Conor McGregor says he is “praying for the Nurmagomedov family” as the Irishman put his feud with UFC lightweight champion Khabib on hold following reports that the Russian’s father and trainer Abdulmanap is in a coma.
Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, 57, is reported to be in a “serious condition” in a Moscow military hospital after being transferred on a special flight from his native Dagestan.
The respected trainer was initially admitted to hospital with suspected pneumonia but has seen his condition deteriorate significantly in recent days, as confirmed by Khabib’s friend and training partner Islam Makhachev on Wednesday.
