Hasbulla Magomedov laughed off a callout from Abdu Rozik after his fierce rival told him to “send me location.”
Mini Khabib was in attendance for UFC 267 on Saturday in Abu Dhabi, with the social media star cheering on close pal Islam Makhachev in his clash with Dan Hooker.
Makhachev locked in a devastating kimura on Hooker and secured a sensational first-round win over his opponent at the Etihad Arena.
Hasbulla -- believed to be 18 years old -- celebrated Makhachev’s victory alongside UFC legend Khabib Nurmagomedov inside the octagon.
However, the Dagestan-born star was also involved in a cageside altercation with Rozik, who was drafted into the Hooker camp for the UFC 267 fight.
Tajik singer Rozik, who accused Hasbulla of running away from their brawl, took a page out of Khabib’s playbook and told his rival to “send me location.”
And Hasbulla burst out into uncontrollable laughter after he was informed of Rozik’s callout, with Mini Khabib’s priceless reaction making the rounds on social media.
Hasbulla, who suffers from dwarfism, sent a message to Dana White ahead of UFC 267 and met with the UFC president during the event in Abu Dhabi.
“Dana White, I’m coming to UFC Abu Dhabi. See you soon,” he told White in a video message.
White responded: “I’m on the plane. I’m on Etihad, right now, on my way to Abu Dhabi. I cannot wait for our meeting and I cannot wait to see you.”
MMA fighter Asxab Tamaev promoted the so-called ‘Fight of the Century’ between Hasbulla and Rozik, which has failed to materialise to date.
The 19-year-old Russian has now claimed that White wants to host Hasbulla vs Rozik in the UFC after sharing an exchange between himself and the MMA chief.
White has refused to rule out some form of collaboration with Hasbulla, who shot to stardom on Instagram and TikTok thanks to his child-like voice and appearance.
Speaking ahead of UFC 267, he said: “I don't know if he'll fight in the UFC, but he's definitely gonna do something with us.”
Hasbulla’s stock value will continue to rise in the coming weeks after Jake Paul confirmed the Russian would be in his training camp.
Paul is set to collide with fierce rival Tommy Fury in Tampa, Florida, on 18th December, with Hasbulla to feature in the YouTuber-turned-boxer’s corner.
