The former champion of the Absolute Fighting Championship (MMA) in lightweight Khabib Nurmagomedov competed against ring girls in martial arts tournaments.
“These are the most unnecessary people in martial arts. What function do they have? What do they do? First of all, we develop sports here. People want a show, but I think it’s wrong to mix it all up. I’m not against women in any way. A woman was created for men. It’s just that everything has its own framework in what we do and say, “Nurmagomedov said at a press conference at the Rossiya Segodnya news agency.
The ex-champion also noted that there will be no ring girls at the tournament in memory of Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, which will be held in Moscow on September 17. Recall that Nurmagomedov Sr. died from complications caused by coronavirus infection in July last year.
