Unfortunate news is once again trickling out of Moscow, Russia, as RT is reporting that Khabib Nurmagomedov’s father, Abdulmanap, has once again fallen into a coma and is on life support after his fragile health took a turn for the worse. Last week, Abdulmanap was placed in a medically-induced coma as a result of his ongoing battle with pneumonia. A few days later, he awoke from his coma, but was reportedly unable to speak despite showing some signs of improvement.

Abdulmanap was flown from Dagestan to a hospital in Moscow and underwent heart surgery after his health worsened following an initial battle with pneumonia that started in late April.
