Bellator 216 will take place exclusively on DAZN and will be headlined by one of the most intense grudge matches in MMA history. On Saturday, Feb. 16, undefeated Michael "Venom" Page (13-0) will enter the Bellator cage against 58-fight professional Paul "Semtex" Daley (40-16-2) in a first-round fight of Bellator's Welterweight World Grand Prix. The co-main event is a rematch between two heavyweights who undoubtedly will go down in the sport's history books, when Mirko Cro Cop (37-11-2, 1 NC) makes his Bellator debut against Roy "Big Country" Nelson (23-16).
In addition, a No. 1 contender's bout to determine who will face newly crowned heavyweight kingpin Ryan Bader will pit Cheick Kongo (29-10-2) against undefeated, longtime former Bellator heavyweight champion Vitaly Minakov (21-0). An intriguing welterweight encounter between Yaroslav Amosov (20-0) and the always-exciting Erick Silva (20-9, 1 NC) is also official, as is the professional debut of multi-time taekwondo champion Valerie Loureda, when she meets Oklahoma's Colby Fletcher (1-2) in the main card opener.
