Since his first ‘fight’ with Abdu Rozik, who also has a similar growth disorder, the 19-year-old Russian native has continued to rise through the ranks and now.
Hasbulla Magomedov has signed a media deal with the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).
Hasbulla Magomedov, who suffers from a form of dwarfism, has become one of the biggest names on social media, with 3.2 million followers on Instagram and more than 2 billion views on TikTok.
Combat sports journalist Igor Lazorin took to Instagram to report on the 19-year-old’s next steps.
Lazorin uploaded a snapshot of himself and Hasbulla, along with the caption: “Hasbulla signed a five-year deal with the UFC! So far on the plan: attend tournaments, media activity.
“We are not going to talk about the amounts in detail, but there they are such that many fighters do not receive that much. Hasbulla signed a 5-year contract with the UFC! No fights yet, but…”
The post has since generated a lot of anticipation, but the UFC has yet to confirm the deal with the reported media.
Habulla, who hails from Dagestan, has since made some very famous acquaintances in recent years, including the likes of former UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, whom he calls his brother.
Dubbed as a ‘Mini Khabib’, Hasbulla and Khabib seem to have quite an interesting friendship, especially after the 19-year-old knocked out the undefeated champion.
And Khabib isn’t the only UFC fighter Hasbulla has since struck up a relationship with.
A little less friendly and certainly a lot more hostile, the news comes right in the middle of the ongoing fight between Hasbulla and UFC star Conor McGregor.
