Khabib Nurmagomedov’s father is reportedly on life support after his recovery from heart surgery took a turn for the worse. Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov went under the knife last week at a Moscow military hospital after suffering a COVID-19-induced stroke.
Abdulmanap was placed in a medically-induced coma but seemed to be on the road to recovery after awaking and exhibiting signs of improvement.
According to RT, however, his recovery from bypass surgery has taken a turn for the worse, which has led doctors to place him on life support.
The Dagestani coach’s turn for the worse has seen him placed back in a coma.
Abdulmanap, 57, was first admitted to hospital last month after he exhibited flu and pneumonia-like symptoms.

Nurmagomedov’s father showed signs of recovery, although it’s been said his readmission to hospital stemmed from poor treatment in his native Dagestan.
Upon his arrival to hospital in Moscow, he was diagnosed with the coronavirus – which he initially tested negative for when he was in Makhachkala.
News of Abdulmanap being placed on a ventilator came a matter of hours after Nurmagomedov revealed his father was still in a serious condition.
“He’s in the hospital now, he’s in a very serious condition,” the UFC lightweight champion said during an Instagram Live broadcast.

“He had heart complications stemming from the virus.
“This virus has very seriously affected his heart since he had a heart operation a year ago.
“He’s had surgery again. He’s in a difficult situation, very difficult. We ask Allah to return him to us.
“Thank you very much to everyone who writes, who sends their support. May Allah help us all.”
Abdulmanap isn’t the only member of Nurmagomedov’s family to have been affected by COVID-19.
“More than 20 of my close relatives have suffered (from) COVID-19 and also had to stay in intensive care,” Nurmagomedov said. “Some of them are not with us anymore.”
Nurmagomedov’s next outing is expected to be a lightweight title unification fight against Justin Gaethje, who claimed the interim belt earlier this month in the main event of UFC 249.
The UFC are hopeful of having the fight take place in September, although that timeframe is currently up in the air due to the current condition of Nurmagomedov’s father.
