Belal Muhammad could be back in action in no time.

Muhammad made headlines for all the wrong reasons at UFC Vegas 21 this past weekend when he was caught with an unintentional but brutal eye poke from Leon Edwards in their welterweight headliner.

It meant their bout ended prematurely in the second round as a no contest. Fortunately, Muhammad’s vision was coming back as he revealed there was no permanent damage with his eye.

And he can be back action sooner rather than later as he just needs to receive clearance from an ophthalmologist for his right eye to compete again. That aside, he will only be given a minimum suspension until April 13 with no contact until April 4.

There were five other fighters, however, who are potentially facing six months out. They include: Ashley Yoder (right ear), Marcelo Rojo (left orbital), Nasrat Haqparast (left fibula), Rafa Garcia (right elbow), and Cortney Casey (right hand and foot).
