Social media star Hasbulla signs 5-year deal with UFC amid Conor McGregor feud

Social media superstar Hasbulla has signed a five-year contract with UFC amid his ongoing feud with Conor McGregor.

The Russian internet star, thought to be 19-years-old, suffers with a genetic disorder that causes him to resemble childlike characteristics and stunted growth.

He's been spotted at ringside at the octagon on several occasions and has close ties with UFC head honcho Dana White, as well as McGregor's fierce rival, and fellow Dagestan native, Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Hasbulla won't actually be fighting as part of his five-year deal with UFC, but will instead carry out a number of promotional duties for the company, according to MMA reporter Igor Lazorin.

Earlier this month, McGregor hit out at Hasbulla on Twitter, branding him a "smelly little inbred" and vowing to "punt" him over a goalpost.

"I'd love to boot that little gimp Hasbulla over a goal post. I'm gonna make it my mission to score a 3 pointer with him one day, hon the GAA," the Irishman wrote in a seemingly unprovoked tweet.

Hasbulla then hit back, saying: "I don't follow bums… didn't know someone was running their mouth," before adding: "At least one of us kept an undefeated record. Hasbulla 1. McGregor 0."

He later taunted McGregor by sharing a video of his new pet chicken, writing: “This is my chicken named Conor McGregor. There's my beauty."

Hasbulla first went viral on TikTok in 2021 and has since garnered millions of followers on social media, thanks in part to his indominable charm whenever he's on camera.
