Britain's BT Sports has released an animated short honoring undefeated lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and his father and coach Abdulmanap, who passed away from COVID-19 on July 3, 2020, at a military hospital in Moscow, Russia. The video touches on some key parts of their story, including:
•The bear Khabib wrestled as a child;
•The hill by their village that Khabib ran every day;
•Abdulmanap's visa issues that prevented him from cornering his son;
•UFC 242, where the father was finally in his son's corner; and,
•The main event at UFC 254 on Saturday.
