Page, who secured a unanimous decision win over Ross Houston last time out in October 2020, will seek to take one step closer to a welterweight title shot when he takes on Anderson (17-3), the man he was previously scheduled to face back in 2017.

An injury forced Page to withdraw four years ago with the two set to now meet on a stacked card at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Connecticut.

Page has racked up four straight wins since his KO defeat to Douglas Lima in February 2019, his only MMA loss to date in 19 fights.

Next month’s card is headlined by Juan Archuleta vs Sergio Pettis with the Spaniard’s bantamweight title on the line.

Also in bantamweight action, Ireland’s James Gallagher will look to take a step closer to a title shot of his own against Patrick Mix.

Also on the card, Yoel Romero and Anthony Johnson make their Bellator debuts as they collide in light heavyweight grand prix action.
