He's undefeated as a professional fighter at 7-0, as well as coming off the biggest win of his career at Bellator 128, but Michael Page WON'T be a part of Bellator's "British Invasion" this Friday night on Spike TV.

Due to an injury sustained late in his preparations for his fight with Curtis Millender, "Venom" is off the card for Bellator 134 in Uncasville, Connecticut, on February 27. During the MMA Hour, it was revealed that Page will be replaced with the 9-3 Brennan Ward, who will move up from the "Prelims" to take the fight, which will now be at middleweight.

Ward last competed for the promotion at Bellator 123, where he was knocked out by Tamdan "The Barn Cat" McCrory in just 21 seconds. Ward was looking to rebound from that performance in a preliminary bout against Jesse Juarez, but instead accepted Bellator's offer to move up to the main card.

As of press time, it is unknown whether or not Juarez will receive a replacement opponent or if his fight will be scratched from the event altogether.
