Bellator continues to stack-up its Japanese debut with the addition of a welterweight scrap between Michael Page and former UFC fighter Shinsho Anzai.
After four fights with the UFC, Anzai (11-3) was released from his contract earlier this year. The former middleweight King of Pancrase rebounded with a win over Yoichiro Sato at DEEP 91 Impact in September.

It’s been a big year for Page (16-1), who has competed four times in the past nine months. At Bellator London last month he picked up a first round TKO win over Gianni Melillo.
Bellator Japan (Bellator 237) takes place 29 December at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. Heavyweight legends Fedor Emelianenko and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson will square off in the main event.
