What has Page said about his fight?

“For me, I say the stakes are the same. The belt is the cherry on top, so why would I change anything for the cherry?” Page told BBC Sport.

“If the cherry drops off, the cake is still amazing, so every time I’ve got that cake, it’s based on me being myself. I’m always going to be me.”

Speaking about his opponent, he added: “He’s going to try and make the fight a bit slower, a bit uglier, but I can still cause a lot of damage in that time and I’ll still find that win.

“He’s an exceptional wrestler. There’s certain people that are one dimensional and that dimension is so good, even though you know what they’re going to do, it’s hard to stop. But it’s the same with my striking.

“I can say I know he’s going to shoot for my legs but he’s damn good at it so I need to be on point.”
