MMA: Bellator 221-Lima vs Page Jerry Lai-USA TODAY Sports

The Bellator 221 co-main event between Douglas Lima and Michael ‘Venom’ Page did not disappoint.

Page, who was undefeated heading into last night’s Bellator welterweight grand prix, was knocked out by a lunging uppercut after Lima floored him with a leg kick.

What makes the knockout so special is that Lima was stunned just moments before landing the finishing blow, as ‘MVP’ landed a nice right hand on Lima before getting sparked out in the middle of the cage.

Lima’s stunning KO caught the attention of several fighters (and promoters) on Twitter; check out their reactions below.

With the win Lima, the former two-time Bellator welterweight champion, will advance to the grand prix final against the winner of the upcoming bout between defending champ Rory MacDonald and BJJ ace Neiman Gracie.

Bellator 222, which is expected to feature MacDonald vs. Gracie in the co-main event, takes place next month, June 14 at Madison Square Garden, New York.
