Michael Page has heard all the criticism loud and clear that he doesn’t fight anyone good and is a ‘can crusher’ so to speak.
For Page, however, he views that as an actual compliment. To him, that means he is making them look like that, but assures that anyone can get it if they want it.
”Where I’m at now, I find it a bit of a compliment,” Page said (via MMA Mania). “Because we already know, people that truly understand MMA, they know these opponents, they know what they’ve gone through, they know their standard. And they still call them a can. That just means I’m making them look like that. It says I’m on the right track in terms of the fashion I’m winning in. Everyone keeps going on about this ‘crushing cans.’ And I’m going to start agreeing with you, and everyone ‘can’ get it.”
One person Michael Page hopes to fight is Douglas Lima. The two fought earlier this year where it was Lima who won by knockout yet Page had some success in the scrap.
So, “MVP” hopes that fight can happen again as soon as possible.
”I just find, for me, Lima’s response quite weird,” Page said. “It just says a lot about maybe where his heads at, in terms of he wanted to fight me before and then I came back quite quickly, I had a few fights and now he’s ‘not interested.’ Talks of him going up and this and that. Feels like he’s trying to distance himself as much as possible. Everybody else is what it is. I’m just going to keep fighting til he can’t get away from me. And I will get that, I will get that back. That’s the only thing that’s sitting on my record so I’m going to be reminded of you over and over again. So I’m coming back and it’s going to be a fun night that night.”
