Javier Mendez clarifies that Khabib Nurmagomedov’s involvement with his teammates is the same as before

Khabib Nurmagomedov started off the year by making the announcement that he is going to take a break from the world of mixed martial arts.

Because he wanted to spend more time with his family rather than actively teach, he skipped Islam Makhachev’s first title defense against Alexander Volkanovski. Makhachev successfully defended his title against Volkanovski. On the other hand, his previous coach Javier Mendez stated unequivocally that ‘The Eagle’ is still an active member of his squad today.

Mendez mentioned the following on his podcast concerning Khabib Nurmagomedov’s assistance to his cousin Umar:

“Khabib continues to… carry on in the same manner that he always has. Even though he isn’t there in person, he’s there for you over the phone. While he is conversing with him, he is watching the video. We are going to send you a video for you to watch. It’s great to see that he hasn’t changed a thing about his routine because he’s always been so reliable. I still have him, but I don’t have that presence in the corner any more.”
