Edwards (18-3 MMA) will be returning to action for the first time since July of 2019, when he defeated Rafael dos Anjos by decision. That victory had marked the Birmingham natives eighth in a row and propelled him to the top of the promotions welterweight rankings.

Belal Muhammad (18-3 MMA), meanwhile, will be looking to spring a significant upset and vault up the welterweight rankings in the direction of the champion with a win over Edwards at UFC Vegas 21. The Chicago native will enter tonight’s headliner sporting a four-fight winning streak, his latest being a unanimous decision victory over Dhiego Lima at UFC 258.
