Social media star Hasbulla Magomedov has signed a five year deal with the UFC that is reportedly ‘worth more than fighters’.
The 19-year-old, who suffers from a form of dwarfism, is a very well known social media influencer with an Instagram following of over 2.1 million and over 1.5 million followers on TikTok.
The Russian had his first fight with Abdu Rozik – who also has a similar growth disorder.
Advancing in his fighting career, Hasbulla has now signed a deal with the UFC.
Sports journalist Igor Lazorin updated social media on what this means for the 19-year-old:
“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…”
The UFC has not yet commented.
