UFC welterweight champion (up to 77,1 kg), Leon edwards 99,9% have defined their next step as category champion: a duel against Belal Muhammad | at UFC 304, which marks the organization's return to Manchester, England, in July. At least that's what Dave Lovell, the Brit's main coach, says.

In an interview with the 'talkSport' portal, Lovell regretted the fact that Edwards was unable to play in the UFC 300, guaranteed the pupil's presence at the event in England and stated that, although it has not yet been defined, Belal Muhammad | has a 99,9% chance of being the next challenger for the belt.

“The UFC is coming here in July and there is no doubt that Leon (Edwards) will be on that bill. Unfortunately he didn't fight in the UFC 300 for some reason. The guys who offered it, Shavkat (Rakhmonov), Khamzat (Chimaev), Islam (Makhachev) were all fasting, but we were ready. It is what it is. There is a large Muslim contingent in Manchester, so I think it will be Belal (Muhammad). It’s not defined, but I think there’s a 99% chance that it’s Belal,” said the coach.

If confirmed, the title fight between Leon edwards e Belal Muhammad | will mark the reunion and a kind of 'stubborn fight' between the two, who faced each other in March 2021. At the time, the fight was ended without result due to an accidental finger punch by the Brit in the eye of the North American of Palestinian descent , who was unable to continue the fight.
