Hasbulla Magomedov Confirms First Fight And Reveals His Ultimate Opponent Is Conor McGregor

Hasbulla Magomedov has booked his first official fight against Abdu Rozik and it's happening in a matter of days.

The viral sensation has racked up a massive online following and there has been a lot of people wondering when he will finally put his training to use.

The 18-year-old Russian, who has been dubbed 'Mini Khabib' by his followers, will fight Rozik, a 17-year-old Tajik singer this week.

Mixed martial artist Asxab Tamaev, said to be the 'promoter' of the bout, has seemingly confirmed the two will clash in four days.

On Instagram, he wrote: "Everyone asks when the fight will take place!! Khasbulla and Abdrouzik [sic] needed time to prepare. They are READY. In 3-4 days there will be a BATTLE!"

As we await details of the highly anticipated fight, Hasbulla has revealed who his ultimate opponent is: Conor McGregor.

The teen fighter believes he'd absolutely wipe the floor with Conor, too.

In fact, he said that he'd 'punish' the Irish UFC fighter.

In a skit released by Asxab Tamaev, he was asked who he would like to fight between Logan Paul, McGregor, and American mixed martial artist Henry Cejudo.

Hasbulla said: "I want to punish this one [Conor McGregor]. He talks too much."

He was then asked if he'd agree to the fight even though he is significantly smaller than McGregor, Magomedov responded: "Yes, I want to punish him."

Of course, it's probably not ever going to happen... but if it were to go ahead, it would have to be under exhibition rules, because there's surely no weight at which the pair could meet that would be properly sanctioned.

Hasbulla is about one metre tall, around three feet and three inches, and weighs in at roughly 15.8 kilograms.

He has a condition that is known as Growth Hormone Deficiency or GHD.

Both he and arch-nemesis Abdu Rozik were born with the condition, which affects the pituitary gland - responsible for producing many of the hormones found in the body.

The condition is also sometimes known as pituitary dwarfism, and makes children appear short in stature but with normal body proportions.

It can be present when a child is born, or can develop later on.
