Leon Edwards experienced disappointment Saturday when his main event with Belal Muhammad at UFC Fight Night 187 ended in a no contest.

Edwards (18-3 MMA, 10-2 UC) accidentally poked Muhammad (18-3 MMA, 9-3 UFC) in the eye in the second round of their welterweight headliner at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, spoiling a potential shining moment for the Brit in a big spot.

“Rocky” appeared to be en route to a big win that would potentially lock up a title shot at 170 pounds, but now the next step is murky for him.
