Edwards will be welcomed back into the Octagon by fellow-form welterweight Belal Muhammad, a short-term replacement for undefeated Khamzat Chimaev.

And the 29-year-old will enter the fight in the form of his career.

Late last week, Rocky shared a post-workout photo of himself and his trainer Henry Cleminson on Instagram.

The photo showed a topless Edwards with a bodybuilder-like definition in his core and quads.

Fighting fans were stunned by his physique and flocked to Twitter to ring on his diced frame.

One of them tweeted: “He looks like a fucking bodybuilder.”

Another said: “Leon looked scary. I could already see the power.”

Another said, “I think he goes through Bella like a freight train.”

After seeing Edwards’ finishing frame, a fan predicted the Briton would claim the welterweight throne this year.

They wrote: “Yes, the dedication to achieve this type of form as a fighter is unimaginable to me.

“A different breed and I think he’ll be the next champion if they give him a chance.”

Edwards’ clash with Muhammad will be his first octagonal outing in over 19 months.

And the Brummie are planning to make a statement in Sunday morning’s must-see fight.

He told The Schmo: “We’re both 18 and 3, but we’ve taken two different paths.

“I’ll prove it on Saturday night that we’re two different people, and I can’t wait to prove it to the world.”

He added, “I’m going there to take him to safety and hurt him. I can’t wait to be there.”
