Nurmagomedov senior underwent the surgery after suffering heart trouble brought on by coronavirus infection last week and was subsequently entered into a medically-induced coma in the Moscow military hospital where he was being treated.

Despite waking from the coma and his condition being described as 'serious but stable' on Thursday, it was reported that the 57-year-old had still not recovered the ability to talk.


Abdulmanap had first fell ill in late April when he was diagnosed with pneumonia-like symptoms by local doctors in his Makhachkala hometown in Russia's Republic of Dagestan.

Ramazan Rabadanov, a close friend of the Nurmagomedov family, later said Abdulmanap's coma lasted an entire week before he regained consciousness.

“He was taken out of a coma,” Rabadanov told TASS. “He is in a serious condition, he's not talking, he was in a coma for seven days after a heart operation, he suffered a stroke."

The news of Abdulmanap's deterioration in health precipitated an outpouring of well wishes throughout the MMA world, including from Conor McGregor, a fierce former foe of his son.
