Leon Edwards on Belal Muhammad’s confidence

In a recent interview with Red Corner MMA, Leon Edwards shared his thoughts on Belal Muhammad, expressing confidence in his ability to dethrone him.

“Deluded, he’s talking a lot of * , so make sure you can back it up,” Edwards said as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com. “Like I said, he’s been off over a year. The way he talks is like he was winning the first fight, so a bit deluded.

But like I said, he best be ready. It’s going to be a long, hard, tough fight for him in Manchester. Like I said, the fight, Round 1 went my way comfortably, I was just getting started, and then the eye poke happened.

Obviously hurt him in the first round. I feel like he’ll just be too slow for me. Too slow, too predictable, too flat footed. So, let’s see”.
