Everyone is aware of the most heated rivalry in the history of MMA, internet is going to explode when Hasbulla will take on his arch-nemesis Abdu Rozik in a fight. Their rivalry started when these two squared off against each other in a UFC style press-conference and exchanged some harsh words.
Hasbulla and Rozik agreed to fight but the Russian dwarf association condemned this fight and called it demeaning to the whole dwarf community. They have been going back at each other ever since, and they even got into a physical altercation at the live event of UFC 267 in Abdu Dhabi.
Hasbulla is from Dagestan, and he is a close friend of former UFC’s lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, he was even in the corner of Islam Makhachev for his fight against Dan Hooker at UFC 267, and Khabib talked about Hasbulla’s popularity in a recent interview, he said, “He has to go the US, all the big sports stars know him there, he’s very popular. He has to move for a couple of years to the US and become maybe a billionaire. Minimum he can become a millionaire. They want to pay him some big money to get him into the ring. He’s immensely popular abroad.”
“Peace is better than war,” Khabib Nurmagomedov wants Hasbulla and Abdu Rozik to set out an example for the world
Khabib is moving ahead with his own fighting organization Eagle FC, and many people expected Hisbik vs Abdu to take place in Khabib’s organization. This is a fight that everyone wants but “The Eagle” has a different stance on it, talking to the reporters, he said, “Honestly, I don’t want to make this fight. I don’t support this idea. I don’t think this is a good idea.”
He added, “They’re both big names, they can create some good things if they become friends. If I had a choice, I’m going to make them friends. Maybe do some good charity things, they can become ambassadors for charity funds… but I don’t want to see this fight. We have enough fighting around the world. Peace is better than war.”
