KHABIB NURMAGOMEDOV’S dad Abdulmanap has reportedly died after complications caused by a coronavirus.
The legendary MMA trainer, who coached his own son to UFC title glory, has been in a Russian hospital since May after suffering a heart attack and pneumonia brought on by Covid-19.
Now, according to RT.com, family friend and the Chechen Republic leader Ramzan Kadyrov has confirmed the 57-year-old has lost his battle.
Khabib had kept a bedside vigil at the side of the man who turned him into the UFC lightweight champion of the world.
It is understood that Abdulmanap fell ill in his home republic of Dagestan and was taken to a military hospital in Moscow via a “special flight”.
Towards the end of June, it was reported that Abdulmanap had woken from a coma and was ‘responsive’.
But Khabib warned that his father still had a struggle on as “the virus has had consequences for his kidneys and his heart”.
Although Abdulmanap had “woke from his coma” he still couldn’t speak but could recognize his son.
