Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, father of current UFC champion Khabib Nurmagomedov is currently in a critical condition and battling for his life in a Moscow hospital.
According to initial reports, Abdulmanap was hospitalized in Dagestan after getting critically ill. He was admitted after a suspected case of pneumonia, but complications arose because of heart problems. Following this, he was flown down to a military hospital in Moscow via a flight.
“Abdulmanap is in a bad condition, he’s in Moscow and in a coma,” the source, who was not named, reportedly told RT. “They didn’t treat him properly in Dagestan, and some complications arose. They flew him to Moscow, where he is now in a military hospital. He’s on his own there, they won’t allow family (to visit)”.
Khabib’s arch rival Conor McGregor also issues a statement on Abdulmanap’s condition on his twitter account.
Praying for the recovery of Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov. A man responsible for more World champions, across multiple fighting disciplines, than we even know.
A true martial genius!
Very saddened upon hearing this news tonight.
Praying for the Nurmagomedov family at this time 🙏 https://t.co/OVklQphPgN
