Hasbulla Finally Sat Down For His First Ever Interview And It Was Wild
| Last updated
Hasbulla has finally sat down for a formal interview... and it is just as bonkers as you'd imagine.
The fiery 19-year-old sensation sat down with Barstool Sports in Dubai, and chatted about everything: from his love of cars, to a career in politics, and even dumped some serious shade on football icon Cristiano Ronaldo.
Hasbulla, nicknamed 'Mini Khabib' after the now-retired UFC star Khabib Nurmagomedov, did not hold back when asked about his thoughts on the Manchester United star.
“I could not care less about Ronaldo. I am more famous than him," the three-foot-three firecracker boasted.
"The only thing he does in a match is pass around the ball.”
While he might not be tall, one thing the blogger and TikTok star from Makhachkala has is confidence.
When asked about his approach to hitting the gym, he said 'I don’t pump iron, I am iron' and spoke of carrying a knife.
“When I carry the blade, people keep their mouth shut," he said, before adding that he doesn't need one anymore thanks to his posse.
"Now I have my brothers with me… better than a knife.”
That doesn't mean the Russian social media star is any more temperate than before he shot to fame.
He even referred to his hot temper as his greatest weakness.
“When people try to insult me, I’m quick to clap back and then it’s beef," he told Barstool Sports.
One of the most surprising things to come out of his first-ever sit down interview was Hasbulla's political aspirations.
It turns out he's keen to trade in the mixed martial arts ring for the parliamentary floor.
“I want to become Minister of Internal Affairs for [the Russian republic of] Dagestan… first I’ll find my haters and make them panic," he said, putting his classic fiery temper on display once again.
He even outlaid his first policy, echoing previous statements made to Barstool Sports about his love of cars.
"I’ll slow down the speed limit within the city, but increase it on the highway," Hasbulla said.
"All the speed cameras are coming down.”
Husbulla shot to fame after going viral in 2020 on Instagram. He then became a near-instant cult hero in the MMA community.
He became notorious after announcing a fight with Abdu Rozik, however nothing has yet materialised.
Both Rozik and Hasbulla are believed to have a Growth Hormone Deficiency (GHD), more commonly known as dwarfism.
The deficiency is what can give people with the condition stunted growth and a child-like appearance and voice.
