Leon Edwards is prepared to move beyond Belal Muhammad and onto the remainder of his welterweight title rule.

Edwards shields his title against Muhammad in the headliner of UFC 304 on July 27 at the Center Live field in Manchester. The battle is quite a while really taking shape, with Muhammad constantly going after Edwards through the media, requiring his title shot. Well that is all there is to it's at last here, Edwards is similarly as invigorated, in light of the fact that he can at long last continue on toward other business.

"100%, the person has been an irritation via web-based entertainment for the longest," Edwards expressed Monday on The MMA Hour when gotten some information about his fervor for UFC 304. "So 100%. I've been attempting to battle Belal now for some time. I got requested [UFC] 300, I expressed yes to everybody. Three rivals, said OK. I even expressed, 'What might be said about Belal?' And they were like, 'No. [Laughs.]' It was anything but a choice.

"I was like, I'll battle whoever, since I realize the card is a particularly enormous card. It would have been perfect for my vocation. So I would battle whoever there is. Furthermore, after [Islam Makhachev, Shavkat Rakhmonov, and Khamzat Chimaev] said no, I was like, 'What might be said about Belal?' They didn't engage it. So what will be will be."

Edwards and Muhammad have some set of experiences as the two battled each other quite a while back at a Battle Night occasion in London. That session finished in sad conditions when an eye jab from Edwards delivered Muhammad unfit to keep, prompting a no-challenge. Muhammad campaigned for a prompt rematch, however rather Edwards went on his title run, asserting the belt and guarding it two times. In the mean time, Muhammad has won five in succession at welterweight and has constantly required his rematch, ensuring his own triumph and destroying Edwards every step of the way. In any case, Edwards doesn't see it.

"When has Belal could possibly do that to anyone?" Edwards expressed, snickering at Muhammad's garbage talk. "He's simply talking. I'll allow him to talk and allow him to make his little images and his little tweets, yet everybody realizes he ain't on my level. That is only current realities of it. He has moved along. So have I. There's levels to the game and I really accept I'm levels above him. Come July, that's what i'll show."

What's more, he plans to do as such in breathtaking style. In the event that there's been a thump on Edwards during his UFC vocation, it's the absence of completions. Edwards just has four completions of his 14 UFC triumphs, however "Rough" means to up that number come July.

"I really want a completion. I feel like anything shy of a completion is no sufficiently decent," Edwards said. "This poo this person chatted via online entertainment, the f*cking Tweets, the shirts, he merits it. He merits an ass-whooping. I feel like he will get his butt whooped. I've never lost a battle in the U.K. I've never lost on home turf. I carry that certainty with me, I bring the certainty of being a boss with me, and he's simply too simple to even think about hitting. He can further develop all he needs, he's too simple to even think about hitting. His head is in that general area. He's simply there and he will get hit and get hit a ton. I need to take him out."

Whenever that is finished, it's on to new business.

Still just 32 years of age, the No. 3 pound-for-pound warrior on the planet as indicated by the MMA Battling Worldwide Rankings says he is simply beginning.

"I feel like I move Belal — all the wrestling stage is somewhat going," Edwards said. "It was [Kamaru] Usman, then, at that point, it was Colby [Covington], then, at that point, it was him. ... Its remainder is strikers, which is beautiful. Get these grapplers out the way and simply break on with my profession. I feel like I have much more to do. I really feel I haven't sat idle yet and there's quite a lot more I need to achieve and do in this game. I'm engaged and driven and I can hardly stand by to achieve it."
