Internet sensation Hasbulla Magomedov has signed a five-year deal with the Ultimate Fighting Championship ( U FC), which is said to be 'worth more than a lot of fighters' in the UFC. As a part of his contract, the Russian star, who has a form of dwarfism, will attend tournaments and participate in media activities of the UFC.
Hasbulla came to limelight by taunting Irish fighter Conor McGregor after his humiliating defeat against undisputed Russian champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.
UFC reporter Igor Lazorin confirmed the news through his Instagram post where he mentioned that Hasbulla won't be fighting in the octagon. He wrote, "This is a blast from the face! Husbick signed a five year contract with UFC! So far in the plan - attending tournaments, media activity. We will not talk about the amounts in detail, but there they are such that many fighters do not get that much. Hasbulla signed 5 year contract with UFC! No fights yet, but..."
After UFC fighter Conor McGregor posted an offensive picture of him holding a toy that has Hasbulla's face on it, the 19-year-old social media star asked UFC chief Dana White to let him face Conor in the octagon. He tweeted, "Hey uncle @danawhite and @ufc please make it happen, let me eat this chicken @TheNotoriousMMA. Im hungry, I’ll smash him with my mountain spirit. My brother @TeamKhabib smashed him and all his team, now is my time to rise!👊🏽 #HasbullaTime #CantDeleteMyTweetsConor.
"The 19-year-old Hasbulla was also involved in trash-talking and multiple altercations with fellow social celebrity 18-year-old Abdu Rozik.
