'Smelly little inbred': Conor McGregor targets 3-foot-four TikTok star Hasbulla Magomedov in OUTRAGEOUS rant
Conor McGregor has stirred up talk on social media by going after internet sensation Hasbulla Magomedov. The UFC fighter attacked the 99-centimeter-tall Russian prankster who is presently on tour in Australia in a slew of since-deleted tweets.
McGregor tweeted, "I'd love to boot that little gimp 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." The former UFC champion in two divisions also tweeted some extremely hurtful things, including calling Hasbulla a "little smelly inbred."
The phrase "Hon the gaa" refers to the Irish Gaelic Athletic Association, which supports sports like Gaelic football, the game McGregor mentioned when he stated he intended to kick Magomedov.
Hasbulla responded to the Irishman right away. "I don't follow bums… didn't know someone was running their mouth," Hasbulla tweeted. He later added, "At least one of us kept an undefeated record. Hasbulla 1. McGregor 0."
Australian UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski warned McGregor sternly after the attack on Hasbulla, with whom he had just finished filming a video on Wednesday, "You'll have to go through me first, Leave my mate alone @TheNotoriousMMA."
Hasbulla, who is close friends with McGregor's ferocious prior adversary Khabib Nurmagomedov, has previously made fun of the Irishman. Early in August, Hasbulla released a video of his new pet chicken online. He said, "This is my chicken named Conor McGregor. There's my beauty."
During their battle, Nurmagomedov called McGregor the same term, which is seen as a particularly offensive slur in Russia. McGregor's Russian teammate Artem Lobov explained at the time, "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."
Late in 2020, Hasbulla gained notoriety when he started sharing videos of himself pulling dangerous pranks and stunts on Instagram and TikTok. He quickly gathered a sizable online following thanks to his distinctive looks and self-assured demeanor, including 2.1 million Instagram followers and 4.7 billion views on TikTok. He was born with dwarfism, a growth hormone deficit that results in unusually small stature and normal body dimensions.
