Hasbulla Magomedov Inks Five-Year Deal With UFC
According to MMA writer Igor Lazorin, Hasbulla Magomedov has allegedly signed a five-year contract with the UFC.
Russian social media star Hasbulla, popularly nicknamed “little Khabib,” won’t be competing in the promotion, but will instead help promote upcoming fights and events.
“This is a blast from the face!” Lazorin posted on Instagram.
“Hasbulla 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…”

UFC President Dana was asked in a Bar Stool Sports interview about his meeting with Hasbulla and whether or not there was a potential that “mini Khabib” would make an appearance inside the octagon.
White said, “I love the kid. Is there more than a zero percent chance? Yes.”.
Hasbulla – who has a rare genetic disorder that affects his growth and pitch of voice — has attended multiple UFC events. He was in attendance at UFC 267 in Abu Dhabi in October last year and had the same luxury of watching Petr Yan defeat Cory Sandhagen and Glover Teixeira defeat Jan Blachowicz cage side.
Hasbulla has been in MMA news recently due to his Twitter exchange with Conor McGregor. Mini-Khabib called McGregor a “bum,” which prompted the Notorious to threaten to “punt” him in a series of since-deleted tweets.
