UFC Vegas 21: Edwards- Muhammad Declared No Contest
By FCF Staff
The pivotal headliner for UFC Vegas 21 ended in unfortunate and scary circumstances tonight, after Belal Muhammad incurred a vicious eye poke.
The welterweight faced top contender Leon Edwards in the main event, who stunned Muhammad with a headkick in round one.
