My MMA News sends thoughts and prayers out to the Nurmagomedov family.
The coronavirus pandemic shut down the entirety of sports, including the UFC for a brief period. The pandemic caused worldwide panic as entire countries shut down completely, bringing not only sports, but the global economy to a grinding halt.
Places are beginning to open back up. But in the United States, cases are rising instead of falling due to ignoring of the social distancing rules in place. Now the country is at threat of another shutdown as states like Louisiana have instituted mandatory masks in public again.
COVID-19 has cost a great deal of lives and Abdulmanap is only the latest. Stay safe and stay smart out there.
