According to Russian media site Life.ru, Khabibs father was denied a visa to enter the United States, despite making several trips over before.
“The Embassy, of course, knows everything but they have no right to tell us about the real reasons for the denial,” Abdulmanap explained. “Hopefully, in the future, we will be able to fly back to the United States.”
In any case, I would not miss the fight!” Abdulmanap stated. “If needed, I would watch on my phone high in the mountains.”
