UFC President Dana White says business dealings with Hasbulla have been a success.
Hasbulla and White have had a solid relationship. The UFC boss surprised Hasbulla with a room full of puppies for his birthday. White couldn’t help but notice there was “dog sh*t” all over the floor. The social media star has also signed on with the UFC for a merchandise deal and a UFC video game deal.

Hasbulla Makes Bank With UFC & Nelk Boys, Says Dana White
Dana White recently appeared on an episode of “Hot Boxin’ With Mike Tyson.” During the show, White revealed that Hasbulla has pulled in seven figures from his deals with the UFC and Nelk Boys.
“Hasbulla’s done very well,” White said. “I mean, we did a deal with him for the video game deal. We did a deal with him with T-shirts where he made a bunch of money. The kid’s made. Easily over a million dollars just with us and the Nelk Boys, he’s made easily over a million bucks. He’s killing it.”
White has also been chummy with the Nelk Boys. The group’s co-founder, Kyle Forgeard, was gifted $250,000 from the UFC President. White then discussed the Nelk Boys helping Hasbulla out during his time in the United States.
“They took really good care of him,” White said. “When he came out here, they took him on this tour and did a lot of really good sh*t for him.”
Mike Tyson mentioned how Hasbulla would probably be willing to compete in actual sanctioned fights. Dana White told “Iron” Mike that he believes it would happen if Hasbulla wants it.
“How funny is Hasbulla? Isn’t he a very good kid, man? Listen, Hasbulla is a mean little motherf*cker,” White said. “He’d do it, he’d definitely do it.”
