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 will return to the cage this weekend at the UFC Fight Night 187 main event in Las Vegas.
Edwards will be welcomed back into the Octagon by fellow welterweight fellow Belal Muhammad, a short-notice 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 heart and quads.
Fighting fans were stunned by his physique and flocked to Twitter to have his diced image ringed.
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 it 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, “Yikes, the dedication to getting into that type of form as a fighter is unimaginable to me.

“Different breed and I think he will 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 plan to make a statement in Sunday morning’s winnable bout.
He told the Schmo: “We’re both 18 and 3, but we’ve taken two different paths.
“I’m going to prove on Saturday night that we’re two different people, and I can’t wait to prove it to the world.”
He added: “I’m going there to put him aside and hurt him. I can’t wait to be there.”
