Hasbulla Magomedov Demands Staggering Eight-Figure Purse For 'Fight Of The Century'

Social media sensation Hasbulla Magomedov has apparently turned down a big money offer to fight fellow internet star Abdu Rozik, demanding a eye-watering eight-figure purse.

The viral face-off between Hasbulla and Rozik could lead to a blockbuster MMA bout in the near future.

Though if Team Rozik want to lure Hasbulla into a fight, then they need to pay up - and by some way.

The diminutive-Dagestani has named his price and it's astronomical.

He's claimed that he's already turned down 7 million Russian ruble, asking for a staggering $20 million.

He tweeted: "Update on the fight of the century: Hasbulla refused 7M$ Russian Ruble to fight Abdu rozik and want nothing less than 20M$."

Hasbulla's promoter Asxab Tameav, who featured in the face-off video, also shared a post about their huge demand.

While the clash between the pair of internet phenoms is hypothetical at this stage, it's expected to be organised by Tameav.

But the head of Russia's Dwarf Athletic Association, Uliana Podpalnaya, has said the potential clash would be 'unethical'.

Speaking to gazeta.ru, Podpalnaya said: "It's not even like a show fight - they [Magomedov and Rozik] get paid a lot of money and it's a show to make people laugh.

"There's nothing serious about this, this isn't sport. This is unethical, wrong, from my point of view.

"It seems to be that only on the one hand it can be correct and beautiful - if martial arts among small people are made a Paralympic sport.

"It could be Judo, Karate, and people will understand that this is a serious sport, serious performances, and not some kind of laughing show.

"Events like this don't draw attention to the sport of little people. If interest in this appears, it's only business a lot of money is being invested in it.

"And from the point of view of the sports career growth of these guys, there are no prospects."
