Similar to many Dagestani fighters in today’s combat sports scene, Magomed Abdulkadirov holds deep admiration for the legendary Khabib Nurmagomedov. Their connection runs even deeper as they both share an unwavering paternal support that has shaped their journeys.

In an emotionally charged interview with, the promotional newcomer opened up about his personal life beyond the arena, paying a heartfelt tribute to his late father. His father, a constant presence throughout his life, played a pivotal role in propelling him to become one of the world’s premier submission grapplers.

The Universal Fighters standout revealed:

“My late father was my biggest supporter. He passed away in 2020. He watched all my fights, staying engaged with my plans, travels, and aspirations. His unwavering interest and support were my driving force. I fought relentlessly to prove my capabilities at the highest level. I believe he was proud of me.”

As he embarks on the most significant match of his professional career, Magomed Abdulkadirov faces an unfortunate absence—the absence of his beloved father. The multiple-time UWW World Grappling Champion and the 2015 ADCC European Trials winner is on a quest for gold, seeking to break Tye Ruotolo’s undefeated streak under the ONE banner.

Should he achieve a remarkable upset at ONE Fight Night 16, Abdulkadirov will leave Lumpinee Stadium in Bangkok as the inaugural ONE welterweight submission grappling world champion.

Though physically separated, Magomed Abdulkadirov’s father’s legacy lives on through his son’s every competition.
