UFC welterweight champ Leon Edwards is set to defend his title against Belal Muhammad at the UFC 304 on July 27 at Co-op Live Arena Manchester, England. Before his title defense, Leon Edwards made a sensational statement about a potential fight between him and “The Notorious” Conor McGregor, who will return to the Octagon after three years at UFC 303. The former two-division World Champion will face Michael Chandler in the main event on June 29 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Conor McGregor fought Dustin Poirier in his last fight where he badly injured his leg due to which he remained out of the action. But, finally he is returning to the cage to fight at 170lbs.

Before the fight, in a brief interaction with Duelbits, Conor expresses his desire to fight the champion of the fight between Leon and Belal.

”Look at the welterweight picture, which is the next belt, my next weight. The welterweight picture. Leon Edwards, Nate Diaz almost knocked him out. Had him out on his feet. If that fight was going on, Leon is unconscious. So, also, [Donald] Cerrone went the distance with him. So, I’m looking at all these belts.”
