Muhammad’s recent run

The 31-year-old Muhammad will take on Takeshi Sato at the September 7th event, and he’ll do so, following a decision win over the dangerous, Curtis Millender in April. Prior to that, Muhammad (15-3) dropped a decision to the rising Geoff Neal, and that loss snapped the Chicago fighter’s four fight wining streak.

Sato (12-2), meanwhile, is coming off a stoppage win over Ben Saunders in April, which went down in his UFC debut.

As noted above, the latest “Anatomy of a Fighter” followed Muhammad as he trains for his upcoming bout, and as he comments on competing alongside Khabib. You can check it out below.
