Haqparast was born in Germany to Afghan parents who came as refugees from Kandahar, Afghanistan. He attended kickboxing classes as his parents believed he was overweight at fourteen years old. Instead, Haqparast joined an MMA class and decided to be an MMA fighter after witnessing a sparring session in the room next to the kickboxing class.
Mixed martial arts career
Haqparast started his professional MMA career since 2012 and amassed a record of 8-1 before signed by UFC.
Ultimate Fighting Championship
Haqparast made his UFC debut on October 21, 2017 against Marcin Held, replacing injured Teemu Packalen at UFC Fight Night: Cerrone vs. Till.  He lost the fight via a controversial unanimous decision. 
Haqparast was scheduled to face Alex Reyes on March 17, 2018 at UFC Fight Night: Werdum vs. Volkov. However, on March 8, it was reported that Alex Reyes pulled out of the fight due to injury and he was replaced by Nad Narimani. The bout was scrapped on the day of the event as Haqparast was deemed unfit to fight by the medical team due to an infectious eye condition.
