Belal Muhammad seems to be hyped up after his amazing victory over Stephen Thompson. Many currently consider this victory as his biggest achievement in his pro-MMA career. Following the victory, he jumped 5 ranks in the UFC welterweight rankings, making him the No.5 ranked welterweight in the organization.

Consequently, ‘Remember The Name’ has been looking for his next matchup and also a ‘sponsorship’. The 33-year-old has his eyes set on getting sponsorship from luxury watchmaker company; Rolex. The British-founded Swiss watch designer has been a status symbol of affluence since 1915.

Athletes like golf legend Tiger Woods, Roger Federer, and Phil Mickelson are a few names on their sponsored list. In addition to this, Rolex has a deep-rooted role in many sports. This might have attracted Belal to share a funny screen recording of his DMs with the official Rolex page on Instagram.

He also shared a video saying, “Yo, Rollie, Rolex. It’s your old boy ‘Bully B’ here. I’ve been hitting you up. No response yet, but I don’t know if you saw. Your boy is No. 5 in the world now. So, you know what that means. My wrist needs a little bit of ice. Just wanted to see if you wanted to throw a sponsorship this way.” 

Belal also shared his interest in working something out with Rolex. He said, “You got my phone number, email. Hit me up.”

Muhammad is currently on a 6 fight win streak. He last lost a fight in 2019 and has had a ‘No-Contest’ matchup with Leon Edwards in March 2021. He has been clearing the division from the ground up and seems unstoppable in the process. Naturally, he wants a shot at the title currently held by Kamaru Usman.

However, he has also been very vocal about fighting Colby Covington. Belal seems to despise the No.1 ranked welterweight and wants this grudge bout to happen as soon as possible. He even went on to state that he thinks about punching Colby in the face all the time.
