Belal Muhammad ended the year smoothly by securing a comfortable win over the #5 welterweight Stephen Thompson. Meanwhile, Muhammad himself broke into the upper echelon of the 170 pounds division, as he is the new #5 of the division. At present, ‘Remember The Name’ has all the right reasons to be merry during the holidays season. But this time, ‘Bully B’ wished everyone in a different tone.

In the video, retired UFC lightweight superstar Khabib Nurmagomedov pours out his brutally honest opinion on Christmas. We can hear him say, “To be honest, I don’t believe Santa Claus. Maybe I never see him. That’s why maybe, you know. I don’t know. To be honest, I don’t believe this.”

Apart from his thrilling fights and supreme performances, MMA fans know ‘The Eagle’ for his broken English and the unintentional humor that stems out of it. Sometimes, the former champion leaves his fans in splits with his well-timed jokes. Just like his remarkable “Hey Sunglasses” monologue against Tony Ferguson at a press conference.

What’s ahead for Belal Muhammad?

Post his win over ‘Wonderboy’, Belal Muhammad has leapfrogged over other elite welterweights to become the new #5 in the division. Meanwhile, ‘Remember The Name’ has attacked all fronts as he demanded a title fight against the reigning champion Kamaru Usman.
