Who is Hasbulla?
Hasbulla Magomedov is an internet star from the Republic of Dagestan. He is famous thanks to videos he posted to his Instagram account, starting in late 2020 – he now has 2.4 million followers, and TikTok videos of the social media sensation began going viral in 2021.
Dagestan is also where MMA great Khabib Nurmagomedov is from. In fact, the two are close friends as Hasbulla has even been dubbed ‘Mini Khabib’, due to Hasbulla re-enacting Khabib’s UFC 229 weigh-in.
What is Hasbulla famous for?
Much of the media attention Hasbulla quickly received was the result of him calling out Abdu Rozik for a fight. Rozik has a similar condition to Hasbulla (more on that in a bit) but the fight never went ahead, because the Sports Association of Little People of Russia, called the bout ‘unethical’
Regardless, Hasbulla’s social media stardom didn’t diminish, and even prominent podcaster Joe Rogan has talked about him during a podcast episode, saying “Mini Khabib. Whoever’s handling him is doing a f*****g phenomenal job. Because he’s like 18, right? He’s everywhere.”
Hasbulla has even called out Irish MMA fighter Conor McGregor for a fight, saying “I want to punish this one [Conor McGregor]. He talks too much.”
Indeed, during Hasbulla’s earlier social media days, he debuted his hot-headed nature, before displaying his interest in MMA. He now regularly posts images of himself in exotic locations, such as Dubai, along with photos of himself standing next to an array of supercars, as well as images of himself with Khabib Nurmagomedov
How old is Hasbulla?
Hasbulla is 19-years-old as of 2022. Many may presume he is much younger, due to his small stature and high-pitched voice, but this is the result of his dwarfism.
What Is Hasbulla’s condition?
Hasbulla was born with Growth Hormone Deficiency (GHD) otherwise known as dwarfism, which is why many people may first assume he is a lot younger than his birth certificate would otherwise suggest.
How tall is Hasbulla?
Because Hasbulla has dwarfism, he is only about one metre, 3′ 3″ tall.
It’s also claimed he weighs around 16kgs, or 2.5 stone.
What Is Hasbulla’s Net Worth?
Thanks to his surge in social media stardom, Hasbulla’s net worth is said to be around $100,000. However, while his fight with Abdu Rozik hasn’t yet gone ahead, Hasbulla is still hoping it will happen one day – something he says in his first-ever interview with Barstool Sports. If that fight does go ahead, his net worth is expected to increase.
Hasbulla recently sat down with Barstool Sports for their Sundae Conversation segment with host Caleb Pressley. It is the first time Hasbulla has ever conducted a one one one interview.
During the interview, Hasbulla revealed he has a passion for cars, admitting he likes tuning them up and drifting. He also displays his hot-headiness once again, claiming that host Caleb Pressley’s “brain isn’t fully developed,” because he likes watching cartoons.
He also reveals he’s a cat guy, preferring them to dogs.
