Hasbulla Magomedov, also known as ‘Mini Khabib,’ recently tweeted a video of himself impersonating Khabib Nurmagomedov‘s UFC 229 weigh-in. The Russian blogger delightfully imitated his hero by stepping upon a scale and reenacting Khabib Nurmagomedov’s movements.
Magomedov got his nickname after releasing multiple hilarious videos of himself attempting to fight others.
Are Hasbulla Magomedov and Khabib Nurmagomedov related?
Magomedov appears to have a friendly relationship with his idol Nurmagomedov. Nurmagomedov even took to his official Instagram handle to post a video of Magomedov.
In recent months, footage of Khabib and ‘Mini Khabib’ dining together has gone viral.
Magomedov has been mistaken for Khabib Nurmagomedov’s son by many fans. In truth, the two have nothing in common.
Magomedov has the appearance of a five-year-old child due to an unidentified illness that has hindered his growth.
Rendition of the UFC 229 weigh-ins
Magomedov’s take on the UFC 229 weigh-ins has MMA fans all over the world in stitches. In real life, though, opponents Conor McGregor and Nurmagomedov engaged in one of the most intense stare-downs.
McGregor was the first to step onto the scale. As McGregor made his way onto the platform, the Las Vegas audience roared. After his official weight of 154.5 pounds was disclosed, the Irishman flexed and gave out a war cry.
Khabib was next, and he was cool as a cucumber. He got onto the scale and measured exactly 155 pounds.
As the fighters squared off, UFC president Dana White fought to keep them apart. When the Dublin native got too close to Khabib, a brawl nearly erupted.
Khabib overpowered McGregor from start to finish on fight night. The Dagestani utilised his superior wrestling abilities to take ‘Notorious’ down and suffocate him with a pounding barrage. Khabib won the fight when he forced McGregor to tap out in round four with a rear-naked choke.
But the action did not stop there. The champion jumped over the cage and charged at McGregor’s partner Dillon Danis, who watched from the sidelines. Meanwhile, McGregor exchanged fists with some of Khabib’s bodyguards.
