UFC lightweight champion, Khabib Nrmagomedov’s father took his last breath in Moscow, after a battle that lasted for more than two months. Khabib Nurmagomedov’s Father, Abdulmanap Dies at the Age of 57, as he was experiencing certain health issues brought by the COVID-19 virus.

However, the concrete cause of his death was pointed to a brain trauma that emerged after he had a stroke. The problems for Abdulmanap started back in late April when he was initially treated for pneumonia before being finally transferred to one of Moscow’s military hospitals. In the meantime, he refused to be tested for COVID-19 but after his arrival at the capital of Russia, he had to undergo the procedure with the results coming back as positive.

Post the testing Abdulmanap suffered a heart attack which only hampered his already ill-health condition. However, in order to save his life, the doctors were forced to perform bypass surgery and they kept the 57-year-old in a medically induced coma.

According to reports, Abdulmanap had started to recover and was a bit better later where he even woke up from the coma being able to communicate with his environment. When being asked about his father’s condition at that point in time, Khabib had stated that his father was feeling better but that his condition was still serious. It seems that the effects of COVID-19 were not the main reason behind the incident but the consequences that emerged later were.

Unfortunately, the good days didn’t last long as Abdulmanap fell back into a coma once again. In the end, as the illness prevailed, the world lost one of the best MMA trainers.

The news of this loss was firstly revealed by the leader of Russia’s Republic of Dagestan, Ramazan Kadirov, and was later spread by other multiple big-name media corporations.

Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov was an expert in Sambo, the Russian defense martial art, and also an excellent wrestler. He had passed on his knowledge to his son who then became one of the best MMA fighters of all time. As for many people, Khabib’s perfect record was a consequence of Abdulmanap’s careful and detailed approach before the beginning of any match.

As it used to be that he would guide his son through the various challenges and taught him not only about the things which are considered octagon but also matters surrounding that. Abdulmanap also had a quite friendly relation with Russia’s President, Vladimir Putin with whom he had even developed quite a personal relationship over the years.

Khabib is one of his three children and is two other children are Magomed and Amina.
