If you're into combat sports or spend any time on TikTok, then you've probably come across Hasbulla Magomedov. Even if you're not into those things, you'll have undoubtedly heard the name at the very least. The man has become an overnight internet sensation this year. Here's everything you need to know about him.
Hasbulla's level of fame has reached such heights that not only has Joe Rogan spoken about his popularity on his podcast, but he has been called out by a number of top level stars, from Logan Paul to MMA fighter Rafael Fiziev. Basically, everyone wants the Hasbulla clout.
Here's what you need to know about Hasbulla Magomedov.
Hasbulla Magomedov is a star from Dagestan. He's been posting content to Instagram, where he has more than 2 million followers, since November 2020 and went viral on TikTok in 2021. He mostly posts pranks and spoof videos about MMA.
The teenager recently landed himself in hot water, being banned by Instagram after making threats to a woman who uploaded a video of his sister. Hasbulla reportedly wrote: "I will not leave this girl alive until she apologises to the whole of Instagram, because she filmed a video of my sister and posted it for the entire Instagram."
Hasbulla has since denied the reports and told fans that he is taking a break from social media in general.
He may look younger than he actually is, but you may be surprised to learn that Hasbulla is actually 19-years-old. It's believed he has a form of dwarfism, which accounts for his stature and high-pitched voice. Hasbulla was born in 2003, though his specific birthday isn't public information at present.
The 19-year-old is about one meter tall or 3' 3" in height.
It is also suggested that he weighs around 16 kilos, the equivalent to just 2.5 stone.
Hasbulla is well-known within the MMA community and is nicknamed 'Mini Khabib' after a video he made reenacting Khabib Nurmagomedov's iconic UFC weigh-in. The two have since developed a friendship and frequently appear in videos together.
Their friendship has led some to ask whether Hasbulla and Khabib are related, though we can confirm that isn't the case.
The 19-year-old's most popular video to date is his pre-fight 'press conference' featuring fellow social celebrity Abdu Rozik, 18, where the two trash-talked and 'brawled'.
The rumoured MMA fight between Hasbulla and Abdu, which was being organised by Chechen MMA fighter Ashab Tamaev, was promoted heavily by all involved. This led to a lot of fans on social media asking when is the Hasbulla vs Abdu Rozik fight, but a date still has yet to transpire.
The idea of the fight has been condemned in some circles with the Sports Association of Little People of Russia branding the fight "unethical".
It's unclear whether this backlash is what has lead to the delay or possibly even cancellation of the bout.
As of yet, it has not been revealed what Hasbulla's net worth is.
However, with his newfound fame, the 19-year-old's wealth is almost certainly expected to rise significantly.
Hasbulla has been seen in skit videos demanding millions of dollars in cash for his newly found fame and upcoming potential fights, so he clearly has ambition to rise to the top.
Although it has not yet been officially confirmed, it is believed that Hasbulla has a form of dwarfism.
The genetic disorder gives him childlike characteristics such as stunted growth and a high-pitched voice.
Dwarfism affects growth and causes other physical problems, like bowed legs or an unusually curved spine. This can be caused by the body not producing enough of the growth hormone, although genes can also play a part in it, according to the NHS.
The majority of sufferers of dwarfism are able to live normal, healthy lives.
Hasbulla has gained a huge following on Instagram in 2021, with over 2 million followers already.
On 3rd December 2021, Russian media reported that the internet sensation had been suspended from the platform after sending 'vile death threats' to a woman on there.
The identity of Hasbulla's parents is not known, but Twitter fan account @HasbullaHive says he does have a brother who can be seen in the below tweet.

Following the Instagram controversey in December 2021, Hasbulla supposedly has a sister too, and the woman he directed the vile abuse towards on there had posted a video of his sister. Again, not much is known about their identity.
