It's fair to say Hasbulla's appearance at UFC 267 sparked a media frenzy.
A delighted White posed for a picture with the popular Russian at ringside as his friend Islam Makhachev picked up a win against Dan Hooker.
"We'll definitely do something with him."

The UFC president is clearly interested in bringing the pair to 'do something' with the company.
In fact, days after Saturday's event in Abu Dhabi, Hasbulla's promoter Asxab Tamaev has now claimed White is ready to make an offer.
He wrote on Instagram: "Friends, I welcome you. A couple of days ago, we met with Abdu Rozik. He is completely ready for battle.
"But there is more interesting news. Dana is ready to buy an event with Hasbik and Abdu Rozik for $1.5 million. I want to hear your opinion."
In recent days, the man who promoted a potential fight between Hasbulla and Rozik posted what he claims to be a screenshot of a direct message with White on Instagram.
As you can see below, the 52-year-old introduces himself to Tamaev before saying he would like to bring Hasbulla and his rival to the promotion. "Can we do it somehow?" he adds.
White then allegedly asks for Tamaev's telegram.
