The internet has been left wondering why Hasbulla Magomedov looks so much younger than he actually is.
The internet celebrity from Russia looks both young and old, and many of his fans can’t believe he is a young adult.
Hasbulla first rose to fame in 2021 and has become quite the star, along with his arch nemesis Abdu Rozik.
With over six million Instagram followers and 4.7 billion views on TikTok, he built his platform by mocking MMA content.
He soon picked up the name ‘Mini Khabib’ after recreating the pro MMA fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov’s iconic weigh-in.
Hasbulla is thought to be around three feet and four inches tall and his exact date of birth is unknown, as he is thought to be 20.
But people were confused once again when Hasbulla claimed during a tour of Australia last year that he was ‘too young’ to date or think about marriage.
Although he hasn’t shared any reasons himself, a doctor previously said that he may have a rare genetic condition called Growth Hormone Deficiency (GHD).
Dr. Karan Raj suggested that Hasbulla and Abdu were born with the condition that happens when the brain's pituitary gland, which is responsible for producing most of the body's hormones, can't produce growth hormones.
The cause of growth hormone deficiency can sometimes be unclear, however, it is not thought to be inherited.
It may be present at birth or develop later in childhood and is more common in males than females, although more research is needed to understand why this is the case.
GHD is diagnosed using blood tests to measure the levels of certain hormones within the blood.
The condition is also known as dwarfism or pituitary dwarfism and can make children appear short in stature but with normal body proportions.
Dr Raj explains how medicine and science is yet to come up with a decent answer about how or why GHD occurs, however, he did say that it can be treated if it is addressed early enough.
Children with the GHD can receive Human Growth Hormone (HGH) injections to encourage their bodies to grow larger and longer, but the procedure can be expensive.
The injections have to be administered every day and effects can usually be seen around three to four months later.
Dr Raj then explains in his video that this happened to football star Lionel Messi, who was diagnosed with Growth Hormone deficiency at 10 years old.
