Ben Askren wants Dana White to setup Hasbulla vs Abdu in the UFC

Former UFC fighter Ben Askren wants to see Hasbulla vs Abdu in the UFC

Hasbulla vs Abdu seems to be the fight to make in the UFC, as per former UFC welterweight Ben Askren. The two internet sensations who got famous earlier this year with their proposed fights met again at the UFC 267 and got in to an altercation right after the main event ended.

Askren later reacted to the same and asked UFC president to setup this fight inside an octagon. Take a look at what he had to say:

“Please @danawhite for the love of god put these two in a cage together”

The fight was originally supposed to happen in Russia in a special event, however, it was pulled of because the Athletic Association of little people in Russia termed this fight as unethical. The fans can stay optimistic about the same as the fight can still happen outside of Russia with the right sponsors.

He has been named mini-khabib and is often seen with the former lightweight champion’s crew.
