It looks like the Hasbulla vs Abdu fight is back on as a sponsor for what's set to be the biggest fight of the year has now been found.
Fans have been anxiously awaiting the announcement of this match between 18-year-old Hasbulla Magomedov, who's been nicknamed the "Mini Khabib" (after Khabib Nurmagomedov) by the UFC community, and his opponent Abdu Rozik.
The social media star has taken the internet by storm since posting a video of him reenacting one of Khabib's iconic UFC weigh-ins.
The pre-fight video between Hasbulla and Abdu racked up nearly nine-million views in its first three days, so it was only a matter of time before a sponsor came forward and made this fight happen.
MMA blogger, Robbie Fox, said:
"I knew it! I knew they would find the proper funding for this fight - I mean, how could they not?! Countries like Saudi Arabia are paying for The Undertaker vs Goldberg nowadays and nobody had $200,000 to cough up for Hasbulla to fight Abdu Rozik....with the numbers they're putting up?! "
So who is this mystery sponsor? The identity of the sponsor isn't known, but the main thing is the fight is back on.
Sharing his enthusiasm for the fight, Twitter user @Dajw_99 said: "If your asking me if I would pay £20 ppv from @btsport to watch this fight. Then the answer is absolutely I would."
"Can this guy stop toying with us and schedule the flippen fight," said Twitter user @asoondka.
We're not sure when exactly it's happening, but hopefully Hasbulla and Abdu won't keep fans waiting for too much longer.
We'll let you know as soon as there's an update.
