Famous internet personality Hasbulla Magomedov and Hollywood superstar Mark Wahlberg were recently invited as Dana White‘s guests on the set of the Power Slap League. The two celebrities were brought in for a promotional push ahead of Power Slap’s finale this weekend.
Hasbulla is already a sensation in the world of MMA, known for his reckless yet humorous pranks on fighters and his close affiliation with Dagestani champions like Islam Makhachev and Khabib Nurmagomedov. Meanwhile, the veteran actor has starred in several Hollywood blockbusters like Lone Survivor, Shooter, Uncharted, and Ted.
Dana White showed the 20-year-old Russian around the Power Slap League set and even let him try his hand at slap fighting. In a recent video on Twitter, Wahlberg can be seen goofing around with Hasbulla in an attempt to get ‘Mini Khabib’ to slap him.
The two celebrities even had a face-off, with the actor asking the Russian to slap him in good humor. While the slap did not materialize, ‘Mini Khabib’ was being prodded on with a voice prompting:
“Put him down Has… He’s thinking about it.”
Nevertheless, the popular internet star and the actor appeared to have enjoyed themselves at the event.
The Power Slap finale goes down on Saturday (March 11), and fans can catch it live and for free on the Rumble app.
