Hasbulla is savage
In fact, Hasbulla recently got his thousands of followers on Twitter laughing at “The Notorious” after he revealed that his chicken’s name is “Conor McGregor.”

What’s chicken in Russia?
It can be recalled that Nurmagomedov himself used to refer to McGregor as “chicken,” which apparently is a “severe insult” in Russia.
“If you call someone a chicken in Russia, that is a person that gets raped in prison – in male prison. That’s what a chicken is in Russia. And Khabib knows that, and everybody knows that. It is a very, very, severe insult,” McGregor’s teammate Artem Lobov explained after Khabib called Conor “chicken.”
Hasbulla gained popularity on social media because of his unique appearance due to dwarfism and after his mock face-off and press conference with nemesis Abdu Rozik went viral. He was dubbed by some as “Mini Khabib” and has also been courting UFC president Dana White to give him a shot in his company, something the UFC boss is not completely dismissing.
Despite the fact that Khabib Nurmagomedov has been a big fan of Hasbulla for a long time, he is confident that as a social media personality he will be able to earn “billions” in the future.
As for McGregor, we wouldn’t be surprised if he claps back at Hasbulla sooner rather than later.
