Khabib Nurmagomedo says death of Maxim Dadashev makes him ‘begin to hate’ combat sports – The Sun

UFC star Khabib Nurmagomedov admits the death of boxer Maxim Dadashev makes him “begin to hate” combat sports.

The Russian’s compatriot suffered a subdural hematoma – bleeding to the brain – following his 11th-round TKO loss to Subriel Matias in Maryland, USA, on Friday.


Dadashev lost consciousness after leaving the ring and was immediately rushed to UM Prince George's Hospital Center.

He was placed in a medically induced coma and underwent two hour brain surgery to help reduce swelling.

But the light welterweight passed away on Tuesday from heart as a result of his injuries.

Both combat worlds of boxing and MMA entered a period of mourning.

And UFC lightweight champion Khabib, 30, took to Instagram to express his condolences.

Writing in his native Russian, he posted a message that read: “This incident proves to us yet again, that there are more important things than sport.

“Every time I see or hear such news I begin to hate this sport of beating each other.”

He continued: “Nothing is permanent, glory, money, titles, our entire lives, we will all exit this world, no one will stay forever. It is worth pondering.

“Strength to Maxim’s loved ones. Do good things and may God reward us for our deeds and actions in the next life, and forgive us our sins.”

SECOND DEATH

More shock news descended on the boxing world this afternoon as the WBC confirmed the death of another fighter today.

Argentinean fighter Hugo Santillan has passed away from injuries suffered in his draw with Eduardo Javier Abreu on Saturday.

After the bout, Santillan passed out in the ring while awaiting the judges verdict.

Doctors rushed to his aid as they fitted him with an oxygen mask and rush him to hospital.

The South American underwent brain surgery for a clot, but he suffered two cardiac arrests before losing his fight for life.

Khabib, who defeated Conor McGregor on an explosive night last year, is currently preparing for his next fight.

He will defend his belt against Dustin Poirier on September 7 in Abu Dhabi at UFC 242.

Этот случай нам ещё раз доказывает, что спорт это не самое главное, есть вещи куда важнее. Каждый раз когда я вижу или слышу такие новости я начинаю ненавидеть этот спорт, в котором мы друг друга бьем. Все временно, слава, деньги, титулы, и вся наша жизнь, мы все уйдём с этого мира, никто не останется. Стоит задуматься. Терпения всем родным и близким Максима. Творите добро и пусть Всевышний вознаградит нас за наши дела и поступки в следующей жизни, и простит нам наши грехи.
