UFC welterweight, Belal Muhammad, is gearing up for the biggest fight of his pro career thus far on Saturday night. ‘Remember the Name’ Muhammad takes on Leon Edwards in his first main event booking after filling in for Khamzat Chimaev. Chiefly, ‘Borz’ came in to fight Leon multiple times but the UFC finally decided to move on from that match up after repeated cancellations.

‘Rocky’ Edwards makes his comeback after around two years of inactivity and he’ll defend his number three ranking. Belal Muhammad has proven that he’s a tried and tested commodity on a meaningful winning streak of his own.

Kamaru Usman has recently defended his title at UFC 258 against Gilbert Burns and will be on the sidelines for a while now. Moreover, he’s planning to rematch Jorge Masvidal after possibly coaching against ‘Gamebred’ on ‘The Ultimate Fighter’. However, given the way things have been going, Leon Edwards and Belal Muhammad will want to stamp their ticket next.

Stylistically, the match-up is extremely compelling when looking at the various looks that are on offer on the feet. There’s a unique nuance that both men bring to the table and fans are likely promised a five-round stand-up clinic. Not to mention, the high-stakes nature of the bout and personalities of those involved makes it a must-watch for UFC fans.
