Hasbulla has been in the headlines for the past few days and none of them have been necessarily positive. It all started when the Russian social media influencer got himself arrested in Dagestan. The 20-year-old broke multiple traffic rules as he, along with his friends, raced on the streets, performed some car stunts, and allegedly blocked the road for their own entertainment.

According to reports, Hasbulla and his friends were celebrating a wedding ceremony. While the method of celebration is consistent with the traditions of that part of the world, it is still not in compliance with the traffic codes. While Hasbulla was released from the initial detention and placed under house arrest, it did not stop Mike Tyson from making fun of him.
Known for being one of the most fearsome boxers of all time, fans have seen a different side to Mike Tyson in recent years. He showed off his sense of humor once more with an Instagram post. Tyson hosts “Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson,” one of the most popular podcasts in the combat sports world. Through the official Instagram account of the podcast, Tyson posted a video where he photoshopped himself beside a driving Hasbulla.

The caption of the video reads, “Actual footage of Hasbulla’s traffic incident.”
Mike Tyson previously mistook Hasbulla for a child
Mike Tyson has invited several guests to his podcast over the years, from all walks of life. However, one guest that that the fans were shocked to see on the podcast, was Hasbulla. The 20-year-old has more of an association with the world of MMA, as his impersonation of former UFC lightweight champ, Khabib Nurmagomedov, turned him into an overnight sensation.
Afterward, he also had beef with Abdu Rozik, a fellow influencer, and musician. Their back-and-forth gained millions and millions of views online and made Hasbulla a worldwide superstar. From memes to funny videos, Hasbulla has also grown his brand and has gained around 8.5 million followers on Instagram. It ultimately got him an invitation from Mike Tyson to be on his podcast.
Usually, Tyson is very stoic during his shows. But, even Tyson could not contain his excitement to meet the influencer. From shadowboxing with Hasbulla to picking him up like a child to kissing his neck, both Hasbulla and Mike Tyson had a great time. However, it did earn Tyson some backlash for treating Hasbulla Magomedov like a child. Tyson was seemingly unaware that Hasbulla was a fully grown man.
The Russian has a condition called GHD (Growth Hormone Deficiency). In such cases, the secretion of growth hormones does not happen in a proper manner, which causes a form of dwarfism. Hence, Magomedov’s growth has stopped at 3’4. However, despite his age, Tyson seemed very amused with Habulla’s childlike appearance and jovial mannerisms.
