Will Belal Muhammad take on Leon Edwards at UFC 300?

UFC 300 is undoubtedly the most awaited event for the MMA fans this year. However, the fans are disappointed with the UFC for delaying the announcement of the main card fights for such a massive event. There is a possibility that the fans might get to see the welterweight champion in action. Leon Edwards dominated his performance at UFC 296, where he took on Colby Covington. After successfully defending his title against “Chaos” it seems “Rocky” might just have to face his next challenger at UFC 300.

Number two-ranked Belal Muhammad might be his opponent after his last performance. ‘Remember the name’ was last seen inside the Octagon at UFC 288 when he took on Gilbert Burns. He won the fight via decision, thus staking his claim as the number one contender. As fans desperately wait for the announcement of the big fights.
