Dana White is refusing to rule out the idea of Hasbulla ever fighting in the UFC.

Yes, it feels strange even typing that sentence out, but it's true.

The UFC president has now admitted that there is more than a 0% chance that Hasbulla enters the octagon to have a scrap at some point down the line.

When exactly remains to be seen, although it's abundantly clear that White seems interested in facilitating some sort of event which includes the internet sensation.

"The video that he [Hasbulla] sent saying 'Dana White, I'm coming to the UFC in Abu Dhabi', that's the biggest post I've ever posted," White told Barstool Sports.

"I have 6.7 million followers on Instagram. 6.4 million people watched that video."

When asked how their supposed meeting ahead of UFC 267 went, White replied: "Incredible. It was incredible. I love the kid."

Barstool Sports reporter Robbie Fox then questioned whether there was ever a chance we'd witness Hasbulla lacing up the gloves.

"Is there more than a 0% chance that Hasbulla fights in the UFC?" Fox asked.

To which White replied: "Is there more than a 0% chance? Yes."

TikTok fan favourite Hasbulla is hot property right now.

Last weekend at UFC 267 in Abu Dhabi he was one of the star attractions, seen squaring off with the likes of Daniel Cormier and Antonio Minotauro Nogueira backstage before showing support for his good friend Islam Makhachev octagon-side.

He even went nose-to-nose with rival Abdu Rozak at one point in one of his many clips that racked up millions of views online.

After their press conference went viral earlier this year, there have been talks that Abdu and Hasbulla could square off someday and settle their differences inside an octagon or ring.

But despite all the hype, a deal is yet to be done.

If White is serious, then there's only one bout to make and it's definitely this one.
