While UFC 267 was centered around the athletes competing inside the cage Saturday in Abu Dhabi, a massive star cast a ginormous shadow by his front-row presence at the event.

Viral Russian social media sensation and global star Hasbullah had one of the best seats in the house at Etihad Arena as he sat next to UFC president Dana White and mixed it up with a number of the promotion’s big names past and present.

Before, during, and after the fight, the 19-year-old little man created quite the frenzy on social media for his in and out-of-cage appearances. He met MMA legends like Daniel Cormier and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira (who may or may not have known that Hasbullah was not actually a young child) and reconvened with friends Khabib Nurmagomedov and Islam Makhachev.

Scroll below to see some of Hasbullah’s best moments from UFC 267.
