Palestinian MMA Fighter Belal Muhammad Earns Major Victory Against Gilbert Burns In UFC Championship

Standing tall with pride was Palestinian-American mixed martial artist Belal Muhammad after his major victory against Gilbert Burns in the UFC 288 Welterweight event. It was a special moment for Muhammed which he embraced by kneeling down on the ground in a special prayer. In that moment, he gave an immediate nod to his Palestinian heritage and Muslim identity.

His journey with MMA began way back in 2012 and since then, he has been making a name for himself in the world of MMA. Today, Muhammad is ranked third in the UFC Welterweight rankings, almost nearing the number one position. Continuing his impressive career, next up, the UFC champion will face the winner of the Leon Edwards vs. Colby Covington fight and get a shot at nabbing the UFC Welterweight title. If he wins the title, he’ll be the champion of his weight class in the world of UFC.
