Despite his predicament, Hasbulla is still taking life head-on when he recently featured as a special guest at UFC 267. He carries the nickname of being ‘Mini Khabib’ as he also hails from the same country as the former lightweight champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov.

He said, “How could he do it? He isn’t my father or anything? Signed the contract to sell the fight? If, for example, I have something, I can give it to him, and then he sells it, but how can he sell my fight if it doesn’t exist.”

The Tajikistani singer also suffers from the predicament that haunts 18-year-old Hasbulla. Both individuals are of similar, height, age, and weight making it a perfect fight. In a viral Tik Tok video, the duo stared at each other down, while teasing the community about a possible fight. However, the recent update from Hasbulla has rubbished all the rumors and false claims.

UFC has conducted its fair share of exhibition bouts in the past 25+ years of its existence. Still, it seems highly unlikely that Dana White will try to make this fight happen in UFC card. It is fun to speculate about things, but in reality, UFC will only put an asterisk against its name.
