Belal Muhammad has emerged as one of the leading fighters in the UFC welterweight division. He has gone toe to toe with some of the most dangerous fighters on the roster and has defeated them all to make his way into the top 5. After dominating Stephen Thompson, ‘Bully B’ wants to revisit the past and get back at Leon Edwards for that nasty eye poke at UFC Fight Night in March.

In a quick chat with ESPN, ‘Remember the Name’ took a shot at ‘Rocky’, saying, “I want to just stay active because I mean, obviously, Leon’s gonna sit there and wait on the sidelines and I don’t know if he got promised the title fight already or blah, whatever.”

But dude’s just not responding to anything, dude’s sustaining like witness protection not talking to nobody. I don’t know if they’ve got internet in London. But he’s acting like he don’t watch fights.”

“But, uh, putting that fight on, I think that opened a lot of these guys’ eyes and for sure a lot of these guys are not going to want to answer that call if Dana texts them or calls,” Muhammad continued.

‘Remember The Name’ and ‘Rocky’ locked horns earlier this year at the main event of UFC Fight Night: Edwards vs. Muhammad. Unfortunately, Muhammad could not continue the fight as Edwards unintentionally poked his right eye at the start of the 2nd round.

“Masvidal’s been saying that he wants, uh, whatever is going to get him to the title shot. Well, I am right above Masvidal and I just beat two guys that beat Masvidal. So, come and get those wins back by beating me. That’s a good fight. I think that one makes sense,” Muhammad said.

However, ‘Remember The Name’ isn’t limiting himself to only one name. He also reminded ‘Chaos’ that he is available to fight whenever the #1 contender is accessible. “If Colby ever comes out, I’ve been calling him out for like 10 years. If he ever wants to fight, I’ll definitely take that one. Like, I am ready to fight all these guys,” he said.
