Hasbulla is not an MMA fighter but seems to be an aspiring fighter. He started posting content on Instagram during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. Before long, he already had up to 2 million followers on the platform, where he mostly posts pranks and spoof videos related to mixed martial arts (MMA).
His early social media posts portrayed his spirited nature, while later posts spot him on fighting gear, casually boxing and striking opponents in the gym.
Hasbulla’s fame does not end on Instagram, as his videos are also posted on other social media platforms like YouTube.
Hasbulla Magomedov’s Age and stature
People are often surprised when they realize that Hasbulla is 18 years old as he looks younger than his age. He was born in 2003. He is short (3′ 3″ in height) and is blessed with a high-pitched voice.
Does Hasbulla have a medical condition?
There is no official update on Hasbulla’s health status. However, it is believed that the lad has a form of dwarfism based on his height relative to his age.
Dwarfism is a genetic or medical disorder that causes a person to be considerably shorter than people of the same age range. The term ‘dwarfism’ is usually used to describe adults that are less than 4 feet 10 inches.
This medical condition is caused by a deficiency of the growth hormone (GH). However, it doesn’t stop people suffering from it from living normal, healthy lives like other people.
Why Hasbulla Magomedov is famous
Hasbulla is popular in the MMA scene and has been given the nickname- Mini Khabib. Hasbulla got the nickname after recreating the video of UFC’s icon, Khabib Nurmagomedov UFC 229 weigh-in. Hasbulla and Khabib became close friends and now appear together frequently in videos.
The relationship between the duo has made some people ask whether they are related. But, that is not the case; Hasbulla and Khabib are not related, rather they are just friends.
One of Hasbullas videos that also helped bring him to the limelight was his pre-fight “press conference,” which featured another social media celebrity and singer, Abdu Rozik. Abdu is also 18 years old and has a short stature as Hasbualla.
He has the same growth condition as Hasbulla. The duo featured in Hasbulla’s video where both of them did some trash-talking and brawling.
Hasbulla frequently taunts UFC legends like Connor McGregor, and calling those big names out has further endeared him to the MMA community and social media users at large.
He also has photographs and videos of him alongside prominent Russian fighters posted on his social media. After videos of his training and escapades went viral, Hasbulla gained more popularity in the MMA world.
The fight between Hasbulla Magomedov and Abdu Rozik
Hasbulla and Abdu were to stage a fight. The rumoured MMA fight was organized by the Chechen MMA fighter, Ashab Tamaev. The fight was also heavily promoted by both parties and other people interested in it.
The pre-fight press conference was just like a major UFC one. The two called themselves names, physically challenged each other, launched personal attacks, and challenged each other’s shortcomings. The pre-fight video reportedly racked up as much as 9 million views in the first three days.
Since the news of the proposed bout broke out, many fans have been asking on social media when the Hasbulla vs Abdu Rozik fight will take place. However, a date has still not been set for that.

Some people have condemned the proposed fight between Hasbulla and Abdu Rozik. The Sports Association of Little People of Russia has tagged it as “unethical”.
“It is not even like a show fight- they get paid a lot of money, and it’s a show to make people laugh. There is nothing serious about this. This isn’t a sport. This is unethical, wrong from my point of view”, the Head of the association, Uliana Podpalnaya, said.
Perhaps this backlash is the reason the fight was delayed and later canceled.
However, it seemed people really wanted to see Hasbulla and Abdu Rozik fight. A recent report has it that the UFC offered $1.5 million for a fight between the duo. Earlier in October 2021, before the UFC made the offer, Hasbulla and Abdu Rozik created a scene in Abu Dhabi when they were spotted confronting each other at the ringside during UFC 267. All fingers are crossed as events between the two unfold.
