Hasbulla Confirms He Will Fight In The UFC
In possibly one of the maddest stories of the year so far, Hasbulla Magomedov has confirmed that he has officially signed with the UFC.
The social media sensation suffers from a form of dwarfism, but has not let that get in the way of him living his dream and fighting in the UFC octagon. The 20-year-old has signed a five year contract with the company.
Hasbulla has thanked UFC President, Dana White, along with fellow Dagestan native, Khabib Nurmagomedov, for making his dream become a reality in signing for the biggest mixed martial arts organisation in the world.
