Social media sensation Hasbullah punched Belal Muhammad as the two met in Abu Dhabi ahead of the American’s forthcoming battle with Sean Brady at UFC 280.
Around five billion people have seen Hasbulla’s videos on TikTok as the Russian has gained fame for his pranks and antics that have amused followers all over the world. He has strong ties to UFC legend Khabib Nurmagomedov and his protégé Islam Makhachev. He is also a huge admirer of mixed martial arts.
As the American gets ready for his bout with Sean Brady at UFC 280 later this month, Hasbulla and Muhammad ran into each other in Dubai. Hasbulla is planning to attend the event to support Makhachev.
Hasbulla hit Muhammad in the chin while they were posing for a photo, just like the internet sensation has done to numerous other former and current UFC fighters, and Muhammad acted to be hurt.
Hasbulla agreed to a hefty five-year contract with the UFC last month, and as part of it, he will represent the organization’s brand by showing up at live events like UFC 280.
