Belal Muhammad is an American mixed martial artist who currently fights in the welterweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). He was born in Chicago, Illinois on January 17, 1988 and attended Lane Tech High School. From there he went on to become an All-American wrestler at Harper College in Palatine, IL. After college Belal decided to pursue a career as a professional fighter and began training under renowned coach Pat Miletich at the Miletich Fighting Systems Academy.

In 2011 Belal made his professional debut with a submission win over Carlos Martinez in just 2 minutes and 10 seconds. His second fight was another quick finish; this time by TKO against Marcio Grimaldi also lasting just 2 minutes and 10 seconds. It became clear very early on that Belal had skills inside the cage and he quickly started to rise up through rankings of local promotions such as Hoosier Fight Club, Victory FC & RFA where he won multiple titles including Middleweight & Welterweight Champion before signing with UFC in 2016.
