Khabib Nurmagomedov Loses His Cool With Journalist For Asking About Late Father Abdulmanap

Khabib Nurmagomedov Loses His Cool With Journalist For Asking About Late Father Abdulmanap

Khabib Nurmagomedov lost his cool with a journalist for asking about the death of his father.

Abdulmanap served as the UFC lightweight champion's trainer and he tragically died due to complications caused by coronavirus back in July, aged 57.

The Russian is set to return to action at UFC 254 against Justin Gaethje and when asked if his father's death has impacted training, he decided to hit back.

"I don't understand why you guys keep asking me this... what do you think?" he begun.

"I don't understand when people ask me 'how difficult for you to train without your father?'

"What do you think, do you have your father? If something happened with him, what do you think, it's going to be difficult for you or easy? I am human too, of course it is very difficult."

Ahead of his first fight in over a year, Khabib wasn't short in confidence and he told BT Sport that victory can be achieved inside four rounds.
