Just a few days later and Abdulmanap eased fears by telling the media he is feeling fine despite reports to the contrary. As of right now, no-one from the Nurmagomedov family has spoken out to update the public about Abdulmanap’s medical condition.

Khabib Nurmagomedov is well on his way to becoming the most dominant 155lb champion in UFC history. The undefeated Russian already holds high profile wins over Conor McGregor, Dustin Poirier, and Rafael Dos Anjos. While he primarily bases his camps at the American Kickboxing Academy in California his father Abdulmanap is very much an integral part of the team.
