MICHAEL VENOM PAGES suffered heartbreak over a title night Fabian Edwards, Paul Daley won.

After five disappointing rounds, Page was defeated by Logan Storley of America for the interim Bellator Welterweight title.



Logan Storley beat Michael Venom Page

They fought for Bellator's interim welterweight title.

The Brit couple Daley (39) and Edwards (29), celebrated incredible stoppage wins at Wembley Arena.

However, headliner MVP was defeated by Storley, a grappler who had taken Yaroslav Amosov's place as full champion, and is still serving Ukraine.

Page started well and would land clean strikes. Page spent the last half of the five-minutes on the floor.

The fourth round was his most convincing, with flurries and strikes scoring while maintaining the action for long periods.

Storley, 29 years old, was able, in the final round to take Page, 35 down. He remained there until the end, and he controlled the bout.

Judges preferred grappiling to Page's infliction of little damage, as opposed to Page's more frequent but still eye-catching combinations.

Daley was fighting in his final 64-bout fight in his career that spanned over 19 decades. He received a hero's welcome earlier in the evening.

After dominating the first two rounds, Wendell Giacamo (27), threatened to ruin the party.

This was until Daley and the pair began to fight against each other in the cage.

Giacamo was left out of the count after a left hook missed the mark. His follow-up right hit the button, and Giacamo was left with no choice but to go for it.

It was a touching farewell for Daley in the place he began and ended his career.

Birmingham's Edwards won the chief support by defeating Lyoto Machida, an ex-UFC champion.

Edwards sent Machida reeling after he elbowed him before a left hook landed on his head.

The British middleweight champion was awarded his greatest victory to date when Ruthless Ground and Pound finished the job.

Edwards was joined by Leon, his brother and UFC welterweight champion.
