Bellator 281 results are in. Michael ‘Venom’ Page vs Logan Storley for the Welterweight title was the main event of the night. Storley ended up topping the judges score cards as this bout went the distance. The crowd at the O2 Arena began to boo the newly crowned Welterweight champion, due in large to the fact that he controlled MVP with wrestling that only assured control over his opponent but never threatened a submission or put his opponent in danger.
Lyoto Machida vs Fabian Edwards was the co-main event of the evening. This fight was the opposite of the main event. The pressure put on by Fabian Edwards had Machida unable to get his bearings. A smooth elbow when seperating from the clinch was all Edwards needed to drop Machida and quick few punches had Machida out cold in the first round.
