- Hasbulla confronted Alexander Volkanovski in Abu Dhabi
- The pair put on a hilarious encounter for the ages
The reigning UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski is currently in Abu Dhabi after willingly offering himself as a backup fighter for either Charles Oliveira or Islam Makhachev. Little did “The Great” know, he would wound up crossing paths with internet star Hasbulla and what happened next was something epic.
Hasbulla abused Volk
In a short promo video of UFC 280, Volkanovski was seen talking about Hasbulla inside a room. All of a sudden, the famous social media personality arrived and walked straight to the UFC’s pound-for-pound king.
Hasbulla offered to give Volkanovski a hug. However, as soon as the champ held his hand, Hasbulla pulled him down to the ground and started beating up.
Watch the hilarious encounter below:
After viciously mauling Volk all over the place, Hasbulla then took his UFC featherweight strap and posed for the camera.
There’s more to come
Previous reports stated that Hasbulla inked a five-year deal with the UFC which meant he would be cageside in the promotion’s biggest events. Ali Abdelaziz also confirmed that the internet star will be in the corner of Makhachev at the card’s main event. But more importantly, Hasbulla confirmed that he “officially signed a deal to fight in the UFC” and the “details will be revealed by the end of the year.”
