Hasbulla Magomedov & Abdu Rozik held back after altercation at UFC 267


UFC 267, which was held in Abu Dhabi on Saturday, brought about a lot of entertainment... both inside the cage and outside of it.

After confirming earlier in the week that he would be present for the event, Hasbulla was seen in attendance along with his close friend Khabib Nurmagomedov.

In a viral video posted after the event by boxing pro Amir Khan, Hasbulla is seen throwing fists and feet with his great rival Abdu Rosik.

This cageside clash is just one of the latest in the rivalry between the two fighters.

The incident occurred as Petr Yan was interviewed in the cage following his win. Also seen in the video is Rozik mocking his rival’s hand gestures and the scuffle is then ended as both men are restrained by their respective teams.

Hasbulla lands a kick with his left leg and attempts to do the same with his right before they are finally contained.

There has been a lot of back and forth on social media between these two, which has caught the eyes of many in the combat world. There is a lot of hope that these two will finally enter the ring after a previously arranged fight between the two was cancelled.

The Hasbulla - Rosik rivalry began when they agreed to fight and the former earned the nickname “Mini Khabib.”

It seems likely that a bout in the ring will occur soon as a mystery sponsor put forward the $200,000 purse that was demanded by Hasbulla, but as of now, there is no date for the highly anticipated fight.

Meanwhile, at the UFC event, Islam Makhachev, who is a teammate of Khabib, made quick work of his fight against Dan Hooker, beating him in under three minutes and winning via technical submission.



Other highlights of the UFC 267 event included Glover Teixeira submitting Jan Blachowicz in the second round.

The 42-year-old Teixeira is pictured after the fight having the light heavyweight championship belt around his waist while Blachowicz is in the corner with his head bowed in his hands.

In the process, Texeira became the oldest fighter to win a UFC title for the first time.
