Hasbulla, 18, quickly rose to his status as an online sensation in 2021 thanks to his viral content on Instagram and TikTok.
The Dagestan-born star, also known as Mini Khabib, grabbed headlines over a supposed controversial fight with Tajik singer Abdu Rozik.
Rozik, 17, claims that he weighs 38lbs and is 1m tall, but his stunted growth was due to him suffering from rickets and his parents being unable to treat him due to their financial situation.
Hasbulla suffers from a growth hormone deficiency, but his high-pitched voice and childlike appearance have made waves across social media.
And Mini Khabib's popularity on social media has even caught the attention of Rogan, who claimed that every "time I open up Instagram I see a little video of him."
Speaking on The Joe Rogan Experience, Rogan said: "He's everywhere, though. They're doing an amazing job with him, I have to say.
"Mini Khabib. Whoever's handling him is doing a f*****g phenomenal job. Because he's like 18, right? He's everywhere."
The 53-year-old UFC colour commentator added: "It's incredible how quickly they've elevated this guy's platform so quickly.
"It's like that one little video caught fire, and it wasn't that long ago, and then all of a sudden there's this massive push behind him and I see him everywhere. Every time I open up Instagram, I see a little video of him."
Hasbulla hilariously taunted UFC superstar Conor McGregor by naming him as his next opponent after Rozik.
The Instagram and TikTok star insisted that he wanted to "punish" McGregor, saying the Irishman "talks too much."
Former UFC dual champ Henry Cejudo also revealed that Hasbulla has been "sending me messages" and how he "wants to fight in [Las] Vegas."
Meanwhile, YouTuber Logan Paul delivered a bizarre Hasbulla tribute ahead of his fight with Floyd Mayweather, calling Mini Khabib the "fiercest warrior the world has ever seen."
