Nothing like good old real hate to hype a cage fight. Or maybe Richard Kiely is just annoying as hell. Usually Michael Page is the one getting under his opponent’s skin, but not today in Dublin.
Promoting Bellator 227 event on Sept. 27 at the 3ARENA in Dublin, Ireland, Page and Kiely expressed their feelings for one another. Venom clearly doesn’t care for Kiely and the Irishman knows it. MVP tried to ignore it, until Richard was just too big of a d**k about it.
The thumbs up right in the mug of Page was a low key epic asshole move from D**k. Page texting on his phone, maybe browsing Amazon or IG, and Keily puts his thumb right in his face. The thing is Page didn’t blink or even look up from his phone.
So of course Keily does it again. Still nothing. Venom stares down at his phone and just no sells Richard’s attempt at netting a reaction.
MVP even gave Keily a nice shoulder rub as a way of saying nice try. Good game. Nice effort. The MMA world was this close to Michael Page slapping Kiely on the butt and saying “way to hustle out there”.
Instead Rich aggressively peeled back the fingers of MVP right off his shoulders. Was Keily shook? Was Page shook? Who cares, because Michael Page then pushed the hell out of Richard Keily and nearly knocked him off stage.

Michael Page can’t afford back to back losses in Bellator. He could be done if gets upset by Richard Kiely in September. Now MVP just upped the stakes and the Fight Gods are pleased.
