Somebody pinch us because we’re surely dreaming. The legends over at event management company The Hour Group has just announced modern icon – Hasbulla Magomedov – is making the journey all the way from Dagestan to grace Australia with his presence.
While the South Melbourne-based operation has yet to reveal specifics (i.e. dates, locations, ticket prices) based on its past tours – from An Evening With Khabib Nurmagomedov, An Evening With Kobe Bryant, to An Evening With Shaq – we can only assume Hasbulla is coming to Australia for yet another unforgettable Hour Group speaking event.
And given how they’ve also promoted the drop of two Khabib Nurmagomedov x Hasbulla x Tyson Beck Official Limited Edition Trading Cards – complete with officially licensed + authenticated on-card autographs from both GOATs – in conjunction with Hasbulla’s own side hustle, we can only assume the upcoming event will involve some spruiking of collectibles. Digital or otherwise.
“Mini Khabib” appears to be enjoying the global attention lavished upon him recently. Aside from The Hour Group’s hotly-anticipated Hasbulla Australia Tour 2022, the beloved 19-year-old recently sat down for his first formal interview, which was conducted by Barstool Sports’ roaming finger-on-the-pulse: Caleb Pressley.
Filmed on location in Dubai, the ultra-viral instalment of Pressley’s ongoing Sundae Conversation series proved to be 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. Such pearls of wisdom dropped by Mr Magomedov included…
- 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.”
