Conor McGregor claims Khabib’s father’s Covid-19 illness was a cover up. He made the wild claim in response to a social media jab.
Khabib Nurmagomedov’s father has been in the hospital for the last couple of weeks due to coronavirus. Although, the respected trainer is now free from the deadly virus, he now has to deal with its consequences on his kidneys and heart.
Despite his uncle’s condition, Khabib’s cousin, Abubakar Nurmagomedov posted an image of Conor McGregor being choked on his instagram with the caption: “When it’s coronavirus and you can’t breathe.”

Conor McGregor claims Khabib’s father’s Covid-19 illness was a cover up
While Abubakar’s joke was surprising given the circumstance, McGregor took it a notch further and made the shocking claim that the Russian’s father health was a cover up in order to avoid fights.
“I figured it was all just a cover up about Abdulmanap,” McGregor wrote according to RT.com. “A cover up to hide the lack of activity and the pulling out of fights and running away. Good luck but remember – Allah sees all!”
McGregor had previously extended his support to the Nurmagomedov family when news of his condition broke.
“Praying for the recovery of Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov,” he tweeted. “A man responsible for more world champions, across multiple fighting disciplines, than we even know.
“A true martial genius! Very saddened upon hearing this news tonight.
“Praying for the Nurmagomedov family at this time.”
