Khabib Nurmagomedov’s father in medically induced coma – Putin involved

"Khabib’s No. 1 message to people around the world right now is..."

Things have taken a turn for the worst for Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, father and mentor to UFC champ Khabib Nurmagomedov, who is now in a coma once again, enticing the involvement of the Russian head of state. 

It’s been a tough year for undefeated, UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov. So far he has not yet competed, and ended up having to withdraw from his much-anticipated title defence against Tony Ferguson at UFC 249. The event was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, which now seems to have affected Nurmagomedov deeply.

The undefeated lightweight recently revealed that Covid-19 was behind, amongst other personal issues, his father Abdulmanap’s illness. The Nurmagomedov father, who has mentored Khabib since a young age, was hospitalised earlier this month and is now in a medically induced coma following surgery. Originally the UFC champ’s father went to the hospital due to heart issues, but apparently his condition has been gravely worsened due to Covid-19.

Speaking to ESPN, Khabib’s manager Ali Abdelaziz revealed the serious condition Abdulmanap is now in, and also claims that Russian president Vladimir Putin is involved.

“I can confirm Khabib’s father is in a medically induced coma,” Abdelaziz said. “Khabib has been in contact with Vladimir Putin over the last several days, and he has promised Khabib’s father will receive the best medical treatment available.”

Abdelaziz also added that the UFC lightweight champion is urging his fans around the globe to continue social distancing in hopes of halting the spread of Covid-19.

“Khabib’s No. 1 message to people around the world right now is to stay at home, to prevent the spread of coronavirus,”
