A mock press conference video with social media personality Abdu Rozik is also a very popular video of Hasbulla’s.
Rozik, 19, has a similar growth disorder which is believed to be GHD – Growth Hormone Deficiency.
It was thought that a fight between the two was being organised by Chechen MMA fighter Asxab Tamaev, however, the fight did not go ahead.
The head of the Russian Dwarf Athletic Association described the fight as “unethical and wrong.”
She said in a statement that the fight was merely planned to make people laugh and that it would only be taken seriously if martial arts with dwarfism is made a Paralympic sport.

Hasbulla is known to be close friends with UFC fighter, Khabib Nurmagomedov.
The pair have often been seen in videos with one another on TikTok and have reportedly struck up a friendship.
His subsequent relationship with the UFC ace has sparked questions about Hasbulla and his ambitions in the boxing world.
Hasbulla answered, “I want to punish this one [Conor McGregor]. He talks too much.”
Although, he did manage to get inside a cage back in 2022 when he went to watch a fight in Abu Dhabi.
Footage of Hasbulla engaging in a playfight with a friend circulated on Twitter with MMA fans stating he’s started his career 1-0.

They claim to have done this in celebration of a friend’s wedding in Dagestan, Russia.
Local reports claim that the group was taken into custody and charged with administrative violations.
Hasbulla’s official Twitter account reposted a poster, writing: “#FreeBulla” on Monday evening following his arrest.
