UFC head Dana White commented on the condition of Russian fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov, whose father was hospitalized with coronavirus and heart problems, reports MMA Fighting.

He said that he talked with the athlete after he found out about everything. “It is clear that he is now devastated. But he is a very proud guy and prefers to behave like a man, ”said White.

He believes that it’s hard for Habib now. At the time of the conversation with Nurmagomedov, the UFC was going to send the Russians an agreement to fight with Justin Gatzhi. But after Habib’s father had serious health problems, it prevented White from completing what he started.
