Khabib Nurmagomedov Asked For Hasbulla Vs Henry Cejudo Prediction, UFC Legend Gives Perfect Response
| Last updated
UFC legend Khabib Nurmagomedov put Henry Cejudo in his place by hilariously predicting that TikTok sensation Hasbulla Magomedov would destroy him in a fight.
Cejudo, who retired from MMA in 2020, previously claimed that Hasbulla had "been sending me messages" in the hopes of securing a fight.
Hasbulla, AKA Mini Khabib, has become a viral hit on both TikTok and Instagram thanks to his child-like appearance and high-pitched voice.
The Dagestan star, who is believed to be 18 years old, has even called out Khabib's fierce rival Conor McGregor for a fight.
Khabib, 32, recently made an appearance on Hotboxin' with Mike Tyson alongside Iron Mike, Cejudo and MMA manager Ali Abdelaziz.
While the episode hasn't been posted online, a post-show segment has emerged of the quartet posing for photos.
When Khabib prepared to pose for a photo with Tyson, an ESNEWS reporter asked the UFC legend who wins in a potential fight between Cejudo and Hasbulla.
The Eagle wasted no time in backing Mini Khabib to "smash" Cejudo, which was met with laughter from the former MMA fighter and Abdelaziz.
"Hasbulla is gonna smash this guy," Khabib hilariously responded.
One fan posted: "Hasbulla vs Cejudo would be legendary."
While another wrote: "I wanna see Mike bring Hasbulla [on] to the podcast!"
Someone else said: "Hasbulla is on [a] different level."
And a fourth added: "Hasbulla beats Triple C -- no doubt about it."
UFC legend Joe Rogan has admitted that he was left in awe at Hasbulla's rise to stardom, saying it is "incredible how quickly they've elevated" him to success.
Cejudo has also suggested that Mini Khabib has what it takes to become "one of the most recognised faces in the world."
The 34-year-old explained: "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."
