Former UFC double champ Henry Cejudo has jokingly told Hasbulla to sign the contract after the pair were filmed pretending to be fighting.
Hasbulla Magomedov became a social media star after his TikTok and YouTube videos went viral during the height of COVID-19 and the worldwide lockdown in 2020.
Nicknamed ‘Mini Khabib’ due to his friendship with Khabib Nurmagomedov, the 19-year-old recently struck a marketing deal with the UFC after meeting Dana White in Abu Dhabi. Hasbulla has since appeared at multiple events and was cageside during UFC 280’s stunning card last month.
In a video uploaded to his Twitter account, Cejudo joked that their fight contained graphic content and hoped to meet Hasbulla in the octagon soon:
“WARNING: GRAPHC CONTENT. Here’s footage of @Hasbulla_NFT blatantly assaulting me. I won’t press charges as long as he SIGNS THE DAMN CONTRACT. It’s time to settle this once and for all. I’M COMING FOR YOU HASBULLA!!”
Henry Cejudo isn’t the only UFC fighter who has been trolled by Hasbulla. Featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski was recently the butt of the joke after the 19-year-old slammed a burger into the face of ‘The Great’.
In a video uploaded to his YouTube channel, Volkanovski claimed he’d get his revenge before a ‘fight’ broke out between them and the Australian submitted after taking punches and elbows from the Dagestani internet sensation.

Henry Cejudo believes Sean O’Malley should wait for him to defeat Aljamain Sterling first
Henry Cejudo has told Sean O’Malley to sit and wait for him to deal with Aljamain Sterling and win the bantamweight title.
O’Malley is expected to challenge for the belt after defeating Petr Yan via split decision at UFC 280. The win for ‘Sugar’ meant he leapt up the rankings, replacing ‘No Mercy’ as the No.1-ranked bantamweight.
In a video uploaded to Cejudo’s YouTube channel, ‘Triple C’ suggests that ‘Funk Master’s’ wrestling would be too much for O’Malley, believing he should fight the bantamweight champion first:
“I think what you should do Sean, I think you should sit pretty… wait for me to beat up Aljamain and then me and you could have a little showdown. I like that idea… Because I don’t know if I really have faith in Sean O’Malley beating ‘Chito’ Vera, you know? Could he beat him? Yeah, ‘Chito’s’ very, very beatable. You just have to have the IQ and the tactics to be able to beat him. But does Sean have that?”
