Legacy Champ Damacio Page Has a Job To Do and He’s Going To Do It

Heading into 2014, flyweight veteran Damacio Page was looking to get back on track after losing five of six bouts and getting released by the UFC.

During that stretch, Page’s lone win came with Legacy FC, so it’s no surprise that in signing with the promotion as a full-time fighter, he’d keep to his winning ways, picking up three straight victories last year along with the promotion’s 125-pound title.

“I was pretty satisfied, but at the same time, if you’re not evolving you’re not bettering yourself,” Page told MMAWeekly.com. “While I’m not completely satisfied, I’m content with what I did last year.

“I just want to stay on the same track I was on last year and carry on the winning.”

After winning the Legacy FC 125-pound title last October, Page (19-9) will have his first fight of 2015 as part of the joint RFA vs. Legacy FC show this Friday in Robinsonville, Miss., against Alexandre Pantjoa for an AXS TV superfight title in the evening’s main event.

“A fight’s a fight, and I’ll fight whoever,” said Page of representing the Legacy FC versus the RFA. “I’m going out there to do my job. I don’t put emotions or anything into it, I’m just going out there to fight.

“(Pantoja is) a great opponent, a great athlete, but just another stepping stone to where I need to get. I’m going to do what I do best. I’m not focused on what he’s going to do, but do what I do best and be aggressive.”

While Page doesn’t care who he fights, he does have an idea of where he’d like to fight before the end of the year.

“My goal is to fight in the UFC again,” said Page. “If it happens, it happens; if it doesn’t, we’ll talk about (what’s next) after the fight. For now, I’ve got a job to do and I’m going to do it. I’m not going to worry about anything else but my job.”
