Tomorrow, Belal Muhammad will enter the octagon for the first time in seven months to face Gilbert Burns in a welterweight bout.

How did fans react to Belal Muhammad mimicking Khabib Nurmagomedov? 

Many fans of The Eagle and mixed martial arts fans in general shared their reaction at Belal copying Khabib’s style. A user said, “Walmart version of Khabib.” 

“Belal wonders why he has no fans, bro. Whoever wins between him and Burns deserves the title shot. But fuck me if it’s Belal that’s gonna be the worst presser imagine Leon Vs Belal.” another user commented. 

Kamal Dehna thinks it only makes sense why Belal doesn’t have a lot of fans in the UFC as he said,” It’s weird to see so many haters on this guy for no reason? Remember the name”

Alien is also annoyed at what Belal did during the press conference and is hoping that the American fighter loses as she said, “Let’s just hope he lose and go back to the prelims where he belongs.” 

“This so embarrassing why would he try and imitate Khabib like that ??? The accent too??” another user expressed. 

“Lol funny cus he doesn’t even thi jnhes khabib he thinks he’s Gilbert. He literally just copied what Gilbert said.” said a user. 

Giovanna Lewis, however, was rooting for Remember The Name until this happened. Now he changed his support as it seems as he commented, “Was cheering for Belal until the New Jersey slander smh. Lets go dilbert.” 

“Belal Muhammad. He’s horrible to watch. He’s a bad commentator, can’t sell a fight. That’s why he can’t get a title fight.”Neo commented.
