Belal Muhammad thanked AEW star and UFC CM Punk veteran for his support
Belal Mohammed has been on a roll in the UFC. The 33-year-old welterweight hasn’t lost a single fight since January 2019 – 6 fights without defeat (1 without a match against Leon Edwards).
His rise saw him climb into the top 5 of the welterweight rankings. He’s probably one or two wins away from fighting for the title.
In a recent interview with an MMA reporter Helen Yee, AEW star CM Punk, who was once part of the UFC, has revealed the fighters he loves to watch.
The first of them was her boyfriend, Muhammad. Recognizing the rich vein of the form Muhammad is in now, Punk also praised his game on social media.
He was quoted as saying:
“I love watching Belal Muhammad fight. Actually that’s not true, I hate watching Belal fight because he’s a pal of mine – so it’s scary. I love to see him win, I think he’s on an incredible tear, and he’s maximizing the time he has. He’s using his social media 100% the right way. ”
CM Punk confident of Conor McGregor’s arrival in wrestling
CM Punk in a recent interview with ESPN SportsNation spoke about UFC’s biggest star, Conor McGregor, once coming into the wrestling world.
Citing the example of Floyd Mayweather doing the same thing a while back, Punk said:
“Often a lot of the sacrifice goes unnoticed. But that’s what it is. When [Floyd] Mayweather walked through and did a match at WrestleMania I’m sure we’ll end up seeing [Conor] McGregor is coming … [Ronda] Rousey was excellent when she came. The main thing is to make money. If you’re making money, technically you’re not doing anything wrong. [via Bloody Elbow]
McGregor is currently treating an ankle injury he sustained during his trilogy fight against Dustin Poirier at UFC 264.
