Social media sensational Hasbulla Magomedov and UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski engaged in a mock fight backstage at a UFC 280 fight week event. Later on, Hasbulla took Volkanovski’s UFC featherweight championship belt and posed over him with it. The mock video went viral on the internet.
Hasbulla recently signed a five-year contract with the UFC. UFC president Dana White subsequently confirmed that Mini Khabib has indeed been signed to the UFC. Whether or not he fights in the organization remains to be seen. With that being announced, the 19-year-old is already on his way to mocking and trolling UFC fighters.
In a video posted by Alexander Volkanovski’s official YouTube channel, the featherweight kingpin features himself and The Russian Influencer. It showed the internet personality smashing a burger in Volkanovski’s face. “The Great” then jokingly asserted that he’d take exact revenge on Hasbulla for what he did.
The camera then panned towards the door, with Hasbulla making his way into the room. He proceeded to launch a mock offensive on the current UFC Featherweight Champion. The 19-year-old then attacked the No. 1-ranked pound-for-pound UFC fighter with punches, elbows, and knees until “Volk” admitted his defeat. Mini Khabib also took the Australian fighter’s UFC featherweight title belt and posed with it over him.

“You all saw that, right? Burger in the face, chilli in the eye. “That, literally, was burning me,” Alexander said in a skit posted on the UFC’s Twitter page.
Although the whole thing was just a joke, fans enjoyed it either way. Yet a few UFC fighters, like Conor McGregor, who gets annoyed by anything that Hasbulla does, might be an issue to consider for the company.
