Michael Venom Page made short work of Richard Kiely in the Bellator Dublin co-main event, finishing the fight in the first-round with a flying knee.
It was a pretty odd contest while it lasted.
After referee Dan Miragliotta paused the fight to caution Kiely after he flipped the bird to his opponent, the action was once again halted after Page – in a bizarre sequence – pretended to take a selfie from top position while landing ground-and-pound.
Deducting a point from the Englishman, the fight restarted and Page – with a renewed sense of urgency – did not take long to finish things.
Catching Kiely ducking, he unloaded a flying knee which connected perfectly, leaving The Face stumbling and Page already celebrating by the time the fight was declared to be finished.
JUMPING KNEE FINISH!
Michael "Venom" Page stops rival Richard Kiely in the very first round. An incredible win for MVP.

Taking to the mic directly afterwards, MVP called for a rematch against the only man to have bested him thus far in his career, Douglas Lima – who fights Rory MacDonald for the welterweight title next month.
