It Finally Happened: Hasbulla Sat Down For His First Proper Interview

History is defined by its most notable conversations. Richard Nixon and David Frost. Diana, Princess of Wales and Martin Bashir. Charlie Sheen and, well… that was really all Chucky Adonis Blood. But what of 2022? And, indeed, whom? The answer is Dagestani icon, Hasbulla Magomedov, and his first formal interview conducted by none other than Barstool Sports’ roaming finger-on-the-pulse, Caleb Pressley.

Filmed on location in Dubai, the latest instalment of Pressley’s ongoing Sundae Conversation series had been something demanded by global audiences for some time now. This was, of course, the long-anticipated union of two internet icons. The meme-rich content that was promised. The entirety of Dave Portnoy’s Barstool Sports dream realised in the span of just 15 minutes and 12 seconds. This, ladies and gentlemen, is what lazy Mondays were created for.

Key highlights from the very first recorded interview of Hasbulla include:

  • On his love of cars
    “I like tuning them up. I like drifting. I like the noise they make.”
  • On protecting himself in these streets
    “When I carry the blade, people keep their mouth shut. Now I have my brothers with me… better than a knife.”
  • On hitting the gym
    “I don’t pump iron, I am iron.”
  • On his greatest weakness
    “When people try to insult me, I’m quick to clap back and then it’s beef.”
  • On his political ambitions
    “I want to become Minister of Internal Affairs for Dagestan… First I’ll find my haters and make them panic. I’ll slow down the speed limit within the city, but increase it on the highway. All the speed cameras are coming down.”

But as seasoned spectators of the fiery 19-year-old sensation will tell you, what “Mini Khabib” lacks in growth hormones, he more than makes up for with his trigger-switch rage. Which is precisely why roughly halfway through the otherwise scholarly affair, a classic case of lost in translation led Hasbulla to hit the metahorical pause, before literally hitting the talented Mr Pressley with everything he had loaded in those tiny fists.
