UFC champion Nurmagomedov says his father criticizes Covid-19, others in the family have died | Sport

Khabib Nurmagomedov, UFC light champion, says his father is in critical condition after becoming infected with Covid-19 and has lost several relatives to the virus.

Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov played an important role in his son’s successful mixed martial arts career and encouraged his son to fight since he was young. Khabib is undefeated in all 28 of his professional fights.

“There is a lot written on the Internet about my father. My father is in the hospital right now. It is in critical condition due to this virus. It had an impact on his heart because he had surgery there last year, and right now, they did another surgery. It is in a very difficult situation, very difficult. We ask Allah to return it to us, “Nurmagomedov said during an Instagram live chat on Monday.

The Dagestan fighter went on to say that other members of his family had been affected by the virus.

“In my personal case, I have had over 20 people sick from my family,” said Nurmagomedov. “More than 20 people were lying in intensive care. And many of them are no longer among us. Many acquaintances have died, many parents of my relatives. Everyone has difficulty managing it. “

Different news had circulated before Nurmagomedov’s statement on Monday. Some claimed that Abdulmanap had been subjected to a medically induced coma, while others claimed that he had had a heart attack or stroke.

Nurmagomedov, who is Muslim, encouraged those who observed Ramadan to practice social estrangement. “Our learned Islamic scholars are saying to us:” Stay home and pray for the holidays, “said Nurmagomedov.” You have no guests. Don’t go as guests. It is a very difficult situation. “

UFC president Dana White, who expressed concern about Abdulmanap’s health, hasn’t scheduled Nurmagomedov for any upcoming fighting, although he said he hopes the champion can fight Justin Gaethje in September.
