UK MMA: Michael Page The Next Anderson Silva?

I know that’s a bold statement to compare a guy who only has one mixed martial arts fight on record to the longtime UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva. But after watching his first round spinning head kick win over Ben Dishman at UCMMA 26 “The Real Deal” the English fighter shows some distinct similarities to the Spider.

If you have any more information (kickboxing, history…) on this guy, please put it in the comments.


  1. Tornado kick FTW<3

  2. Damn, that was entertaining. I dont think he punches as hard as Anderson Silva but he sure is trying to act like him.

  3. Michael is not just a good kickboxer he is THE Kickboxer, just youtube his name and you'll find many videos examples of his abilities as a fighter. He's a clever guy and will do the training to take MMA in the UK up a level. Anthjony Petis kick off the cage is nothing compared to what this guy can do.

    Sure he can kickbox. But he was in there with also a relative newcomer. Ben Dishman was telegraphing his take downs. Anderson Silva he is not. Lets see how he handles being taken down. Give him some real challenges and then I would start to make comparisons.

  6. Not Anderson Silva yet, but a fine start to what could be a fruitful career.

Speak Your Mind
