Leon Edwards shows ridiculously jagged physique ahead of UFC comeback fight against Belal Muhammad
LEON EDWARDS is in phenomenal shape ahead of his long-awaited return to the Octagon.
Birmingham Pride returns to the cage this weekend in the main event of UFC Fight Night 187 in Las Vegas.
Edwards will be welcomed back into the Octagon by fellow welterweight fellow in form Belal Muhammad, a short-term replacement for undefeated Khamzat Chimaev.
And the 29-year-old will enter the fight in the form of his career.
Late last week, Rocky shared a post-workout photo of himself and his trainer Henry Cleminson on Instagram.
The photo showed a topless Edwards with a bodybuilder-like definition in his core and quads.
Fighting fans were stunned by his physique and flocked to Twitter to ring on his diced frame.
One of them tweeted: “He looks like a fucking bodybuilder.”

Another said: “Leon looked scary. I could already see the power.”
Another said, “I think he goes through Bella like a freight train.”
After seeing Edwards’ finishing frame, a fan predicted the Briton would claim the welterweight throne this year.
They wrote: “Yes, the dedication to achieve this type of form as a fighter is unimaginable to me.
“A different breed and I think he’ll be the next champion if they give him a chance.”
Edwards’ clash with Muhammad will be his first octagonal outing in over 19 months.
And the Brummie are planning to make a statement in Sunday morning’s must-see fight.
He told The Schmo: “We’re both 18 and 3, but we’ve taken two different paths.
“I’ll prove it on Saturday night that we’re two different people, and I can’t wait to prove it to the world.”
He added: “I am going there to take him to safety and hurt him. I am looking forward to it.”
