Note: I wrote this piece for Cage Pages about Pokemon Go and MMA
Pokemon Go is the latest app that sweeping the nation and everyone is playing, even mixed martial artists.
If you know someone with a smartphone, chances are they playing Pokemon Go.
Michael “Venom” Page made headlines during Bellator 158 when he caught Evanglista “Cyborg” Santos with a flying knee in the second round.
It was a beautiful knee that sent Santos to the canvas and gave Page the win. “MVP” as he is known to fans, is now 7-0 in the Bellator cage (11-0) overall.
As he celebrated his win, Page donned a red hat – which had a pokeball on the front. He then tossed a toy pokeball in Santos’ direction.
Although Page didn’t “catch” Santos in his pokeball – Page missed him entirely – it was an interesting way to celebrate a win.
