As reported earlier, Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov passed away earlier today following restrictions from COVID-19 infection. The 57-year old Abdulmanap is the father of undefeated UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Now new details have emerged and it is being reported that Abdulmanap suffered two strokes. He suffered from a heart attack and a brain stroke.
While reports from last month which quoted Khabib Nurmagomedov stated that, Abdulmanap was recovering from the virus, but he was still placed in ICU.
However, after he was cured of COVID-19, he suffered two strokes. The doctors were able to cure the heart attack but were unable to cure the damage caused to the brain.
Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov who is a friend of Abdulmanap gave further details in an interview to Championat.
“Abdulmanap suffered two strokes, in his heart [a heart attack] and brain,” Ramzan Kadyrov told the Russian outlet.
“They managed to treat his heart, but not his brain, so he didn’t emerge from a coma.
“The situation was too serious, it was already too late.
“The doctors did everything they could, they even tried to connect him with the president [Putin], but his condition was too serious.”
Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov was recovering well
Last week, Khabib Nurmagomedov told a Russian news channel in an interview that his father was cured of COVID-19, but the virus has had a terrible effect on his kidneys lungs and he was still placed in ICU.
“His condition is still serious, he’s still in intensive care,” Nurmagomedov (via RT Sport). “The coronavirus itself is behind him, but the virus has had consequences for his kidneys and his heart.
“As for the virus, there’s no need to worry, only about the other consequences.”
In April, his father underwent a heart surgery that arose after complications from getting infected by Coronavirus. Abdulmanap had heart surgery last year and was suffering from pneumonia-like symptoms.
Following this, he was advised by doctors to get tested for Coronavirus, he refused and went about his daily activities. As his conditions worsened he had to be flown into Moscow on a special plane where he tested positive for COVID-19.
