Belal Muhammad receives severe backlash after shouting Nickleback in his post fight interview

Belal “Remember the unanimous decision” Muhammad received severe backlash after shouting out Nickleback after his rematch with Vicente Luque.

Backstage during the post fight interviews Belal when asked by one reporter what inspired him to start fighting he gave a shoutout to the musical band Nickleback. He went on to explain how they inspired his fighting style. Muhammad said the following on how he compares himself to them:

“When I was young, I looked at Nickleback and said to my self, I want to be like them. The lack of skill and entertainment that it takes to get as hated as Nickleback is nothing short of impressive, I want that”

Our MMAFPress reporter Brent Welwany asked if he can explain further what he means by it and Belal had made the following bullet points and gave his reason at the end.

  • If you want to see the best raper you look at Woodley.
  • If you want to see the best comedian you look at Brendan Schaub.
  • If you want to see the best actor you look at Aljamain Sterling.
  • If you want to see the most hated musical band you look at Nickleback

“I want to be the best at something. That’s why i got into this sport so since grappling, wrestling, striking or charisma is none of them i will be the most boring fighter ever”
