UFC Welterweight Predicts Tough Times For Leon Edwards; Michael Chandler Responds To Online Criticism

6 months ago By Jhon Woug

In the UFC, fighters are also fighting in the online world of social media. New events in the MMA world display how fighters speak out. Belal Muhammad swiped at Leon Edwards, and Michael Chandler struck back against online critics. Paul Felder also talked about the topic, sharing his thoughts on trying to win two titles in the UFC.

Belal Muhammad’s Bold Prediction for Leon Edwards:

Muhammad thinks that Leon Edwards, who has beaten Kamaru Usman and Colby Covington in the past, is the hardest challenge for the UFC welterweight champion now.

After being a helper for Edwards when he fought against Covington, Muhammad is ready to take on his own challenge. The 35-year-old-year-old who hasn’t lost in 10 fights right now, used social media to say he was sure about how a possible fight with Edwards would go.

Muhammad’s guesses are as brave as his way of fighting. Using Twitter (now called X), he bravely stated his goal to beat Edwards in the second round. The fighter’s confident attitude doesn’t bother him. He went on to say, “He will suffer.”

This brave statement shows how sure Muhammad is. It also starts a possible fight that could pique interest in the welterweight group.

Michael Chandler’s Frustration and Online Backlash:

Meanwhile, Michael Chandler, who is always active, gets stuck in a network of online criticism. It’s very clear that Chandler is annoyed. He uses X to tell people how frustrated he feels because his fight with Conor McGregor has been postponed. McGregor’s boast of having the “biggest return in fight sports ever” makes this event more exciting.

Chandler’s online rant got people talking, and fans criticised it.

Chandler fought back at the troll, saying that simply tweeting criticism doesn’t lessen his focus or drive.

Paul Felder’s Take on Double Championships:

In the middle of online fighting and name-calling, Paul Felder, who is also known as ‘Irish Dragon’, spoke up with a point that agrees with people in regular sports. Felder talked about the continuing issue of fighters trying to become double champions. He didn’t like how things were going now.

On the UFC 296 Round-Up show with Michael Chiesa, Felder talked about Islam Makhachev’s goal to become a two-division champion. Makhachev had recently talked about his wish to fight Leon Edwards for the welterweight championship.

Felder’s point is clear and easy to understand. He says that fighters should first control their own divisions before moving into areas with different weight classes. feeling shows days when fighters had to prove themselves as top champions in their weight class before looking for titles in other classes.

Felder is clearly upset when he looks at the current situation at the UFC. He highlights McGregor as a special case. McGregor’s two-time championship win was great, but it seems to have started a habit that Felder doesn’t like in the world today.

The current state of the UFC’s welterweight division is an interesting combination of confidence, anger, and old ideas. Belal Muhammad’s brave guesses make future fights in division even more interesting. Michael Chandler’s anger and reaction to internet critics show the emotional rollercoaster that fighters go through outside of the ring.

Paul Felder’s view on double titles makes us think about how important it is for fighters to be the best in their original weight class. As the MMA world keeps changing, stories help make up a continuing story. This shapes what fans want to hear about it. In a sport where how you act is just as important as your fighting skills, the meeting of social media and old-fashioned fight values creates an exciting place. This keeps fans watching attentively for what will happen next in the UFC’s story.
