Blimey, it's all kicking off. The rivalry between Hasbulla Magomedov and Abdu Rozik boiled over in Abu Dhabi on Saturday night when the pair were spotted confronting each other at ringside.

To the delight of many Hasbulla fans on social media, it was confirmed earlier this week that the Dagestani internet sensation, who has become massive on TikTok and Instagram in recent months, would be in attendance at UFC 267.

Last month, UFC president Dana White teased that a meeting with Hasbulla would happen at the event and well, it did as the pair posed for a picture together.


In terms of the card, Islam Makhachev, a teammate of Khabib Nurmagomedov, 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 to become the oldest fighter to win a UFC title for the first time.

But it was Hasbulla's appearance that grabbed the headlines as he almost sparked a brawl with fellow social media sensation Abdu Rozik. You can see the clash between the pair below.

Things got heated, alright.

Following back and forth digs on social media, Abdu and Hasbulla, dubbed the face of the fight game, have grabbed the attention of the fight world.

It all kicked off with an intense face-off back in May; a video that has racked up over 15 million views on YouTube.

For a while it looked like the fight was off but a sponsor was reportedly found for the biggest bout of the year.

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?"

In August, Rozik taunted fellow social media sensation Hasbulla with the iconic WBC belt draped over his shoulder in a chilling call-out video.
