    It was earlier reported that the father of Russian MMA champion of Dagestani origin Khabib Nurmagamedov, Abdulmanap, had sunk into a coma, several weeks after he was admitted to a hospital with suspected pneumonia.

    UFC President Dana White has turned to Twitter to express his support to the father of Khabib Nurmagamedov, who has reportedly sunk into a coma.

    Mr White continued by saying that he knew how close Khabib is with his father, adding that his thoughts were with the Nurmagomedov family.

    Besides the UFC president, Khabib's "eternal rival," Irish MMA fighter Conor McGregor, has also expressed words of support towards Abdulmanap Nurmagamedov, pointing out his priceless contribution to the world of MMA.

    Abdulmanap Nurmagamedov was admitted to a hospital on 25 April with suspected pneumonia. His family hasn't commented on his health conditions yet.
