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 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.
These two had a pretty ugly Twitter war and it looked like they can’t wait to get their hands on each other. After receiving no official statement from the UFC, Chimaev moved on to the next target, Gilbert Burns. These two were calling each other out for a long time, and they finally agreed to fight each other in Instagram Dm.

Belal is obviously looking for big fights, and Burns stealing away his opponent is making him jealous. He posted a poster of this fight, and wrote, “Hey Gilbert Burns stay away from my meal.. Khamzat Chimaev what happened we had a good thing goin thought you had trigger fingers not Twitter fingers.”
Khamzat also asked Dana to give him two fights in one night, maybe he can take on both Belal and Gilbert, and prove once in for all that he is the most dangerous man alive.
