Fox went on to ask the UFC chief if he had any plans on bringing the Dagestan star to the MMA organisation.

“I do know about him. He and I have a meeting in Abu Dhabi,” White replied.

Fox was left in disbelief at White’s response before the UFC president told him that he was only “f*****g with [him]” and burst out into laughter.

Hasbulla’s exploits on social media have even impressed Joe Rogan, with the UFC legend saying it is “incredible” how quickly he became a viral figure online.

The TikTok and Instagram star has been linked with a controversial fight with Tajik singer Abdu Rozik, who shares a similar child-like appearance to Hasbulla.
