UFC Fight Night Results: Edwards vs. Muhammad Ends After Eye Poke, Spann Demolishes Cirkunov

On Saturday, March 13, the UFC hosted UFC Fight Night: Edwards vs. Muhammad from the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.

Muhammad, meanwhile, fought just one month ago, defeating Dhiego Lima. The victory extended his current streak to four straight.
