Popular tiktoker Hasbullacan be heard shouting pretty loud to support Muhammad Mokaev at UFC 280. The viral sensation was pretty much as excited as one can be during the biggest UFC event this year.
Hasbulla Magomedov appears younger than he is supposed to be. This is because the 20-year-old suffers from dwarfism. He has a massive social media following and has become more and more popular in the world of mixed martial arts. It’s all due to his friendship with Khabib Nurmagomedov and lightweight champion Islam Makhachev.
His popularity has gone mainstream and he often films sketches with world’s biggest sportstars including those that have nothing to do with MMA. This is likely how Hasbulla earned himself a UFC contract (albeit likely as a promoter).
The pair worked out a deal and recently released a Hasbulla jersey. Though, fans were disappointed knowing how overpriced the item is. They also announced officially that Hasbulla has joined the UFC.
Hasbullah was obviously invited to UFC 280 in Abu Dhabi, where his friend Islam Makhachev was competing for the vacant lightweight belt against Charles Oliveira. Hasbullah was sitting on the VVIP seat that is pretty close to the octagon.
During the event, his voice can be heard supporting Muhammad Mokaev. The 22-year-old Russian was featured on the preliminary card against Malcolm Gordon. The action continued until the third round and Mokaev was announced as the winner via unanimous decision. During the fight, fans caught Hasbullah’s voice sending encouragement to his countryman.
Fans have been jumping to Twitter to talk about it.
Was that Hasbulla?😭😭

“I knew I wasn’t the only one that heard that.”
“That was the 75 pound junior heavyweight champion Hasbi!”
“How could you not love that sweet voice.”
“Who else would it be?”
