Belal Muhammad is a Mixed Martial Artist who is currently competing in the welterweight division of the UFC. The welterweight contender was born in Chicago, Illinois, the USA on July 9th 1988. In his six-year UFC career, Belal has emerged as one of the best fighters in the 170-pound division and has amassed a brilliant record of 21-3.
After making his UFC debut in 2016, Remember the Name has defeated big names like Vicente Luque, Stephen Thompson, Demian Maia and many others. Belal Muhammad is currently #5 in the welterweight rankings and is on a great seven-fight winning run.
If Belal continues to maintain his brilliant winning streak then we could see him challenge for the title in the coming year. However, let’s shift the focus from Belal’s professional career and take a look at his family life.
Belal Muhammad’s religion and family life
Belal Muhammad was born and raised in America but his mother hails from Al Birah in Palestine. Meanwhile, his dad is from the USA. The 33-year-old UFC welterweight contender is a proud supporter of his parents’ hometown and he has displayed the Palestinian flag for some of his fights.
His father’s name is Abdullah Muhammad and mother’s name is Maha Muhammad. Belal’s father Abdullah used to work at the City of Chiaco for three years until 9/11 and thereafter he was fired.
Later his father owned a cell phone store in Chicago. For nearly fifteen years, his father’s business helped in supporting his family. But unfortunately Abdullah had to shut down his business after his store was vandalised during the Black Lives Matter protest in June 2020.
