Images and videos of a little person have been circulating on social media for the past few weeks. On social media, Hasbulla Magomedov is everywhere. While he appears to be a 5-year-old, there is a great deal about him that is unclear.
You can't get away from "Mini Khabib" right now. From clips of his fight with fellow little person Abdu Rozik to the funny videos of him eating a burger that seems to have been on everyone's FYP.
Magomedov, often known as "Mini Khabib," is a Russian fighter whose videos have gone viral on social media. Hasbulla, an 18-year-old blogger from Makhachkala, Russia, has a genetic abnormality that causes him to have a juvenile appearance.
Where is he from and why the name "Mini Khabib"?
With a population of over 600,000 people, Makhachkala is a big Russian city on the Caspian Sea. There have been several renowned Russian figures who have lived there, including fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov, who was the inspiration for the nickname "Mini Khabib."
Hasbulla Magomedov was dubbed "Mini Khabib" since he is from Dagestan, which is also Khabib's home country.. 'General Hasbulla,' as he is known, looks eerily like Khabib Nurmagomedov and has been seen with the former UFC lightweight champion on multiple occasions.
The look of Hasbulla Magomedov is related to a rare condition.
Hasbulla Magomedov, an 18-year-old with a genetic disease that stopped him from developing at a young age, is said to stand three feet and four inches tall. He weighs roughly 16kg (2.5 stone), and the disease has affected his voice, which has become unusually high.
Although his ailment has not been confirmed, it is believed that he suffers from a type of dwarfism. He has been diagnosed with GHD (Growth Hormone Deficiency), often known as dwarfism, according to reports.
Who is Abdu Rozik?
Abdu Rozik is a Tajik vocalist who holds the world record for being the smallest singer. Abdu Rozik, a Tajik native, rose to prominence as a result of his particular gift for singing Tajik rap songs. His main presence can be seen on the Avlod media YouTube channel, which has over 350k subscribers.
Abdu Rozik is currently 18 years old, according to public data, albeit his actual birth date is unknown. Rozik was born in the village of Gishdarva in the Panjakent district of Tajikistan in 2003 to a gardener's family.
Rozik had rickets as a child, and his parents were unable to treat him due to a lack of financial resources. His growth was eventually stunted as a result of this.
Is Hasbulla Magomedov an MMA fighter?
Despite the fact that Hasbulla Magomedov is not into mixed martial arts, he has recently become a cult figure in the sport when social media reports of his imminent battle appeared. According to sources, Hasbulla Magomedov will face Abdu Rozik, an 18-year-old Tajik rapper, in an MMA match.
On May 15, Hasbulla's Instagram account announced the battle between him and Rozik, but no date has been set for the MMA fight. The buzz grew even further when the two were later seen in a YouTube video exchanging furious remarks. The bout between Hasbulla Magomedov and Abdu Rozik is reportedly being organized by Chechen MMA fighter Asxab Tamaev, however, this has yet to be confirmed.
Although, Logan Paul who recently fought Floyd Mayweather on Sunday in a Show fight is also a Hasbulla fan. "I know as long as I channel my inner Hasbulla, the greatest fighter of our time, we are going to get the job done," Paul recently said. "I'm channeling him. The fiercest warrior the world has ever seen. We love Hasbulla. I want him to walk out with me. Give me Hasbulla!"
Criticism for the fight
The fight has sparked outrage among campaigners. Uliana Podpalnaya, the president of the Russian Dwarf Athletic Association, told Gazeta that the spectacle was intended to make people laugh.
"It's not like even a show fight - they get paid a lot of money and it's a show to make people laugh," she said. "There is nothing serious about this, this is not a sport. This is unethical, wrong, from my point of view."
