Ali Abdelaziz : Nurmagomedov’s father is ‘improving’

Ali Abdelaziz :

“Khabib is very strong, his family is very strong and his father is very strong,” Abdelaziz told ESPN. “He’s improving. He opened his eyes, responding a little bit — good sign. Allah is in control. We have faith he will be better, but at the end of the day, it’s completely up to his health whether it progresses or not. But he’s progressing, and we’re very happy about this.”

Aside from being Khabib’s father, Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov is a respected sportsman in Russia and has trained many of the top fighters coming out of Dagestan. When the news was first announced that Abdulmanap had fallen ill, even Khabib’s most bitter rival, Conor McGregor, sent a message of support.
