‘I came here on a business trip’
Logan Storley has a single factor on his brain – the Bellator welterweight interim championship.
Storley is on a mission to generate his 1st title less than a key marketing at Friday’s Bellator 280 in London. But to reach that, he will have to get past very long-time contender Michael Web site, as properly as Page’s pre-battle antics that occur with each and every fight he’s in.
Website page (20-1 MMA, 16-1 BMMA) is notorious for trash chatting and being a showman all through his job. Storley (13-1 MMA, 8-1 BMMA) is not also common dealing with these kinds of opponents, but irrespective, the 29-calendar year-aged will not allow the out-of-cage factors distract him from the activity at hand.
“I guess Justin Buckley talked a really a little trash to me, but aside from that, that’s about it truly,” Storley explained to MMA Junkie Radio. “I guess I never really treatment. I do not get far too wrapped up in it. At the conclusion of the working day, I arrived listed here on a business excursion. It’s not personalized to me. None of this is.
“I never disrespect or loathe anybody that I’m heading to struggle. At the close of the working day, we’re the two prize fighters fighting for revenue, and I’m heading to do my occupation on Friday, and I’m going to go back again to the United Sates and be champ and appreciate my lifetime. I get it. You have to promote the struggle a very little bit, but it does not do significantly for me individually.”

Storley is filling in for winner Yaroslav Amosov, who withdrew from the title fight from Webpage. Amosov, a indigenous of Ukraine, has opted to continue to be in his dwelling state and be portion of the resistance versus Russia’s war.
Storley is refreshing off a large win more than Neiman Gracie at Bellator 274, which served as the promotion’s first 5-round, non-title headliner. The standout wrestler’s lone decline came at the palms of Amosov.
In the meantime, Site has won 6 fights in a row due to the fact suffering his initial-occupation decline to Lima in the Bellator grand prix semifinals in May perhaps 2019. He was capable to avenge his knockout reduction to Lima in his most latest outing previous October when he edged him out at Bellator 267 in London.
