Bellator star Michael ‘Venom’ Page is known for his flashy striking and post-fight antics. His boxing debut did end in a little bit of controversy, though…

Mixed martial arts stars are flooding to boxing at the moment. Obviously, everyone heard about that whole Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather fight. Although it had little in the way of importance for rankings or title, MayMac has paved a new way for MMA stars.

Boxing champions and veterans have made solid transitions to MMA in recent times. Heather Hardy, who competes in tonight’s Bellator card, former UFC bantamweight champ Holly Holm are both former boxing champions.

It hasn’t always been that way, though, as guys like James Toney wanted one payday and out, regardless of how humiliating the result. Sound familiar? That’s exactly how Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather went, although ‘The Notorious’ was serious about continuing to compete as a boxer if he won.

Now it looks like everyone wants in on the boxing gig…

Viral MMA star Michael ‘Venom’ Page took a page out of McGregor’s book tonight…

Michael Page’s Boxing Debut

Competing on a much lower level card than MayMac, Michael Page made his boxing debut tonight. Obviously, If ‘Venom’ is serious about becoming a legitimate boxer, this is the way to do it.

Taking place in the UK and televised free on ‘Dave,’ Hayemaker Fight Night was fronted by ex-WBC champion David Haye.

Watch as Bellator star Michael Page nearly decapitates his opponent:

Also fighting on the card was Olympic super-heavyweight silver medalist Joe Joyce. He faced Ian Lewison, who by all accounts is no slouch at 12-3-1 going into the fight. Joyce, however, is more than your average debutant.

Teeing off from early on, Joyce developed a superb rhythm. By the time eighth round came along, Lewison was wearing the fight on his face.

Watch as the corner throw in the towel to rescue Lewison:

Finally in tonight’s recap of the UK event, Scottish champion and medal winner Willy ‘Braveheart’ Hutchinson fought Atila Nagy. 4 x 3 minutes was the limit on this fight, but it didn’t need half that time.

Watch as Hutchinson gets it done:
