As social media stars Hasbulla and Abdu Rozik clash at UFC 267, they almost come to blows

Social media rivals Hasbulla and Abdu Rozik clashed at UFC 267 on Saturday night as they aimed blows at each other at the conclusion of the main event.

Newly-crowned UFC interim bantamweight champion Petr Yan was being interviewed in the cage following his win over Cory Sandhagen when the incident occurred.

In a film posted by former world champion boxer Amir Khab, Rozik is seen mocking his rivals hand gestures before the two are restrained by their respective teams.

Rozik beckons on Hasbulla who lands a soft kick with his left leg before trying the same with his right only to hit thin air before the pair were kept apart once more.

The rivals became internet sensations when they agreed to fight with Hasbulla quickly earning the nickname ‘Mini Khabib’, a nod to legendary UFC star Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Both men suffer from dwarfism and have so far been unable to agree terms and the fight has been put on the backburner.

The 18-year-olds were even filmed together earlier this year as they appeared to bond over a dove.

Hasbulla was in Abu Dhabi to support Islam Mackachev who submitted Dan Hooker in the first round to cement his lightweight title claims.

Rozik had attached himself to Hooker’s camp as the social media stars stole the limelight in the desert.

Hasbulla was photographed sitting next to UFC president Dana White before being carried into the octagon following Mackachev’s victory.
