If you're into combat sports or spend any time on TikTok, then you've probably come across Hasbulla Magomedov. He's taken the internet by storm in recent months. Here's what 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 was actually called out by Rafael Fiziev, an MMA fighter immediately after his win at UFC 265.
Hasbulla Magomedov is a blogger from Dagestan. He's been posting content to Instagram since November 2020 and went viral on TikTok in 2021. He mostly posts pranks and spoof videos about MMA.
He may look younger than he actually is, but you may be surprised to learn that Hasbulla is actually 18-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 18-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 confirm that isn't the case.
The 18-year-old's most popular video to date is his pre-fight 'press conference' featuring fellow social celebrity Abdu Rozik, also 18, where the two trash-talked and 'brawled'.
The rumoured MMA fight between Hasbulla and Abdu, which is being organised by Chechen MMA fighter Ashab Tamaev, has been 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 firm date 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 in the proposed 'fight', or if the fight was never a reality.
As of yet, it has not been revealed what Hasbulla's net worth is.
However, with his newfound fame, the 18-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 doesn't want to ambition.
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. His Instagram handle is 'hasbulla.magadedov'.
