Internet sensation Abdu Rozik trades punches with UFC middleweight contender Darren Till as he prepares for his fight against Hasbulla.

Abdu Rozik with Darren Till

UFC Middleweight contender Darren Till had a friendly interaction with internet sensation and eternal rival of Hasbulla Magomedov, Abdu Rozik.

Till and Abdu was in attendance at the Probellum boxings show at Coca-Cola Arena in Dubai on Saturday. They were both caught on footage having an exchange with Abdu showing off his head movements and slips with combos and Till looked to cover up from Abdu’s onslaughts.

Take a look at their interaction here.

Abdu took over the internet when he and Hasbulla recreated UFC press conferences and face-off during the pandemic which led to their rise in fame. Till seemed to be present supporting his compatriot Edwards who successfully defended his IBF flyweight title against Jayson Mama.

‘The Gorilla’ last fought in the main event of UFC Fight Night 191 where he submitted to Derek Brunson leading to his second straight loss. He’s having a hard time finding his footing in the UFC, but Till is not demotivated, and he is working hard to get back up to the title and fulfill his dream of becoming the undisputed champion.

Can we expect Hasbull and Abdu Rozik to fight anytime soon?

Abdu Rozik is calling out Hasbulla for a fight by knocking out a sparring partner

Hasbulla and Rozik were both presents at UFC 267 earlier this year and following the end of the main event, they both came to blows with each other. Dana White seems to have made an offer to buy an event involving the two stars according to promoter Asxab Tamaev.

“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.”

However, the proposed fight has been condemned by the Russian Athletic Association For Dwarfs who issued a statement condemning the “unethical” match-up.
