The man who promoted a potential fight between Hasbulla Magomedov and Abdu Rozik has claimed Dana White wants to bring the clash between these two social media sensations to the UFC.

Asxab Tamaev, a 19-year-old MMA fighter who has worked with Hasbulla in the past, posted what he claims to be a screenshot of a direct message between himself and the UFC's president on Instagram.

The DM, believed to be from Saturday night, begins with White introducing himself before saying he would like to bring Hasbulla and his rival to the promotion. "Can we do it somehow?" he adds.

As you can see in the screenshot below, White then allegedly asks for Tamaev's telegram.

Last month, Dana White teased that a meeting with Hasbulla would happen at the UFC 267 event and it soon became reality when the pair posed for a picture together.

It was a memorable night in Abu Dhabi. Islam Makhachev went up against Dan Hooker in a lightweight bout and picked up the win after another dominant performance.

Glover Teixeira went on to submit Jan Blachowicz in the second round but before that, the rivalry between Hasbulla Magomedov and Rozik boiled over at ringside on Saturday night.

As you can see in the footage below, a brawl with the social media sensations nearly broke out.

Ahead of UFC 267, White said he doesn't think Hasbulla will fight in the UFC but says the promotion will 'definitely do something' with him.
