Former dual-weight UFC champion Henry Cejudo has posted a video of Hasbulla attacking him during a mock staredown.
The wildly popular internet celebrity came face-to-face with Cejudo for the first time following a year of the two men calling each other out on social media.
‘Triple C’ uploaded a clip from their meeting to Twitter that showed Hasbulla getting violent and throwing punches when they went nose-to-nose.
“WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT. Here’s footage of Hasbulla blatantly assaulting me,” Cejudo wrote alongside the video.
“I won’t press charges as long as he SIGNS THE DAMN CONTRACT. It’s time to settle this once and for all. I’M COMING FOR YOU HASBULLA!!!”
Hasbulla is 3ft 4in and has a genetic disorder that gives him characteristics such as stunted growth and a high voice. Although it has not been officially confirmed, it is believed he has a form of dwarfism.
The Russian teenager first went viral when he was linked to a fight with fellow social media personality, Abdu Rozik, 18, who has a similar growth disorder, but nothing materialised after they squared at a press conference.
Since then, he has become a social media sensation, amassing more than three million followers on Instagram and two billion views on TikTok.

While he’s almost universally liked, UFC legend Conor McGregor recently decided he has a problem with Hasbulla and took unnecessary shots at him on social media starting the most unlikely beef of 2022.
Amid their ongoing feud UFC president Dana White announced he had signed the youngster to his fight promotion but refused to confirm if he will actually fight.
Meanwhile, Cejudo hasn’t fought since defending his bantamweight title with a second-round knockout win over Dominick Cruz at UFC 249 in May 2020.
The 35-year-old shocked everyone by retiring during his post-fight interview, but he has been talking about making a comeback ever since.
Cejudo is expected to fight Aljamain Sterling for the 135lb title in 2023 after his manager, Ali Abdelaziz, recently insisted the fight is ‘done deal.’
