. Human highlight reel Michael "Venom" Page, now 31 years old, is no longer the 25-year old prospect who burst onto the scene six years ago. He's now 13-0 after defeating his biggest challenge in David Rickels after taking a year and a half off from MMA to pursue his boxing debut. 

Georgie Shore cast member Aaron Chalmers overcame early adversity to defeat his opponent Ash Griffiths via impressive guillotine choke in his Bellator debut.
