Sharabutdin Magomedov was set to face Ihor Potieira at UFC on ABC 6 next month. His opponent was pulled from the bout, however, in order to face Michel Pereira at UFC 301, losing the bout via first-round submission.

'Bullet' recently revealed that he is hoping to face 'Demolidor' as a result of the No. 13-ranked welterweight walking out with the Israeli flag when he defeated Andre Petroski via first-round TKO at UFC Fight Night 230 last October.

In comments shared by Championship Rounds, he stated:

"While this hypocrite is saving dogs in Brazil from a flood, ignoring my call, a thousand children are lying under bombs at the hands of child killers, and at the time he came out with the flag of this country and shouted to the whole world and supported them. Sooner or later I will get to him Inshallah, and then this merry fellow will not have so much fun."

Check out the tweet from Championship Rounds below:

Pereira has not responded to Magomedov's call out as he has been assisting with rescue efforts following the Rio Grande do Sul floods. He appeared in line to make a quick turnaround and return just five weeks after UFC 301, facing Roman Dolidze at UFC on ESPN 57.

The bout fell through, however, as the two train at the same gym and 'Demolidor' did not believe he had enough time to find a new one. With him and 'Bullet' both without an opponent, it remains to be seen if the UFC will pit them against one another.

"@michelpereiraufc, you damn acrobat, I lost my opponent because of you. Everyone knows that you can do backflips now, but UFC is not a circus. You made an illegal move, and now you have [to be] punished. @ufc @mickmaynard2 @aliabdelaziz let me deal with this clown, ship him to Saudi Arabia 22 June and I will quickly teach him a lesson."
