And while he is unlikely to follow in his compatriot’s footsteps by fighting in the octagon, he is set to have a role in the UFC.

According to MMA reporter Igor Lazorin, Hasbulla has put pen to paper on a five-year deal with the organisation.

Lazorin announced the news on Instagram saying: “Hasbulla signed a five year contract with UFC! So far in the plan – attending tournaments, media activity.

“We will not talk about the amounts in detail, but there they are such that many fighters do not get that much. Hasbulla signed 5 year contract with UFC! No fights yet, but…”

UFC chief Dana White is a huge fan of Hasbullah after meeting him at UFC 267 in Abu Dhabi last October.

He is also aware Hasbulla’s popularity and could use that to help promote fights.

White said of Hasbulla: “So I’m going to tell you something. So the video that he sent saying ‘Dana White I’m coming to Abu Dhabi and UFC’, so when I posted that with me on the plane saying ‘I’m coming’, it’s the biggest post that I’ve ever posted.

“I have 6.7 million followers on Instagram, 6.4 million people watched that video. Is that f***ing crazy?!”


And when asked if Hasbulla could fight, White answered: “I love the kid. Is there more than a zero percent chance? Yes.”

Hasbulla has a very good track record for going viral and is currently involved in a feud with Conor McGregor.

The pair first clashed after Hasbulla named his pet chicken after The Notorious.

In response Mcgregor has posted several photos mocking Hasbulla and revealed he would love to punt the 3ft4in star over a goalpost.
