UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov’s father Abdulmanap has reportedly been hospitalized with the flu and pneumonia.
That’s according to Dagestan sports commentator Ramazan Rabadanov who posted about the news on Instagram with a picture of himself and the senior Nurmagomedov.
“Abdulmanap is in Makhachkala, in the Second City Hospital. He got sick in the mountains,” he said. “He walked for two days, the brothers barely persuaded to go to the hospital. While coronavirus is not confirmed. They say the flu. No one is allowed to visit him. The world champion Shamil Zavurov also fell ill. They say there are other sick athletes.”
Hopefully Nurmagomedov and everyone close to him have a speedy and full recovery.
