After his impressive win against Stephen Thompson at UFC Vegas 45, Belal Muhammad called out Leon Edwards for a rematch. The last time these two fought, Belal was hit by an accidental eye poke that almost ruined his eyesight, the fighter was declared as No contest, and Belal wants to have a piece of Edwards before he face the champ, Kamaru Usman for the title.
Sadly enough he didn’t get any response from Leon, but he found an opponent for himself in Khamzat Chimaev. Khamzat has been pretty dominant since the beginning of his career, and he challenged literally everyone in the UFC. His last performance against Li Jingliang was scary as hell, and nobody was stepping up to face him.
Just when he thought nobody would face him, Neil Magny and Belal replied to his call-out, and things got pretty heated between Khamzat and Belal. Muhammad tagged Dana White in a Twitter post to make this fight official, and Khamzat was more than prepared to demolish Muhammad.
These two went on an insane back and forth on Twitter, and here’s everything these two had to say bout each other.
Here’s the crazy Twitter war between Khamzat Chimaev and Belal Muhammad
Belal also pointed out that he doesn’t care if Khamzat is ranked below him, Khamzat brings in a lot of hype and he is a real hot prospect for the title. Belal wants to steal his spotlight away by beating him fair and square inside the octagon.
