  1. The guy is an absolutely well rounded mixed martial artist. Training with Khabibs team has really elevated what was already a monster of a man. And neew Inshallah

  2. His business with Leon must be why they are considering him fighting for the belt. He has 10 wins in his last 12 fights with 8 decisions and no first round finish. Compare this to Khamzat who has 12 wins in his last 12 figths, 11finishes of which 8 were first round finishes. Considering Belal above Khamzat is pure insanity.

  3. Remember the decision paying fools for nice comments about him ? I can’t believe what I’m reading!! Get a finish already belal!! You put me to sleep every time , that dude had 1 arm basically and you still couldn’t put him away.. going to need to do a lot more if you fight Colby or Leon just saying

  4. Fasting WORKS ! First IZZY talking about his parents fasting for him and then Belal mentioning his mentality improving with Ramadan 🙏

  5. I met a Palestinian mma fighter outside the mosque and I told him you know there’s a Palestinian in the UFC and he was like, yeah but he sucks. I was like I don’t think he’s that bad bro.
