Dagestani internet icon Hasbulla Magomedov, has become latest and greatest sensation of the combat sports community, all courtesy to his much anticipated upcoming fight against Kazakhstani rapper Abdu Rozik.

The fight is promoted by Dagestani MMA fighter Asxab Tamaev aka the “Russian KGB Hulk”, who is often seen sharing the 18-year-old TikToker’s clips across multiple social media platforms and is the reason why Hasbulla has become a trending topic in the MMA fandom.

The Hasbulla vs Rozik fight has been on the talks for weeks and amidst the buildup to the fight, there wasn’t really a determined date and place for the bout, although Tamaev himself recently hinted that the fight is only three to four days away.

However, even before he faces Rozik, Hasbulla is already setting his focus on his next opponent, and its none other than former UFC double champion and one of the greatest MMA fighters of all time, Conor McGregor and has wished to “humble” the Irishman.

In a recent skit shared on his YouTube channel titled “Hasbulla vs Abdurozik. 20.000.000$ UFC fight”, Tamaev featured Hasbulla Magomedov in a heated conversation about the latter’s next opponent after his fight against Rozik is done and dusted.

With the options of Logan Paul, Henry Cejudo and Conor McGregor presented to him, Hasbulla did not hesitate to pick the Irishman and insisted that he was going to “punish” Conor despite the size difference.

“I want to punish this one (Conor McGregor). He talks too much,” said Hasbulla, “Yes. I want to punish him.”

Conor has been humbled once already, dating back to 2018 when he was defeated by the then UFC lightweight titleholder Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 via a 4th round submission, putting an end to their months of discord prior to the fight.

Now, “Mini Khabib” Hasbulla Magomedov maintains a cordial relation with Khabib himself. The two have been seen together in restaurants clicking pictures, and Khabib even shared a short clip of Hasbulla on his official Instagram back in April.

This will likely come off as a deja vu for Conor’s fans as the “Mystic Mac”, who was once thrashed by the Russian, is now being challenged in the same manner by his miniature version.
