The Ultimate Fighting Championship continues to roll along with UFC Vegas 21 from the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday night. MyMMANews will have your UFC Vegas 21 results here.
Edwards was originally scheduled to meet Khamzat Chimaev inside the octagon but the fight fell through on multiple occasions which allowed for Muhammad to step up. Edwards has not competed professionally since July 2019 where he earned a unanimous decision win over former UFC lightweight champion Rafael Dos Anjos.
Muhammad is making a quick turnaround after defeating Dhiego Lima just last month. With a win tonight, Muhammad said he would like to fight Colby “Chaos” Covington.
