Henry Cejudo Says Hasbulla Has Been 'Sending Him Messages' About Fight


Henry Cejudo Says Hasbulla Has Been 'Sending Him Messages' About Fight

Hasbulla Magomedov has been sending MMA fighter Henry Cejudo a number of messages in order to try and make a fight between the pair happen.

Cejudo has been riding the wave of Hasbulla's ever increasing popularity in recent weeks, jokingly calling him out on social media, with the likes of Khabib Nurmagomedov also getting involved.

The Dagestani 18-year-old has risen to fame, becoming one of the most recognisable faces on the internet. He has already amassed a following of more than 2 million on Instagram.

Cejudo, who hasn't fought in over a year after retiring in May 2020, was the UFC bantamweight champion.


"Hasbulla got to get a visa to the US before he makes something happen," Henry Cejudo joked on Real Quick With Mike Swick Podcast.

"He wants to come over to the US Hasbulla has big plans. He wants to fight in Vegas. He's been sending me messages, so we'll see."

Cejudo, who would have quite the weight and size advantage over 18-year-old Hasbulla, admitted that he sees their interactions as business and nothing else.


"I don't take myself too seriously. It is what it is. Even my girl is like four inches taller than me too... It's just the sense of humour. I'm looking for different ways to troll. I see the business aspect, the business side of it."

With millions of online followers already, Cejudo believes that Hasbulla can continue to become one of the most recognisable faces in the world.

"I can see Hasbulla becoming a huge recognisable public figure across the world. If Hasbulla plays his cards right, he could be one of the most recognised faces in the world because how can you not like that guy. The dude has... I don't what the syndrome is but he's 18 or 19 years old, but it looks like he is five or six."

It is still unknown who Hasbulla will face in a fight, it was believed Abdu Rozik would be first but a bout between the pair has been delayed time and time again.
