UFC Reportedly 'Offers $1.5 Million' For Fight Between Hasbulla And Abdu Rozik

UFC president Dana White is 'ready to buy' an event involving social media sensations Hasbulla Magomedov and Abdu Rozik for an extraordinary $1.5 million fee, according to promoter Asxab Tamaev.

On Saturday night, the heated rivalry between Hasbulla and Rozik boiled over at UFC 267 in Abu Dhabi when the pair were spotted confronting each other at ringside.

In the below clip that soon went viral, Magomedov landed a kick on his rival before security split them up.

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.

Ahead of UFC 267, White said he didn't think Hasbulla would fight in the UFC but claimed the promotion will '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.
