Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, the father of Russian UFC superstar Khabib Nurmagomedov, had been in failing health for weeks after a battle with the COVID-19 virus, and his confirmed his condition took a turn for the worse.

Nurmagomedov passed away at the age of 57 after spending the last few weeks in a coma due to complications from this virus.

Abdulmanap was placed in a medically induced coma a month ago after contracting the COVID-19 virus. While Khabib confirmed a few weeks ago that his father had beaten the virus, he claimed that he was still facing major complications and was in a coma.

Abdulmanap served as Khabib's primary trainer, and his son has become one of the UFC's best fighters of all time, beating huge names like Conor McGregor while holding onto an unbeaten mark in UFC.

Abdulmanap helped forge one of the greatest and most dominant fighters MMA has ever known, and the sport is multitudes better with his contributions. Our condolences go out to Khabib and the Nurmagomedov family in this difficult time.
