UFC Vegas 21: Leon Edwards vs. Belal Muhammad fight card, live stream & TV info.
Top-15 welterweights clash this weekend at UFC Vegas 21 when No. 3 contender Leon Edwards takes on No. 13 Belal Muhammad.
Edwards (18-3) is making his long-awaited return to the Octagon following a string of bad luck that has sidelined Englishman since July of 2019. Edwards was scheduled to face both Tyron Woodley and Khamzat Chimaev multiple times, however the Covid-19 pandemic has made it a rather frustrating past 20 months for the Englishman. Edwards last defeated former UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos via unanimous decision. A win here for Edwards should solidify his place as the next title challenger, but as we’ve seen in MMA, nothing is ever guaranteed.
Muhammad (18-3), while holding a similar overall record to Edwards, has yet to face the same level of competition in the UFC. Not to say that Muhammad can’t defeat Edwards, but it will certainly be his toughest test to date. The Chicago native has looked phenomenal as of late, winning eight of his last nine bouts, and takes this fight on a little over three weeks notice. Muhammad’s last win came at UFC 258 in February when he defeated Dhiego Lima via decision.
