Hasbulla Magomedov punches Daniel Cormier

It is no secret that Hasbulla loves UFC. He is very enthusiastic about mixed martial arts. As a result, he does not leave a single chance to swing punches at anyone, regardless of who it may be. Last time, he punched boxer and YouTuber Adam Saleh. This time, Daniel Cormier was at the receiving end.

In a short video, Cormier and Hasbulla were seen together. By the end of the video, Hasbulla succeeded in sneaking a punch at the retired fighter’s face while he was busy recording their video.

In true Hasbulla fashion, a quick and sneaky punch is all it takes. Perhaps hanging out with several great fighters is to be blamed. Fans all around the world are amazed to see the kind of close relationship Hasbulla has with many fighters. Maybe their teachings will come in handy if his fight with Abdu Rozik happens in the future someday.
