Khabib Nurmagomedov remains in Russia and the UFC’s lightweight champ is reporting that his family has suffered extensively, on account of COVID-19.

Recently it was reported that Khabib’s father, Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov had been critically ill as the result of pneumonia and then heart issues. But, in a recent video statement, Nurmagomedov said his father’s condition was the result of complications stemming from the coronavirus (translation via MMA Junkie).

“More than 20 of my close relatives have suffered (from) COVID-19 and also had to stay in intensive care. Some of them are not with us anymore,” Khabib said. “As for my father, there’s been so much support, and people kept asking about my father.

“My father is still at the hospital. He’s still going through this disease. He also had a heart complication due to COVID-19. Abdulmanap had surgery for his heart last year and also had the second one these days [sic], so he is still in bad condition. That’s all I can say.

“I want to thank all the people for your support, wishes and your prayers. I also wish all the best. Be safe and healthy. Thank you very much.”
