Hasbulla Magomedov Calls Out UFC Superstar Conor McGregor For A Fight

Viral sensation Hasbulla Magomedov believes that he should be the next in line to fight against former two-weight MMA champion Conor McGregor.

Oh, the 18-year-old believes that he'd absolutely wipe the floor with Conor, too. In fact, he said that he'd 'punish' the Irish UFC fighter.

Let's start at the very beginning though, because there will no doubt be some people wondering who Hasbulla actually is.

If you were to just take him at face value, you might believe that he was a child, but he's actually an 18-year-old with a condition that means he's really small and has child-like features.

He is a blogger from Dagestan who shot into the public eye when it was announced that he'd fight another man with a similar condition, 17-year-old Abdu Rozik.

Unfortunately for the pair, that fight never went ahead because there was uproar from the Sports Association of Little People of Russia, who called the bout 'unethical'.

One has to wonder what they'd make of a potential bout between Hasbulla and McGregor.

In a skit released by Asxab Tamaev, an MMA fighter acting as promoter for 'Mini Khabib' Hasbulla, he was asked who he would like to fight for his next bout.

The choice was 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 just two and a half stones.

Conor would have to cut a whole heap of weight - or Hasbulla gain a ridiculous amount - for that to become possible.

Hasbulla 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.
