Pabbi Khabib Nurmagomedov, Abdulmanap, féll frá í morgun. Abdulmanap var 57 ára gamall og mikilvægur hlekkur í teymi Khabib.
Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov var í dái í nokkrar vikur á sjúkrahúsi í Moskvu. Abdulmanap greindist með kórónavírusinn og fékk hjartaáfall í kjölfarið. Abdulmanap fékk einnig heilablóðfall og tókst læknum að bjarga hjartanu en ekki heilanum. Abdulmanap vaknaði ekki úr dáinu eftir heilablóðfallið og lést hann í morgun.
Abdulmanap var mjög virtur þjálfari í sambó, júdó, ólympískri glímu og MMA. Hann hefur alla tíð tekið virkan þátt í undirbúningi Khabib fyrir bardaga hans í UFC en gat aðeins einu sinni verið í horninu hans í UFC vegna vandræða með að fá vegabréfsáritun í Bandaríkjunum. Abdulmanap var í horninu hans í síðasta bardaga Khabib gegn Dustin Poirier í september.
Abdulmanap lagði til leikáætlun fyrir alla bardaga Khabib ásamt þjálfurum Khabib hjá AKA í Bandaríkjunum. Abdulmanap var mjög virtur í MMA samfélaginu og hafði mikil áhrif á MMA í Rússlandi.
Very sorry to hear of the passing of Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov. A genius of combat sports and absolute inspiration to so many up and coming fighters. Sadly only entering his prime of coaching such a loss and tragedy. RIP and best wishes to his family during this difficult time 🙏🏽— Coach Kavanagh (@John_Kavanagh) July 3, 2020
RIP Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov.— Peter Queally (@peterqueally) July 3, 2020
In my last fight in Russia the crowd started attacking the cage after I won,it was turning into a scary situation,my safety seemed in genuine danger.
Abdulmanap came into the cage & settled things very quickly.
He seemed like a great man.
Tributes rightfully pouring in for Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov. I had many positive & respectful, all be it brief, encounters both in & out of the UFC with him. A lot of respect my way. Condolences to Khabib & all of the family. RIP.— Marc Goddard (@marcgoddard_uk) July 3, 2020
Sending my condolences to those close to Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov. He appeared to be a father figure to many men. I learned about the hugely positive impact he had in Russian sports so he will be missed greatly. RIP🙏🏼 https://t.co/Uolnp0h3yA— John Gooden (@JohnGoodenUK) July 3, 2020
I spent some time around Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov in the lead up to #UFC242 and the respect he was shown by fighters and coaches was something I have rarely, if ever, seen before. At the open workouts, it was almost like he was the star of the show, not Khabib. A huge loss.— Peter Carroll (@PetesyCarroll) July 3, 2020
Sad to wake up to see the news about Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov. Javier Mendez once told me that, even in his late 50s, he was one of the few guys at AKA who still liked to get out on the mat and wrestle with Daniel Cormier. "I won't even wrestle with DC!" Javier said. Condolences.— Chad Dundas (@chaddundas) July 3, 2020
