Hasbulla Magomedov

Hasbulla Magomedov, also known as "Mini Khabib" on social media for his resemblance to MMA fighter Kabib Nurmagomedov, is an 18-year-old Russian blogger with an unknown genetic disorder that makes him look like a 5-year-old boy. He began posting comedic content on Instagram[1] in November 2020, and gained a significant fanbase over the next six months, with over 220,000 followers as of May 2021. He is also known as "General Vgorode."

Hasbulla gained a significant number of fans through TikTok starting around April 2021 as users began to repost clips of him and use them in various memes (examples shown below, left and right).


Some of Hasbulla's most popular content sees him impersonating MMA fighter Kabib Nurmagomedov, who some people believe he is related to (shown below). This led many to call Hasbulla "Mini Kabib." Hasbulla has notably leaned into fighting-themed content, often seen shadowboxing, fighting and training.

In April, footage of Nurmagomedov and Hasbulla having dinner and taking photos together began to circulate (shown below). The two became friends, and Hasbulla was soon inspired to train to become an MMA fighter.
