Edwards accidentally poked Muhammad in the eye and the latter fighter was quite injured. Thus, the referee Dean Herb ended the fight in a no contest. Muhammad was disappointed because it was his first UFC main event and it ended uncertainly. But after this incident, he fought Demian Maia and Stephen Thompson and won both bouts. So his spirits are quite high.
