Hasbulla playfully punched Daniel Cormier, enjoyed a headbutting fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov and scrapped with rival Abdu Rozik.

But the Russian-born celeb also met White during his trip to the Middle East.

Hasbulla revealed their meeting en route to Abu Dhabi, posting: “Dana White, I’m coming to UFC Abu Dhabi. See you soon.

“I’m on the plane. I’m on Etihad, right now, on my way to Abu Dhabi.

“I cannot wait for our meeting and I cannot wait to see you.”

White has now confirmed his own follow-up post was his most-viewed EVER – such is Hasbulla’s popularity.

And the UFC chief has opened the door to Hasbulla fighting on one of his cards – with reports of a £1million showdown with Adbu setting tongues wagging.

White told Bar Stool Sports: “So I’m going to tell you something…

“The video he sent saying ‘Dana White I’m coming to Abu Dhabi and UFC’… when I posted that with me on the plane saying ‘I’m coming’, it’s the biggest post that I’ve ever posted.

“I have 6.7million followers on Instagram… 6.4million people watched that video.

“Isn’t that f***ing crazy?”

White continued by hinting he’d be open to allowing Hasbulla to fight in UFC one day.

When asked how his meeting with Hasbulla went, White replied: “Incredible. I love the kid.

“Is there more than a zero percent chance [of him fighting in UFC]? Yes.”
