Why does Belal Muhammad have the nickname “Remember the name?”

During a Q&A with Palestine in AmericaMuhammad discussed the inspiration behind his nickname and revealed that he wanted his nickname to be more realistic instead of something weird.

The 34-year-old also explained that he wants MMA fans to tune into his fights for his exciting style:

“You have guys who always have stupid nicknames like ‘crazy horse’ or something stupid. I didn’t want to come up with one. I wanted something real. I want to be remembered. I want that people remember the name. When my name is on the card, people are going to tune in because they know what type of fighter I am. They know I’m exciting and I’m going to bring a fight every time.

After a 1-2 promotional start to his career, Muhammad now finds himself undefeated in his last eight fights.

Belal Muhammad will look to live up to his moniker against Sean Brady at UFC 280

Belal Muhammad will be determined to produce another memorable performance when he takes on unbeaten and undefeated prospect Sean Brady in a marquee welterweight matchup at UFC 280 in Abu Dhabi.

Belal Muhammad battled his way to a unanimous decision victory the last time he faced a submission specialist in Demian Maia. Muhammad showed excellent defense and balance in this game. However, the fight was rather lackluster due to the respect he had for Maia’s Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

With that in mind, it will be interesting to see if Muhammad will be willing to commit Sean Brady to the field after a wrestling camp with Khabib Nurmagomedov, who will be in his corner.

Muhammad currently sits at No. 5 in the divisional rankings, while Sean Brady is ranked at No. 8. This is a crucial matchup for both welterweights and a statement performance from either man. could propel the winner directly into the title race.

UFC 280 will take place at the Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi on October 22. Belal Muhammad vs. Sean Brady should close out the preliminary card.
