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.

I think it’s cool but Khabib made it clear he has enough of people talking about it.

This is untrue, dumb ass. Khabib is being sick of asked by dimwitted reporters "Hey Khabib, is it hard to train since your dad died".
I'm sure seeing this video made Khabib feel good. This video almost made me cry actually. very simple, but well done none the less.

UG never fails.

He had enough of reporters asking him questions about it. He is involved in an annual memorial tournament in his father's memory, so he had it clear that he's cool with people talking about the passing of a wonderful man, his father.
