Habullah Magomedov received huge cheers at UFC 280

UFC fans loved that Hasbullah Magomedov was in the crowd at UFC 280, as the little Russian with a big personality received a huge ovation.

The petite 19-year-old has become an internet sensation over the past two years, with his incredible lifestyle often featured on social media.

habullah had run-ins with the likes of Shaquille O’Neal, who took a bad rap from the teenager, Logan Paul and even Conor McGregor.

The recently signed UFC Russian was in the crowd in Abu Dhabi on Saturday night as the promotion returned to the Etihad Arena.

Hasbullah was there to support compatriot Islam Makhachev, as he took on Charles Oliveira for the lightweight championship, in the main event.

There were plenty of big names in attendance, including new welterweight champion Leon Edwards, as well as those on a stacked card.

However, it was Hasbullah that the rest of the crowd were clearly happy to see, with the teenager getting huge adulation when the camera turned to him and put him on the big screen in the arena.

The title was vacant after the Brazilian was unable to make weight in his previous title defense against Justin Gaethje but ended up winning the fight.

Makhachev has felt like the man to come since he made his cfu his debut in 2015, although he lost his second fight.

He had recently moved up in class when it came to his opponents, continuing to dominate everyone in the division, leading to his title fight.

Oliveira has the most finishes in the promotion’s history but found himself back for the first time since 2017.

Even before this fight, Hasbullah could be heard shouting his encouragement to a fighter, during the victory of the English fighter of Russian origin Muhammad Mokaev over Malcolm Gordon.

The middleweight, who himself is expected to be a future champion despite only six fights in the UFC so far, fell out with Khabib’s brother Abdurazak.
