Weighing in at 32 kg (70.5 lbs), Tain was featured on the latest Instagram clip of Hasbulla’s promoter and Dagestani MMA fighter Asxab Tamaev aka the “Russian KGB Hulk”, who revealed that the new fighter has been training hard to meet “Mini Khabib” in the cage.

On the Instagram post, Tamaev asked the netizens if the new challenger was worthy enough to lock horns against ‘Hasbik’ or not, “He really shows himself in battle! Give him the opportunity or not? 😄What do you think?”

Tamaev had a conversation with Tain on his official YouTube channel, as well as wrote, “Friends, today I interviewed the new fighter, Tain. During the conversation, he challenged Hasbulla and commented on the upcoming fight between Abdurozik and Hasbik.”

With an actual UFC fighter-like build and muscle definition, its appears that Tain is indeed giving his all to have his face off against the latest and greatest of the MMA fandom, Hasbulla.

Tain is not the first fighter other than Rozik to challenge ‘Mini Khabib’

Hasbulla’s popularity among the MMA community has gotten him a challenge right from none other than former UFC Flyweight and Bantamweight Champion Henry Cejudo, who threatened the Russian teenager in his mother tongue.

However, the latter received support from none other than former UFC lightweight champion and a legend in the sport, Khabib Nurmagomedov himself.

Hasbulla vs Abdu Rozik fight hands in uncertainty

Amidst the skyrocketing popularity that Hasbulla Magomedov has garnered among the mixed martial arts community in recent times, the fight that originally made him famous, an MMA bout against Tajik rapper and internet star Abdu Rozik, has still gained no confirmation.

Even though last week Tamaev himself gave word that the fight was ready to happen within three to four days, the much hyped bout is yet to get a definitive date and venue.

What do you think about Hasbulla’s newest rival Tain? Will the fight happen before Rozik? Let us know in the comments.
