Khabib shares first Instagram post since father’s death

I lost my dad last year but it feels like yesterday.

Lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov lost his father on July 3rd but that hasn’t stopped reporters and fans from pestering Dana White with questions about when the Russian might return. Khabib‘s relationship with his father Abdulmanap was much more complicated and special than most because his father was not only a parent but a major part of his mixed martial arts success. The champ shared his first post since his dad’s passing on Instagram today and we wish him all the best.
