A few hours ago, Belal Muhammad made it clear that he is ready for war, which will come in the UFC 263. Next Saturday, in an evening full of very good action, he will be measured against Demian Maia, one of the stars of the moment. For this reason, speaking with MMA Fighting, he made it clear that he will try to forget what happened with Leon Edwards in his last battle inside the cage.
To start, Muhammad He commented, “I was like, ‘Brother, we have to have a rematch.’ He was like, ‘If you don’t give me Colby Covington, I’ll have a rematch.’ I’m not going to sit there and make one of those fake videos of me trying to start a fight with him in a hotel. I’m like, ‘Okay, that makes sense.’ I’m looking at this guy like he’s an idiot. Your logic doesn’t make sense.
“If that makes sense then Masvidal hit you like shit in the back room, there’s no reason for you to do the fight, because he already hit you with a threesome and a soda. Honestly, it doesn’t make any sense to me, even to me. Me looking at it and being a fan and understanding the game, I understand why Leon wouldn’t take the fight. It will help you build your fan base, “highlighted the fighter.
Prepared for war
In addition, Belal indicated: «But of UFC, I would wait more if it wasn’t me, I would give someone better ranked than me, because there are other guys in the division willing to fight. For me, the immediate rematch made the most sense in the world, because I literally took the fight three weeks early when no one wanted to fight. I came from an injury with my cast and even so I took a step forward and accepted the fight.
“I called for that fight like I was calling Leon. He is one of the legends of the sport, one that I have always seen and studied. I always want to test myself against the best, and the last ones to beat him fought for the title. He’s got great name value, and he’s one of those guys where he’s a great test for the champion. If I can get over Demian, it will be a good test to fight against Kamaru Usman », concluded Belal Muhammad.
