Leon Edwards on Belal Muhammad

Recently on The MMA Hour, Leon Edwards explained why he thinks Belal Muhammad is an easy opponent.

“When has Belal ever did that to anybody?” Edwards said, as quoted by mmafighting.com. “He’s just talking. I’ll let him talk and let him make his little memes and his little tweets, but everyone knows he ain’t on my level.

That’s just the facts of it. He has improved. So have I. There’s levels to the game and I truly believe I’m levels above him. Come July, I’ll show that”.

Leon Edwards wants a finish

“I need a finish.

I feel like anything short of a finish is no good enough, all this shit this guy talked on social media, the * Tweets, the t-shirts, he deserves it. He deserves an ass-whooping. I feel like he’s going to get his ass whooped.

I’ve never lost a fight in the U.K. I’ve never lost on home turf. I bring that confidence with me, I bring the confidence of being a champion with me, and he’s just too easy to hit. He can improve all he wants, he’s too easy to hit.

His head is right there. He’s just there and he’s going to get hit and get hit a lot. I want to take him out”.
