HASBULLA MAGOMEDOV has claimed he will FIGHT on a UFC card.
Hasbulla, who is believed to be 19, has posted to Instagram to confirm he has agreed to a deal to drop out in MMA promotion.
The 3ft 4in Russian is a viral internet sensation from Dagestan dubbed “Mini Khabib”.
And he shared his joy at his latest breakthrough.
He said: “The rumors are true. I’ve officially signed a contract to fight in the UFC! Details will be announced by the end of the year.
“Thanks to @ufc, @danawhite, @khabib_nurmagomedov, @sungurov_usa, @justinozuna and everyone who helped make this dream a reality.
“All my fans will soon be able to buy a Hasbulla fight set on UFC.com and hasbulla.com.”
Hasbulla and pal Khabib are expected to be in Islam Makhachev’s corner when he takes on Charles Oliveira at UFC 280 in Abu Dhabi next week.
And Chief Dana White is a big fan of Hasbullah, having met him at UFC 267 in the Middle East last October.
He is also aware of Hasbulla’s popularity and could use this to promote the company.

White said of Hasbulla, “So I’m going to tell you something. So the video he sent saying “Dana White I’m coming to Abu Dhabi and the UFC”. When I posted that with me on the plane and said, “I’m coming,” it was the biggest post I’ve ever posted.
“I have 6.7 million followers on Instagram, 6.4 million people watched this video. Is that fucking crazy?!”
And when asked if Hasbulla could fight, White replied, “I love the kid. Is there more than a zero percent chance? Yes.”
Hasbulla has a very good track record of going viral and is currently embroiled in a feud with Conor McGregor.
The pair first clashed after Hasbulla named his pet chicken after The Notorious.
In response, McGregor posted several photos mocking Hasbulla and revealed he would love to toss the 3ft 4in star over a goalpost.
