Hasbulla: The UFC has it all. From McGregor to Jon-Jones, Adesanya to Whittaker, and Khabib to Hasbulla Magomedov? You may have encountered this MMA newbie on TikTok or Instagram. And if not, he’s the flash in the pan that has amassed over 2 million followers on Instagram since May 2021 and has been making the wrestling world talk ever since. But he’s not your typical cage warrior.
Forget the major UFC fights, this is the real icon to brace yourself for, and that’s what we know about Hasbulla Magomedov. The little star’s popularity accelerated with his social media antics, calling out the likes of McGregor and Khabib while hosting pre-fight press conferences. Not much is known about the mystery figure. But Hasbulla caught up with Barstool Sports’ Caleb Pressley this week for his first interview and delved into what makes the internet sensation tick.
Who is Hasbulla Magomedov?
Hasbulla was born and raised in Makhachkala, Dagestan. During the rise of the COVID-19 pandemic, he took to social media and began posting content on Instagram and TikTok, where his notoriety slowly grew. Early social media posts showcased his impulsive nature and life antics. Later posts saw him routinely wear wrestling gear, boxing, hitting, and punishing his opponents in the gym.
Hasbulla is 19 years old, although he has a child’s face, features, and a high-pitched voice.
In May 2021, his popularity blew up after his pre-fight press conference with 17-year-old popular Tajik singer Abdu Rozik. Even though being born with Growth Hormone Deficiency (GHD), also known as dwarfism, hasn’t dampened the fighter’s charisma and dedication to taking on challenges and growing the likes of former UFC Featherweight and Lightweight Champion and current Twitter Champion Connor shout McGregor. So if you’ve mistaken him for a spoiled young man by randomly scrolling through his Instagram, you’re not alone.
Age: 19 years old
Height: 99 cm/ 3 feet 3 inches
Weight: 16 kg/ 35 Ibs
Condition: Growth Hormone Deficiency (GHD) aka dwarfism
Drive and tune cars. Hasbulla Magomedov recently sat down with Barstool Sports host Caleb Pressley in his Sundae Conversation section to reveal his true internal workings like never before. Although he didn’t delve into a specific topic, unlike our recent interview with Alex Volkanovski. The interview rekindles his hatred for Abdu Rozik (more on his struggle below). His aspiration to become Dagestan’s Interior Minister, and his passion drifting away.
When Hasbulla became Interior Minister of Dagestan, he revealed that his plan would mainly revolve around traffic offense reduction, including plans;
- Lower the speed limit in the city but increase it on the highway.
- Window tinting for the rear of a vehicle is unlimited.
- Driving without registration.
- Remove all speed cameras.
- No more eyewitness photos or evidence of speeding.
He also spoke about his love for his cat, Barsik, and his disdain for the world’s most famous athlete, Ronaldo, declaring, “I’m more famous than he is.” His answer to the classic cat-versus-dog argument? It’s the cats.
Hasbulla reminds her that when he doesn’t have his razor with him, he handles every situation with his hands on and screams more ass than he “can count.” Of course, he sees himself as an expert in MMA. He let his enemies know that his fighting power comes from the streets.
What is Hasbulla Magomedov Famous For?
The Russian social media sensation has caused quite a stir in the MMA world. It is proud of his new nickname ‘Mini Khabib,’ which he earned after a video mimicking Khabib Nurmagmadov’s legendary UFC 229 weigh-in. And interestingly, they’re both homies. Being from Dagestan and interested in MMA, Hasbulla formed a friendship with the UFC, And the two were photographed and featured on each other’s social media. And although the two look alike, they are not blood relatives.
Habulla’s social media features photos and videos of him with prominent Russian wrestlers and fights with his friends. And after several videos of his adventures and training went viral, Hasbulla exploded in the world of MMA. His most widespread video is his pre-fight press conference with singer Abdu Rozik. Who suffers from the same growth disease and is about the same height as Habulla.
With Dagestan being a steady supplier of formidable MMA fighters, Hasbulla turned to boxing and mixed martial arts to transition to a herd mentality. The miniature wrestler’s social media feeds are full of videos of him approaching teammates twice his size and punching at the camera.
And due to his camaraderie and ambitious nature, his posts also routinely show him lifting weights, saving and beating his opponents in the gym. But that’s probably just show and antics and the gradual evolution of his training techniques. Combinations of punches and submissions.
Fans of his Instagram profile will note that Hasbulla has exquisite taste in cars. His social media channel is full of photos of him flanking and showing off new BMWs and AMGs. Granted. He’s short, he’s been shown driving cars while spinning the driver. Recklessly riding a quad bike on his community’s roads, and only driving a 4×4 on beaches. But he doesn’t stop there.
In addition to the cars, there are plenty of videos of the daredevil armed with 9mm pistols and jokingly brandishing knives at his teammates. He was seen shooting an AK-104. With the help of a policeman, he tries to pick up the gun himself and fails. But with the assistance of a police officer, he fires multiple shots from the rifle as if he were a veteran soldier.
Hasbulla Net Worth
Since the eruption on TikTok, there have been many questions about Hasbulla’s net worth. His social media status and promotional jobs have allegedly caused Hasbulla’s net worth to rise to over $100,000, though this cannot be verified. If the fight between Hasbulla and Abdu Rozik continues, you can expect that number to increase affectedly.
When is the Hasbulla Magomedov vs Abdu Rozik fight?
The fighting world is waiting for Hasbulla and Abdu Rozik’s pre-fight press conference, which took place in a dreary house’s living room. Say what you want to say about his size, that prefight press conference, like every other major UFC press conference, was a pure case of testosterone poisoning. From insults to cheap shots, barking to physical challenges, and personal attacks to expose others’ shortcomings. Watching the two pints exchange barbs with their high-pitched voices probably made all viewers pee and set the comments section on fire.
“It’s not even like an exhibition match – they get paid a lot of money. And it’s a show that makes people laugh. There’s nothing serious about that, it’s not a sport. From my point of view, this is unethical, it is wrong.” – Director of the club Uliana Podpalnaya.
According to Chechen wrestler Ashab Tamaev, the pair are ready to fight in mid or late June (that never happened). But the showdown between two teenagers with dwarfism has been condemned as “unethical” by the Russian Midget Athletic Association.
Update 5/4/2022: In a recent interview with Barstool Sports. Hasbulla reignited tensions with Abdu Rozik, stating that the next time he sees Rozik, it is “on sight”. And that he will “throw a hook,” means It continues. How about you put the two of us in a room and close the door, then one comes out. And the other can stay on the floor.
