Khabib Nurmagomedov’s father died earlier today following an extensive battle with multiple health issues brought on by COVID-19.

Naturally, the MMA world took the time to react to the news and extend their condolences to the UFC Lightweight champion.

And despite his bitter rivalry with Khabib, Conor McGregor took the time to extend his condolences.

“The loss of a father, a coach and a dedicated supporter of the sport. Condolences and rest in peace Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov.”

Khabib was expected to face Justin Gathje sometime in September,  but it will now likely be delayed following Abdulmanap’s death.
