Islam Makhachev, the reigning UFC lightweight champion, has undoubtedly been influenced by his coach and former champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov. However, there’s another figure who holds a special place in Makhachev’s heart: Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, Khabib’s father.

Born in Dagestan, Russia, both Makhachev and Khabib competed against formidable grapplers in the world of sambo. Their shared journey led them to the pinnacle of the UFC, where they stood as brothers in arms. Together, they scratched and clawed their way to success, supporting each other along the way. From childhood dreams to professional achievements, they proved that no ambition is too big.

Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov’s Legacy

Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, a revered coach, played a pivotal role in shaping both fighters. His impact extended beyond the gym, instilling discipline, work ethic, and unwavering determination. Having guided 18 fighters to Combat Sambo world championship glory, he left an indelible mark on the sport. His absence is deeply felt, but his spirit lives on.

Islam Makhachev’s Gratitude Towards Khabib and His Father

During the UFC 302 Countdown Show, Makhachev expressed his gratitude: “I gave the belt to Khabib [Nurmagomedov] because I know who made me. Him and his father [Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov].” These words reflect the profound influence that Abdulmanap had on Makhachev’s journey to becoming a champion.

In the absence of Abdulmanap, Makhachev continues the legacy—a testament to the enduring impact of a coach who believed in his fighters’ potential. The fight against Poirier promises to be a momentous occasion, and Makhachev’s inspiration remains unwavering.
