Hasbulla's Age And Rare Genetic Condition Explained By Doctorhasbulla_/Instagram

You’d have had to have been living under a rock to have not heard the name Hasbulla Magomedov. He’s been one of the most talked about people on the internet this year as his rivalry with Abdu Rozik rumbles on.

But who exactly is Hasbulla and why is he famous? 


Who is Hasbulla Magomedov?

Hasbulla is a blogger from Dagestan, Russia. He’s had a healthy following online since starting to post content on Instagram in 2020. 

But his announcement earlier this year about a fight with Abdu Rozik shot him to internet fame overnight. The fight has since failed to materialise.

Why is Hasbulla famous?


Hasbulla initially went viral on TikTok for his press conference videos where he is seen fighting and arguing with Abdu Rozik, and has since gone on to become huge in the MMA and general fight circles.

Hasbulla has been coined the “Mini Khabib” by the MMA community, after the social media star recreated one of UFC fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov’s pre-fight media conferences and it went viral. 

Khabib comes from the same part of Russia as Hasbulla and he put Dagestan on the map with his fighting career.

Khabib and Hasbulla have struck up quite the bromance and have posted pictures and videos together on TikTok and Instagram.

Is Hasbulla a kid?

No. Hasbulla is 18-years-old, but because of his condition, he’s often mistaken for a child.

What is Hasbulla’s condition?

Although nothing has been confirmed, it’s reported that Hasbulla has a Growth Hormone Deficiency (GHD), more commonly known as dwarfism. 

The deficiency is what can give people with the disease stunted growth and a child-like appearance and voice. 

The 18-year-old is around 3” 3’ (1 meter)  in height and weighs around 2.2 stone (16 kg). That’s according to Sportskeeda.


Abdu Rozik is believed to have the same condition.

Dwarfism types

According to the NHS, dwarfism (restricted growth) has two main characteristics:

  • Proportionate Short Stature (PSS) – a general lack of growth in the body, arms and legs 
  • Disproportionate Short Stature (DSS) – where the arms and legs are particularly short. This form of dwarfism is easier to detect at birth, whereas PSS might not become apparent until early childhood, when somebody isn’t growing as fast as they should be.

There are up to 400 medical conditions which can cause either of these two forms of dwarfism. That’s according to the Restricted Growth Association.

The NHS explains that, while some people with dwarfism could have other physical problems, such as bowed legs or an unusually curved spine, they don’t have any other serious problems. 

People with restricted growth should therefore expect to live a relatively normal life, with a normal life expectancy.
