Всем Салам Алейкум. Последние несколько дней Умар пролежал в отеле с высокой температурой, которая была вызвана стафилококковой инфекцией. Но несмотря на это он и вся наша команда были настроены, что он выступит 24 октября. Сегодня утром, перед нашим вылетом в Абу-Даби ему стало хуже и его госпитализировали в Дубае. – Выздоравливай Братишка, значит так было суждено @umar_nurmagomedov

All Salam Aleikum. For the last few days, Umar has been in a hotel with a high fever, which was caused by a staphylococcal infection. But despite this, he and our entire team were determined that he would perform on October 24th. This morning, before our flight to Abu Dhabi, he got worse and was hospitalized in Dubai.”

“Get well brother, so it was meant to be,” Khabib wrote on Instagram

This isn’t the first time that one of Khabib’s teammate has had an issue leading up to UFC 254. Fellow teammate, Islam Makhachev, was set to face Rafael dos Anjos on the main card. However, the latter had to pull out after testing positive for Coronavirus. Khabib has even asked Michael Chandler to fight Islam for the No. 1 contender spot.
