White releases statement

Recently it was reported that Khabib’s father and coach, Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, had been hospitalized in Dagestan due to a suspected case of pneumonia . But, more recently, a report out of Russia [2] relayed that Nurmagomedov had been moved to a hospital in Moscow and is in a coma.

Since then, White posted the statement below.

Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov is a true martial artist who lives a life of pride, honor and respect. He instilled those same values in his son, world champion Khabib, at an early age and was always in his corner throughout his career. (1/2)

I know how close Khabib is with his father and I’m saddened to hear about his current state. My thoughts are with Abdulmanap and the Nurmagomedov family as he continues to fight (2/2)

Here’s hoping Khabib’s father battles through this and we see him coaching his son Octagon side in the not too distant future.
