The online sensation has reportedly secured a five-year contract with the UFC that is “worth more than many fighters.” Hasbulla Magomedov, who has a kind of dwarfism, has become a social media phenomenon, with over two billion views on TikTok and over three million Instagram followers. The 19-year-old Russian native has risen rapidly since his first “fight” against Abdu Rozik, who has a similar growth problem; he has since signed a media agreement with the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
UFC With a ‘Weird’ Move
Igor Lazorin, a combat sports writer, updated his Instagram followers on the 19-year-old’s plans. Including a photo of himself and Hasbulla, Lazorin wrote, “Hasbulla signed a five-year contract with UFC!” Tournament appearances and press conferences have thus far been on the agenda.
Since then, there has been a great deal of expectation brought on by the post, but the UFC has not yet commented on the supposed media arrangement. Hasbulla, who was born in Dagestan, has, over the course of the past several years, become acquainted with a number of renowned people, including the former UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, whom he refers to as his brother. Hasbulla has also made some very famous friends.
The Mini Khabib
Hasbulla and Khabib seem to create quite an odd connection, especially after the 19-year-old punched the unbeaten champion, who is known as “Mini Khabib.” Hasbulla has been given the nickname “Mini Khabib.” The news comes right in the heart of the ongoing beef between Hasbulla and UFC star Conor McGregor, making things a bit less cordial and certainly a lot more antagonistic between the two. McGregor took to Twitter in order to target the viral sensation with a series of tweets, all of which have now been removed from McGregor’s account for unknown reasons.
