Lighten Up, Khabib

UFC champion and Olympic medalist Khabib Nurmagomedov lost his mind this week after he trashed the UFC’s card girls as useless. The MeToo movement will respond in 3… 2…

UFC Champ and Russian gold medal Olympian Khabib Nurmagomedov took a shot at the UFC’s ring girl tradition Tuesday, calling them “useless” and hinting that they are indecent and an embarrassment.

Nurmagomedov recently bought out Russia’s Gorilla Fighting Championship and said he will rebrand it as the Eagle Fighting Championship. But he won’t be keeping one popular aspect of the show: the ring girls.

“Look, I don’t want to offend anyone: Ring girls are the most useless people in martial arts. What is their function? I have a question. You can show that it is the second round on the screen,” he told Russian media, according to MMA Junkie.

Wow, since did the Russians become prudes?

There’s nothing funnier than someone saying, “I don’t want to offend anyone” moments before offending everyone. Look, if he doesn’t like the card girls, that’s his prerogative; but there are plenty of red-blooded American males who enjoy watching the card girls in between rounds.
