Michael ‘Venom’ Page says referee Dan Miragliotta apologized for Bellator 227 behavior

Dan Miragliotta let his emotions get the better of him at Bellator 227, as the veteran referee called Michael ‘Venom’ Page a ‘piece of sh-t’ after his first-round knockout victory of Richard Kiely at 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland this past September.

Page later declared that Miragliotta wouldn’t be allowed to officiate any of his fights going forward but, after a recent friendly encounter with Miragliotta in New York, ‘MVP’ appears to have made amends with the referee.

Speaking on a recent edition of MMA Fighting’s Eurobash podcast, Page revealed that he and Miragliotta are now on good terms after the Muay Thai instructor apologized for his unprofessional behavior at Bellator 227.
