Remember the Name: Belal Muhammad, UFC Fighter

Muhammad earned his call to UFC by dominating in the smaller fighting circuits. He was 9-0 before he was notified about his opportunity at a more professional level, but he was not surprised. He fought five fights at Hoosier Fight Club in Indiana, two for Bellator MMA — a California-based MMA promotion — and three for Titan FC, a Florida-based MMA promotion. The Palestinian fighter expected the call from the UFC after he defeated former UFC fighter Steven Carl by TKO to win the Titan FC welterweight championship in 2016.
