UFC 304: Edwards vs. Muhammad 2 Picks, Predictions & MMA Betting Odds

The UFC returns to England with a massive UFC 304 event that looks set to be one of the best cards of the year. The main event features a welterweight title fight between British fighter Leon Edwards and Belal Muhammad. Tom Aspinall also looks to defend his heavyweight interim belt in the UFC 304 co-main event while other British fighters, including Paddy Pimblett, Arnold Allen, Muhammad Mokaev, Molly McCann, and Nathaniel Wood, will all be fighting.

When & Where is UFC 304?

UFC 304 will take place in the Co-op Live Arena in Manchester, England. It’s the fifth time the organization has been to Manchester, but the first time since 2016. The MMA fights will get underway on July 27, and despite being a UK card, the event is scheduled for regular PPV times.

Previous Fights & Fighter History

Leon Edwards v Belal Muhammad

Edwards and Muhammad met in the cage previously in March 2021. That was before Edwards won the welterweight title in dramatic fashion, and he’s since defended his belt against Kamaru Usman and Colby Covington. Meanwhile, Muhammad is currently on an impressive run of nine fights without a loss, including five wins since he fought Edwards.

Their first fight ended in an unfortunate no contest after it was stopped in the second round due to an accidental eye poke. While we didn’t get to see much from either fighter in the first fight, it did seem like Edwards got the better of Muhammad. As a result, he’s the favorite in this rematch, and most fans expect him to remain the welterweight champion.

Tom Aspinall v Curtis Blaydes

Another big rematch on the main card, and another English fighter defending their title. Aspinall is the current interim heavyweight champion. His only loss in the UFC came to Blaydes due to a knee injury in the first round, and the referee stepped in to stop the fight.

Blaydes has an excellent record in the UFC and great wrestling ability, but he has been stopped by heavy hitters before. He was recently TKO’d by Pavlovich, and Aspinall has never gone to the judges’ scorecards in his professional career. Unsurprisingly, the current champion is the heavy favorite in this co-main event.

Bobby Green v Paddy Pimblett

Paddy the Baddy has faced criticism in recent fights. After an impressive submission win over Leavitt, he got a controversial decision win over Gordon before beating an over-the-hill Ferguson. He now has a good opportunity to get a win over a ranked opponent, with his submission grappling skills potentially giving him the edge.

Bobby Green is no easy fight, that’s for sure. The no 15 ranked fighter in the lightweight division has excellent boxing, which is why he’s the slight favorite in this matchup. Paddy often leaves his chin exposed, and he may struggle to take Green down due to the American’s takedown defense.
