Hasbulla Magomedov vs Abdu Rozik gained pace after UFC bought the fight in November
The fight was originally being promoted by Dagestani MMA fighter Asxab Tamaev aka the ‘Russian KGB Hulk’ who has also helped in growing Hasbulla’s online stardom. There were negative responses from many against the fight happening, but Tamaev had always assured that the bout would take place. Unfortunately, in July, Tamaev revealed that negotiations for the fight has fallen apart after Hasbulla demanded 20 million rubles ($268k) from the fight, more than double of the $95k he was offered initially, and the Makhachkala-born superstar’s parents barred him from taking part in the bout.
However, its Tamaev himself who came up with a massive revelation- that the MMA top drawer promotion UFC itself has purchased the fight from him, who revealed it via a social media post, while posing in front of his brand new Rolls-Royce.
“Hasbik is not very happy that I sold the fight. I’ll tell it as it is. Yes I sold the fight. And very happy about that. Thanks to him and Abdurozik for such a car,” Tamaev’s post on Instagram read.
