Putin allocates over $9 million to the new martial arts school in Dagestan
The Russian President Vladimir Putin recently signed a bill to allocate 600M Rubles (over $9 million) to the new martial arts school in Dagestan, Russia.
This happened after the UFC Lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and his father, Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, previously met Putin and asked him to help financially to build a new training facility near Makhachkala at their home Republic of Dagestan.
Putin allocated over $9 million to build a new training facility which will serve as a mixed martial arts school (freestyle wrestling, sambo, combat sports, MMA, Muay Thai, boxing, kickboxing) for kids and professional athletes. This school is going to be named after Khabib Nurmagomedov and it will be run by Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov.
Abdulmanap is one of the most knowledgable and successful martial arts coaches in Russia and in the world. He is a father and the main coach of the undefeated UFC Lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.
