Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, the father and coach of UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, died this morning.

The Head of the Republic of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, announced this in his telegram channel.

Sepsis and cerebral haemorrhage have been cited as the cause of death.

It bears restating that Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov was hospitalised a month ago with suspected COVID-19, and later, when his condition deteriorated, was transferred to Moscow for treatment. Not long ago, Khabib Nurmagomedov, in an interview with Channel One, reported on the improvement of his father’s condition, but this tragedy surprised both the doctors and the coach’s relatives.

In this regard, we offer our deepest condolences to the relatives of the deceased and ask Allah the Almighty (SWT) for forgiveness of his sins.
