Belal Muhammad trolls Ali Abdelaziz! The three top light heavyweights in the UFC right now, according to Ali Abdelaziz, will be no match for Kamaru Usman. In his opinion, Leon Edwards will be a more difficult opponent for his client than Jiri Prochazka, the current UFC light heavyweight champion.
He took to Twitter wherein he stated, “I just rewatched the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship, I believe @USMAN84kg will beat Jiri, Jan and Glover. Not talking trash, but this is real”
Usman is managed by Abdelaziz, the founder of Dominance MMA Management. He is without a doubt the most well-known manager in the MMA scene, mostly due to the fact that he keeps himself out there. Rarely does another manager of a fighter, outside him, criticize his opponent on an almost regular basis. Not to mention, there is speculation that Ali tweets from his fighter’s account.

Belal responds to the said tweet, to which he replied, “I’m just kidding I think he needs to beat belal first (This is also Ali I forgot my login.)” He is making a reference to the fact that Ali logs in to the fighter’s account and jokingly says that he takes the tweet back of Usman moving up instead he needs to fight Belal.
On January 19, 2019, Muhammad and Geoff Neal squared off at UFC Fight Night 143. He was defeated in the fight by a consensus vote. Since then he is one a winning streak. Belal Khamzat Chimaev recently urged him not to carry the Palestinian flag to fights, and Muhammad responded. Muhammad has been eagerly pursuing a bout battle against Chiamev and has called him out on multiple occasions.
When Kamaru Usman rematches Leon Edwards at UFC 278 from Salt Lake City on Aug. 20, his welterweight title will be on the line. The Utah Jazz’s home arena, Vivint Arena, will host the forthcoming pay-per-view event, which the UFC formally confirmed on Monday. There are now 12 fights scheduled for the event.
It is unknown what sequence the bouts will be in officially. Usman and Edwards first fought in 2015, and now they square off in the main event. Usman was awarded a unanimous victory that evening. Before becoming undefeated in his last 10 fights, it was Edwards’ final taste of loss.
