Hasbulla Magomedov has aimed a brutal dig at Conor McGregor by deciding to name his pet chicken after the UFC megastar.
Internet sensation Hasbulla has made no secret of his desire to be involved in a big-money fight, calling out some huge names in the combat sports world.
Conor McGregor is one of the many fighters on Hasbulla's hit list and it seems the Russian social media star has already began trolling the Irishman.
Hasbulla has now decided to call his chicken 'Conor McGregor'.
In footage posted online, Hasbulla films his new pet, saying: "This is my chicken, named Conor McGregor. There's my beauty."
Hasbulla is good friends with McGregor's arch-rival Khabib Nurmagomedov, so much so that he was originally dubbed 'Mini Khabib' when he first burst onto the scene.
The two pals are from the same region of Russia too and have both become national heroes in their own right.
So to throw his support behind his fellow countryman, Hasbulla has taken aim at McGregor.

It's not the first time he has done so either.
Hasbulla has previously called out the Irishman to a fight while also mocking him at any opportunity he gets.
After McGregor's defeat to Dustin Poirier at UFC 264, where he suffered a devastating leg break, Hasbulla posted a screenshot of the injury and accompanied it with a bunch of laughing emojis.
It comes as no surprise to learn that McGregor has refused to respond to the online taunts with the Irishman far more focused on his return to the octagon after 13 months out of action.
"Boxing is my first love in combat sports. I had such a great time the last time I was out there," he recently told Sky Sports.
"Obviously, my return will be in the octagon for UFC - that story is far from over, in fact it's just being written, it is just the beginning.
"But, boxing, for sure I will grace the squared circle again in the future."
He added: "The body is doing good. We are going to up the training bit by bit.
"I have another CT scan in the coming days and then I will be clear to kick.
"Once I can kick and grapple, I will be back in no time. Boxing training is going well, strength training. I am excited to get back."
