In a long-awaited UFC debut, Michael “Venom” Page showcased his striking prowess and elusive footwork to secure a victory over Kevin Holland in a captivating showdown at UFC 299.


Despite not securing a highlight reel finish, Page mesmerized the audience with his lightning-fast strikes and evasive maneuvers, leaving Holland struggling to keep pace throughout the fight.


Reflecting on his debut, Page commented, 


“Honestly, it feels the same in terms of the caliber, how I feel inside but I think the UFC [nerves] got to me a little bit. Kevin’s just a tough guy. I’ve got a lot more work to do but this is where I’m supposed to be.”


Known for his flashy style, Page entertained fans with his trademark sideways stance and unleashed a barrage of strikes with precision and power, forcing Holland to grapple in an attempt to neutralize his offense.

As the bout progressed, Page's confidence soared, evident in his taunts and varied striking arsenal, including spinning back elbows and powerful right hands that kept Holland guessing.


Although Page may not have delivered the emphatic statement he desired, his victory marked a successful debut in the UFC, setting the stage for future exciting matchups in the welterweight division.


With this impressive win under his belt, Page is poised to tackle the challenges that lie ahead, as he navigates his way through the highly competitive UFC welterweight landscape.
