Report: UFC’s Belal Muhammad heaps praise on Brave champ Al-Selwady: “He’s a beast”

UFC welterweight, Belal Muhammad recently caught up with fellow Palestinian and Brave lightweight champion, Abdul-Kareem Al-Selwady after the duo started off a friendship via social media which has developed into a combination of forces in the gym.

According to Muhammad, Al-Selwady is a “beast” in training and during fights and will become one of the top lightweights in the world of MMA in no time. Belal was also keen to pass on some advice to his younger friend, saying Al-Selwady shouldn’t rush things and let himself develop naturally.

“I just told him don’t try to rush anything because he’s a monster right now – he’s a beast. Brave is treating him really well and he’s a smart kid… He’s just doing it the smart way” said Muhammad in an interview with Top Turtle Podcast.

Belal talked about their encounter and also revealed that Al-Selwady plans to defend his Brave belt soon, after winning with a decisive TKO victory over the tough and experienced Lucas “Mineiro” back at Brave 18, in November of last year.

“We met each other through social media; MMA brought us together. He’s a good kid…We talked about how we train and what we like to train more. Brave is treating him really well right now so he said he wants to defend the title some more”.
