Conor McGregor says he’d love to ‘boot that little g**p Hasbulla over a goal post’

Hasbulla hit back at McGregor with the ultimate takedown

Conor McGregor has called out social media sensation Hasbulla Magomedov but the TikTok star has had the last laugh.

The UFC fighter said he’d like to give the 3’3 TikToker, who has dwarfism and is known for his child-like appearance, the “boot”.

In a series of now deleted tweets, McGregor wrote: “I’d love to boot that little g**p Hasbulla over a goal post.”

“How much to get him on the volley?

I’m gonna make it my mission to score a 3 pointer with him one day, hon the gaa.”

McGregor has become notorious for his online rants and dodgy social media posts – many of which he later deletes – but this particular exchange turned nasty with the Irishman going on to call Hasbulla a “little smelly inbred”.

The 19-year-old social media star often calls out the biggest fighters, and egos, on the planet, from Floyd Mayweather to Logan Paul. But McGregor has had a special place in his heart.

Until now, McGregor, a dual-division UFC champion, hasn’t bothered to respond to the influencer who also goes by the name ‘Mini Khabib’s’ – after Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Hasbulla has already hit back at McGregor’s boot threat, with devastating effect.

“I don’t follow bums… didn’t know someone was running their mouth,” Hasbulla tweeted from his NFT account. “@ me next time @TheNotoriousMMA.”

He added: “At least one of us kept an undefeated record. Hasbulla 1. McGregor 0.”

Hasbulla recently upped the stakes by naming a chicken after the Irishman.

In footage posted online, Hasbulla filmed his new pet, saying: “This is my chicken, named Conor McGregor. There’s my beauty.”

Rather that be annoying at the suggestion that McGregor is a coward, mixed martial arts fans appeared to love the video which racked up millions of views.

Hasbulla is good friends with Khabib Nurmagomedov, with the pair hailing from the same region of Russia. The fighter has thrown his support behind his fellow countryman in recent years.

Nurmagomedov is a big fan of Hasbulla and believes he is capable of earning “billions” in the future due to his role as a social media personality.

He previously told Red Corner MMA: “He has to go to the US, all the big sports stars know him there, he’s very popular.

“Maybe do some good charity things [together], they can become ambassadors for charity funds… but I don’t want to see this fight. We have enough fighting around the world. Peace is better than war.

“He has to move for a couple of years to the US and become a billionaire. Minimum he can become a millionaire,” Nurmagomedov added.

After McGregor lost to Dustin Poirier at UFC 264, where the Irishman suffered a devastating leg break, Hasbulla posted a screenshot of the injury, alongside several laughing emojis.
