Hasbulla has said that a fight with Abdu Rozik is “on sight” in a recent interview.
There has been a longstanding rumour of an MMA fight occurring between Hasbulla Magomedov and Rozik, which was originally supposed to be organised by Chechen MMA fighter Ashab Tamaev.
Now, Magomedov has cleared up the rumours, and it sounds like he wants there to be a fight on the cards.
He said to Caleb Pressley at Barstool Sports: “When I’m in Dubai, his home, he is nowhere to be found. But when I go back to Dagestan he starts talking that talk. When we actually square up in person, he freezes. He literally can’t move.”
“But next time I see him, it’s on sight. I’ll throw a hook,” he said of a potential fight.
“How about this? Put us in a room, shut the door and one man will come out. The other can stay slumped on the floor.”
It is not clear whether a fight will be taking place between the rivals following Hasbulla’s comments in the interview.
Two months ago, Hasbulla and Rozik clashed in a video.
The video, which was uploaded to Hasbulla’s official TikTok page, saw the internet sensations facing off in preparation for a possible fight.
As the tension was mounting between the pair, someone from Hasbulla’s team split them up, saying “enough!” before either of them got a chance to lay hands on each other.
Previously, when a fight between the pair was rumoured, a date failed to transpire.
The idea of the fight was previously condemned in some communities, with the Sports Association of Little People of Russia branding the fight as "unethical".
