Bellator 82 Update: Shawn Bunch Has Opponent, Michael Page No Longer Competing

It appears Michael Page will not be bringing his “Anderson Silva-like” talents to Bellator in November.

According to a report by Sherdog, Page has been removed from the planned November 30 Bellator 82 event in Mount Pleasant, Michigan. Page (4-0) recently earned a victory over Haitham Tantawy at Super Fight League 7 in impressive fashion. No reason was given for his exit.

Also, the same report states that Shawn Bunch will make his debut against Chad Coon.

Bunch is a well-decorated amateur wrestler, who won titles at both the U.S. National and Pan-American games. Coon is 0-1 in his MMA career.

    gotta say Sean bunch should go back to wrestling. Coon controlled bunch on
    everything except takedowns and they still gave the match to Bunch. coon went to touch gloves and bunch took himhim down. to head butts by bunch that werent called , and bunch didn’t even tryeith to pass gaurd, he just laid there. Coon eas hitting elbows from bottom attempting arm bars and controlled bunch where ref stood them up in every round. Coon also hit with kicks and flying knee while standing. It was a shame buch won.
