The upcoming mich anticipated fight between Dagestani internet vlogger Hasbulla Magomedov and Tajik rap artist Abdu Rozik is the talk of the combat sports town.
Like before any other big mixed martial event, the community gets split into two- picking and backing their own idols prior to the fight, and the situation is no different for Hasbulla vs Rozik.
Meanwhile, Armenian MMA star Dillon Danis has also found his pick for the fight, and has bestowed his support for Rozik against “Mini Khabib” Hasbulla.
Dillon Danis shows support towards Abdu Rozik
Both Hasbulla and Rozik are gaining massive popularity outside their country after their super hyped up pre fight press conference which was promoted by Dagestani mixed martial artist Asxab Tamaev recently.
With the addition of the netizens’ interest, some of the most prominent faces in MMA have also started to dive into the fight, and Bellator welterweight fighter and teammate of Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis recently went on a live session on Instagram where he expressed his support for Abdu Rozik.
In the presence of a translator, Danis revealed his support to Rozik, and said “if he (Rozik) was drunk he would still beat Hasbulla”, to which the 18-year-old Tajik reacted with a jolly smile.
Furthermore, Danis also asked Rozik about a potential scenario- in case Hasbulla pulls out from the fight, to which Rozik asserted that he would take on former UFC champion Henry Cedujo.
It is understandable for the MMA fans as to why Danis would be taking sides with Rozik in the fight, because dialling back to the days of UFC 229, when his mate Conor was having his fierce rivalry with Khabib, Danis himself was part of it and even had a brawl with “The Eagle” right after the match.
Meanwhile, Hasbulla has a strong bonding with Khabib. The two have been seen together in restaurants, and Hasbulla even enacted Khabib’s memorable UFC 229 weigh in, which earned him his nickname as a miniature version of the former UFC lightweight titleholder. So, its no wonder that Danis would naturally will be siding with Rozik in the clash.
