Dana White issues a warning to Conor McGregor regarding Hasbulla, as Dana thinks McGregor might be in trouble when he comes across the social media influencer.
As fans very well know, the relationship between Hasbulla and Conor McGregor is not exactly a friendly one. Hasbulla is a part of Khabib Nurmagomedov‘s inner circle. He will also be in Islam Makhachev’s corner for the UFC 280 main event fight against Charles Oliveira. It just goes to show how close the 19-year-old is to the Nurmagomedov clan.

So, it came as a surprise to none when fans saw Hasbulla taking digs at The Notorious One. Recently, Hasbulla posted a video on his Twitter account where he was seen naming his chicken after the former UFC double champ. After that, Conor warned Hasbulla and said he will make him pay for it if they ever come face to face. However, Dana White does not think it is a good idea.
Recently, he appeared on My Mom’s Basement with Robbie Fox. The host asked Dana questions about Hasbulla signing for the UFC and Conor’s reaction to the news. In response to that, the UFC President started laughing and replied, “No (Conor McGregor did not hit me up about the news)… I know (Conor’s beef with Hasbulla). Told ya, Conor can f**k around and get his a** whopped if he runs into him out in the streets.”
Dana White keeps the mystery going about Hasbulla fighting in the UFC
The news regarding Hasbulla’s association with the UFC has been circulating for quite a while now. Reports came out a few weeks ago that Hasbulla Magomedov has inked a 5-year deal with the UFC. It was rumoured that he will only feature during the events as an ambassador for the company and do some media sessions. However, it looks like there is more to it than initially reported.

Recently the man himself took to his social media accounts to announce that he has officially signed with the UFC, with the intention of fighting. During his conversation with Robbie Fox, Dana White refused to clarify whether the Russian star will indeed fight inside the Octagon or not. In typical Dana White fashion, he played coy.
“I didn’t know this was coming. But yes, we did sign Hasbulla and what he’s gonna end up doing, remains to be seen.”

Following the news of his signing for the UFC, Hasbulla did not waste a single second to call out his nemesis, Abdu Rozik. During the lockdown in early 2020, the feud between Hasbulla and Abdu Rozik became a worldwide sensation.
Although a few years have passed since then, there seems to be no love lost between the two. In a recent UFC PPV, both were present in the arena and had a heated altercation.
What is your take on the whole matter? Do you think Hasbulla will end up having a bout inside the UFC Octagon? If he does, do you want to see him fight Abdu Rozik? Let us know in the comments down below.
