UFC top welterweight Leon Edwards is confident that winning the fight against Belal Muhammad at the upcoming UFC Fight Night 187 tournament will allow him to fight for the championship at the end of this year.
“Last year disappointed me. I need to keep my main goal in mind. My main goal is to become world champion.
If you fight after fight, then you do not improve so quickly, because you are always preparing for a specific opponent. I’ve used the last year and a half to improve my skills and mental health. I feel great and I am eager to return to the octagon.
During the training camp, I watched Muhammad’s battles. He’s a good, tough opponent. He comes back after a great victory won a month ago, but I believe that I am better than him. No matter how this fight turns out, I am sure that I am better. The UFC will not be able to ignore the winner. If all goes according to plan, I will be the champion at the end of the year, “ Leon Edwards told the UFC official website.
