A win for Edwards is almost guaranteed to springboard him to a title shot. However, if Muhammad can become triumphant, he will make himself relevant in the conversation of a title shot as well. Also, this card has some other interesting fights as well. Misha Cirkunov and Ryan Spann will clash in a light-heavyweight co-main event.

Can Leon Edwards finally get a title shot?

He will look to prove that he has used his away time for good and can make an easy work of Muhammad. But ‘Remember The Name’ is determined to massacre those plans. Also, Edwards has previously fought against current champion Kamaru Usman at 2015. It was his last loss in the UFC. No doubt, he wants to right that wrong as soon as possible.
