(Video) Belal Muhammad’s ankle looking bruised, walking funky? Possible injury ahead of UFC 288

Belal Muhammad is gearing up to take on Gilbert Burns in the co-main event of UFC 288, and he is confident that he will emerge victorious and earn himself a shot at the welterweight title.

The fans are slightly less confident considering they noticed slight bruising on Belal’s ankle including a funky walk during the weigh ins.

Despite being the underdog, Muhammad believes that he is the best fighter in the division and that he has what it takes to defeat Burns.

The bout between Muhammad and Burns is a pivotal one for the welterweight division, as the winner will face the victor of the Leon Edwards vs. Colby Covington bout. UFC president Dana White has already confirmed that the winner of Muhammad vs. Burns will get a title shot, adding even more pressure to an already high-stakes matchup.

Muhammad has been working hard to get to this point, and he sees Burns as the only obstacle standing in his way. Burns has been given the opportunities that Muhammad has been hoping for, and now he’s taking everything that Muhammad has worked for.

This is Muhammad’s chance to show that he is the better martial artist and to take what he believes is rightfully his.

” I want that belt so bad, there’s no more running, there’s no more hiding, the king is here, I’m going to break him.”

Muhammad knows that if he can defeat Burns, he will have earned his shot at the title. He is currently ranked fourth in the welterweight division and has not lost since 2019. He is also on an impressive 10-win streak and is coming off a TKO win over Sean Brady.
