UFC Commentator Jon Anik Hints at Belal Muhammad Receiving Title Shot at UFC 304

Belal Muhammad could be gearing up to challenge Leon Edwards for the welterweight title at UFC 304.

UFC 304 will mark the promotion’s return to Manchester, England, for the first time since 2016. Edwards, the reigning welterweight champ and a Birmingham, England, native, will most likely be a part of the card. Longtime UFC commentator Jon Anik has now hinted at Muhammad finally getting his much-awaited title shot against Edwards at UFC 304 on July 27.

“Flight booked for Manchester, England. See you there, [Belal Muhammad],” Anik wrote x (Formerly known as Twitter).

Muhammad is currently undefeated in 10 Ultimate Fighting Championship outings, including a no contest against Leon Edwards due to an accidental eye poke. While “Remember the Name” was initially expected to challenge Edwards at UFC 296 in December 2023, that shot instead went to Colby Covington, who went on register his third failed title bid. Muhammad's name was also missing from a list of three opponents reportedly offered to Edwards for UFC 300 in April. Anik had also previously made a case for Muhammad to receive his long overdue title shot.

Meanwhile, Edwards hasn’t lost a fight since 2015 and has successfully defended his 170-pound throne twice thus far.
