Hasbulla Magomedov throws hands with former world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson
| Last updated
Habulla Magomedov managed to land a shot on former world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson, before Iron Mike reacted like only he could.
Magomedov is well known for his connections to UFC, in fact the short man with the big attitude has even signed a contract with Dana White's promotion.
He's often interacted with fellow Russian Khabib Nurmagomedov, which might be why he's got it in for Conor McGregor, who's been warned about the 'problems' he could be caused by Hasbulla.
The 20-year-old doesn't just stick to MMA however, with fans believing that he's given away his allegiances when it comes to football's biggest debate, Messi or Ronaldo.
And now he's getting involved in boxing, after he threw hands with Tyson during a recent recording of the American's podcast, 'Hotboxin,' as you can see in the video below.
Hasbulla throws a few shots, but Iron Mike is well covered up, as he bobs his head side to side to avoid being caught by a big shot.
However, he pauses for a moment when his 'opponent' catches him on the side of his head, and suddenly his blocking doesn't look so good.
The Russian then starts reigning down bombs through the gap in the 56-year-old's guard and can be seen landing several shots down the middle.
And that's when the former champ turns things dirty, as he did when he knew he was losing to Evander Holyfield in their 1997 WBA world title rematch.
Knowing that things are starting to go wrong for him, the Baddest Man on the Planet picks up Hasbulla, as if he were a mere child, and attempts to bite his ear.
That's almost exactly the type of behaviour that saw him disqualified against Holyfield all those years ago, having lost the first fight in an 11th round stoppage.
Hasbulla might seem like an easy opponent for Tyson, but he could actually face a much easier one, in the shape of Jake Paul.
Oh sure, the Problem Child may have some wins on his professional record, but he has lost to relative novice Tommy Fury not that long ago.
Before that loss, the social media star claimed he could beat the former heavyweight in a fight, boasting that he would 'destroy' the Hangover star.
He did at least acknowledge that he suffers from 'delusional optimism,' and he may now row back on wanting to face Tyson, considering he could lose his surname over it...
