Khabib Beginning To Hate Combat Sports After Death Of Maxim Dadashev
This week, tragedy struck in the combat sport world, as the boxer Maxim Dadashev passed away from the injuries he sustained in his fight with Subriel Matias, last weekend in Maryland, USA.
The St Petersburg born Dadashev suffered a subdural hematoma (bleeding to the brain) and sadly passed away on Tuesday from heart failure, as a result of his injuries suffered in the ring.
Upon leaving the ring, Dadashev lost consciousness. After being taken to Prince George’s Hospital Center, he was placed into a medically induced coma and underwent a two hour surgery to relieve swelling. But regrettably this wasn’t enough to save his life.
Fans and fellow fighters from around the world have been paying their respects to Dadashev ever since the news broke. Among those was UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, who took to Instagram to express his condolences. Adding that every time he hears of such news, he begins to hate combat sports.
“This case proves once again that sport is not the most important thing, there are things that are much more important.
Every time I see or hear such news, I begin to hate this sport in which we beat each other.
Everything is temporary, fame, money, titles, and our whole life, we all leave this world, no one will remain. It is worth thinking.
Patience to all relatives and friends of Maxim.
Do good and may the Most High reward us for our deeds and deeds in the next life, and forgive us our sins.”
The video in Khabib’s Instagram post shows Dadashev’s trainer Buddy McGirt, calling the fight off after the 11th round, because of the damage his fighter was taking.
Khabib is from Russia’s Southern Republic of Dagestan in the North Caucasus region, which is where Dadashev’s ethnic Lezgin ancestors originate.
