The championship fight for the belt and the most important battle in the career of the UFC #1 ranked Khabib Nurmagomedov will take place on March 5 in Las Vegas. On Sunday a big support group from Dagestan including family and friends, for instance, his younger brother Abubakar have departed to the US. A total of 26 people.

However, Habib’s father, the legendary mentor, the head coach of the team Eagles MMA Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov was denied the US visa.

– I have been to the US before and I was always honestly saying what I think. I guess that is the reason why I was denied a visa this time – said Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov

I will not be able to support Khabib personally and two other well-known MMA fighters, his cousin Shamil Zavurov and second cousin Mahammadrasul Hasbulaev.

During the championship in Moscow where fight club “Ahmad” was participating reporters have talk to Habib’s family and found out that they feel confident in Khabib’s victory over Tony Ferguson.

Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov: – My son Khabib Nurmagomedov can have two fights in one evening against Tony Ferguson and Conor McGregor and defeat them both.
