WHO IS HASBULLA MAGOMEDOV?
Hasbulla Magomedov is a pint-sized social media star who has taken the world by storm thanks to his unique appearance, fighting talk, bravado and apparent confidence in his ability to square up to the biggest names in combat sports.
Hasbulla stands 3ft 4in (99cm) tall and has a rare genetic disorder that gives him characteristics such as stunted growth and a high-pitched voice. Although it has not been officially confirmed, it is believed that he has a form of dwarfism.
He first went viral when he was linked to fight with fellow social media personality, Abdu Rozik, who has a similar growth disorder, but nothing materialised after they squared off in a mock press conference. Since then, Hasbulla has amassed more than three billion views on TikTok.
