Belal Muhammad Talks Losing Out on Leon Edwards Rematch

Last updated

When Leon Edwards made his UFC return back on March 13, he wasn’t expecting for the fight to end via a no contest. Unfortunately, when Belal Muhammad was unable to continue due to an accidental eye poke? That was the case.

In a massive shock, Nate Diaz will be returning to the UFC to face the aforementioned Leon Edwards. Diaz announced the news earlier this week, saying that he is coming into the Welterweight division to take on the Englishman.

’Check me out may 15th I’ll be headlining #ufc262 in Houston, Texas’ Nate Diaz wrote on Twitter. ‘It’ll also have the new UFC lightweight title fight on the card. I need people to know these guys are they’ve been working very hard and I can’t wait to see who gets my old crown. I’ll see you guys there!’
